AFS Music is the brain-child of multi-instrumentalist and professional Sound Engineer; Steve Yorke.

Music has always played a major part in my life. At the age of 9, I was introduced to the cornet. Being classically trained in performance and theory to grade 8, I soon joined the local brass band where I can still be found some 30 years later, proudly holding the seat of Principle.

At the age of 16, I bought my first keyboard and quickly taught myself how to play (with the aid of a few Jean-Michel Jarre albums). It was at this time I was given the opportunity to arrange my first piece for brass band; 'Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini' (not in publication). The success of this arrangement prompted me to continue this highly skilled art to this day.

It was also thanks to the purchase of this first keyboard that I discovered a talent for composition; often in a more orchestral style, but with electronic undertones. I have recently invested in some Synthesisers for the first time, introducing a whole new sound.

Always thirsty for more, I went on to teach myself guitar and saxophone, as well as most recently; taking a course of drumming lessons.

I did spend several years pursuing the dream of being a rock n roll star and have been a member of many bands over the years, showing off my full array of skills playing keyboards, blowing the trumpet and howling out vocals. Although I had some limited success in the late nineties with 'My Best Shirt'; this would never come to fruition.

In my working life, I found myself climbing the corporate ladder into management. After being made redundant for the 3rd time, I realised that this could be my last chance to pursue a career in the Music Industry and looked to the SAE Institute in Oxford to train me in the art of Sound Engineering. It is with these new found skills and knowledge banks in both analogue and digital domains; my newly acquired range of professional equipment and a deep rooted desire to work with Music, that I now move into a new era; AFS Music is born.
