Steve Rice


Home: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA   

Steve Rice is a versatile composer, keyboardist and accordionist based in Philadelphia. He records and writes with several outstanding ensembles including "Rouge" (French Cabaret), "Big Squeezy" (Zydeco), “Troy Kline” (Retro Vegas Lounge), and the Steve Rice Quintet (original Jazz). Steve's interests include Jazz, Classical, World, Traditional Ethnic, and Electronic music, as well SFX. He has a Film Scoring degree from Berklee College of Music, where he received the prestigious Oscar Peterson Award. Steve also tours part-time as pianist for the Harry James Orchestra.


To add authenticity to certain projects, Steve Rice is the go-to guy. The sound of an accordion can add instant cultural recognition and support to your TV, Film, or Documentary production. The quirky accordian has been out of the mainstream long enough that its creative use can add a surprisingly fresh twist to your soundtrack. Exoticism, eerieness, haunting beauty, and cultural reference can be your sonic fabric with the right accordion track.
