Meet the Author

Internationally acclaimed songwriter, musician, and producer Steven Roback has recorded more than a dozen albums since 1982 with his bands and as a solo artist. As co-founder of the influential Los Angeles band Rain Parade, Steven helped create an impressive catalog of neo-psychedelic songs that critics have called among the most important from any era. Later, his self-produced albums under the name Viva Saturn received accolades for hook-filled pop songwriting and hypnotically textured production. Today, Steven continues to record as a solo artist and soundtrack contributor. He also produces other artists and has received high praise for his work on several recent albums. Steven writes about audio recording and related topics for books and magazines. For more information, see www.rainparade.com.
