As an avid storyteller and wordsmith, Steve McAllister crafts musical compositions that reach to the heart of listeners and the challenges and celebrations they experience. Often compared to artists like Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Willie Nelson, Bruce Springsteen, and James Taylor, Steve McAllister has a style all his own. His past endeavors as a renaissance man – as an actor, activist, author, poet, talk show host, and all-around lifestyle stuntman – infuse his work with vision and humor, evident in his most recent book, Cowboy Up: The Poetry Of The Cowboy Cabaret.
After travelling the country in search for alternatives to consumerism and writing The Rucksack Letters, getting abducted by aliens in How To Survive An Estralarian Mind Meld, and challenging himself to live for a year without the use of money and writing his ensuing book, Money, Sex, Power & Faith, Steve considers himself an amateur economist and outside-the-box entrepreneur. As the sole citizen and Goodwill Ambassador of the Autonomous Nation of Stevetopia, his hope for the future is to use his music and other services and artistic endeavors as a launching pad for a more democratic and networked economic system he calls ABC Squared Economics, which empowers the Artistry of life, the Business of service, the engagement of Citizenry, and the participation in Community. He also recently released The What If Journal with Martha Robinson as a means of cultivating creativity and innovation.
