A Steve Seskin concert will have you wiping away a tear one minute and laughing out loud the next. He is an accomplished performer, producer and recording artist who has made 19 albums since 1975 - his latest being "Two Paper Town."
Steve has written seven number one songs that have been featured on albums selling over 40 million copies. The Grammy-nominated “Grown Men Don’t Cry” was recorded by Tim McGraw, and “Don’t Laugh at Me,” recorded by Mark Wills, was winner of both the NSAI and Music Row Magazine’s Song of the Year contest.
“Don’t Laugh at Me” inspired Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul and Mary) to start a national awareness campaign designed to help schools teach compassion by focusing on the message of this song, and also by working with students to write their own songs (see Operation Respect for more details).
