Steven is a prolific composer and has been writing songs since 1992.
The band has never had a permanent line-up - though it has had several long-serving members, notably Ken Senior of the band Evolution on vocals.
ES is a studio-based project, then, and has latterly worked with talented musicians from all over the world in order to breathe extra life into the songs.
The latest album "The Ghost of a Smile" continues that focus with musicians from France, USA, Venezuela and Italy providing bass, drums, trumpet, violin and flute on which to hang the bands trademark melodic acumen.
Not a concept album as such – though the songs are thematically linked – and all deal with magic, mystery and the unexplained. It’s a very moody album with lots of interesting twists and turns. This is probably our most musically adventurous album, blending progressive rock, hard rock, folk, orchestral and new age into a melting pot of melody.
