Steve Schiff is our very special guest. Steve has had a whimsical musical journey. Within this 40 minuets interview / podcast we covered what was happening during his time in High school in the Los Angeles area and How the band “1994” started him down the path of a professional musical career.
After the band “1994”, Schiff started a band with Micki Steele (Bass Player of the “Bangles) called “Nadia Kapiche” which was an improvisational live performance band. Notably after that, Schiff lands a gig with a rising German artist Nina Hagen. Nina’s fourth studio album titled “Fearless” putts Schiff in the writers chair, co-writing five songs. What I found interesting is that Flea and Anthony Kiedis (Red Hot Chili Peppers) are credited with the seventh song titled “What it is” on the “fearless” album. Steve tells us how that came to be.
Finally we dive into co writing “Don’t you forget about me” ultimately finalized by Simple minds for the movie “The Breakfast Club”.
Special note: Mr. Schiff has been a great friend over the years. His kindness to come on our (jackass) podcast to chat about his musical journey is nothing less than a delight. Steve is a modest man about his accomplishments and we are so honored to travel down memory lane with him. We truly hope to have him back on.
