BEST LOCAL-SCENE JACK-OF-ALL-TRADES: Steve Connelly

Some folks only know Connelly as one of the co-founders of now-reformed Bay area jangle-rock band The Headlights. Some only know him as the proprietor of Zen Recording, a St. Pete studio that consistently turns out above-average production. Others only know him as a member of relatively new act Too Many Subplots, or as an exceedingly talented multi-instrumentalist who has sat in or sessioned with dozens of other acts, or as a singer-songwriter in his own right. But most of the people who have been kicking around the local roots, rock, pop and folk crowds for any length of time know him in all of these roles, and that his contributions to many facets of Bay area music have enhanced the scene for as long as they can remember. Thanks, Steve.
