Between The Night Siren and At The Edge Of Light Steve has also released the live-album Wuthering Nights: Live In Birmingham and the boxset Broken Skies - Outspread Wings.

His new album is once again a rockalbum and Steve himself describes it like this:

"In these dangerous times, deep shadows feel even sharper than usual and we find ourselves standing at the edge of light... The contrast between dark and light weaves its way throughout the album in many ways, from the sense of good fighting evil through to the interplay of dark and light opposites magically combining in cultures, including the heartbeat of India and primal tribal rhythms. Ultimately, this album embraces the need for all musical forms and cultures to connect and celebrate the wonder of unity in this divided world"
