In a single song, Laury will play octaves, single lines, straight comping, upfront empressario work and finesse it with a guitar question and answer period. As a composer and producer as well as performer, Steve operates in that rarefield air where composition, execution and spontaneity interact to produce truly satisfying music. He also has a rare ability to keep his diverse musical gifts in their proper perspective. Says Laury, “My whole approach to music is that it should be like a painting. My guitar melodies and guitar soloing are always the focal point of that painting. But all the other instruments that go around it – the arrangement, bass line and everything else – must fit into that picture and embellish the focal point.” And what a focal point it is! Steve’s guitar artistry and compositions have made him a great contemporary writer, guitarist, arranger, and producer in the world today. "Laury has sold close to a million CD’s, also he has recorded eight number one national records in R&R, Gavin, and Billboard.
