For his own music, Fister gets back to basics. He has stated that, “Melody and song content is priority one, but at all times I try to keep the drama and excitement levels high." Rhythm tends to play a large role in his albums, but he also focuses on both melody and emotion. Fister explains, “It is very important to retain a live but refined dynamic feel in the studio. Rather than over producing the guitar parts, I try to keep an open honesty, letting the feel of the song dictate my approach."
Steve Fister blends the guitar wizardry of Jeff Beck with a bluesy 70's hard rock vibe, punctuated with the melodic sense of The Beatles. (Nightwatcher’s House of Rock”)
“Guitar ace Steve Fister joins the ranks of today’s rising guitar superstars, and offers undeniable proof of his stature as a masterful solo artist”. (Robert Silverstein in 21st Century Guitar)
