mission & values

Steve Klenke eMotific Music


The most important thing in my life is my family. Spending time together, having fun, supporting each other and always being there for them. I have family in different cities in the USA and I love to go visit and spend quality time together. They are my world!

Steve Klenke musician at eMotific Music


Music is absolutely my passion! I love to "paint a picture" with my compositions and perform music that makes people feel good, enriched, and uplifted in some way. When collaborating with lyricists, I tend to be drawn to lyrics that have a postive message. I tend to focus on melody more than harmony.
