Steve Neville Shines on “bitter taste”

Singer-songwriter Steve Neville (formerly of The Balconies) is a cancer survivor and reconnecting Métis musician. He was rushed to hospital emergency in February 2021 after a period of rapidly declining health, diagnosed with leukemia and immediately began treatment. 

Steve shares his experiences of fear, sadness, love, and hope on his debut solo LP, OFF TRACK, produced by Liam Jaeger. His song “bitter taste” captures a dreamy state that oscillates between light and darkness. “I woke here, alone in bed. I couldn’t stand the loneliness so I thought of you instead.” At times of isolation, Steve drew inner strength from imagining his partner, who was a constant resource to regain courage and the drive to beat his illness.
