STEVE JAMES is an artist, producer, and DJ based in Pittsburgh, PA. After bursting onto the scene in 2016 with a slew of progressive house remixes, he was nominated for a Grammy at age 17 for writing “Purpose” on Justin Bieber’s album by the same name. He also co-wrote and produced “In The Name of Love” with Martin Garrix and Bebe Rexha, and has cuts with other artists including Little Mix, Andy Grammer, Eric Nam, and The Backstreet Boys. As an artist/DJ he’s toured internationally performing with Martin Garrix, The Chainsmokers, Matoma, and Oliver Heldens, and has seen recent success with pop remixes for Zara Larsson and Kesha. His debut EP, “+One”, arrived at the beginning of 2020, featuring Steve on vocals for the first time alongside a number of talented collaborators. Now, Steve has started his own label, Butter Beats, where he’ll seek to release music and build an audience on his own terms and feature music from a curated roster of other independent artists.
