BIOGRAPHY

Steve O’Connell is a singer, songwriter and actor living in Chicago, IL. The first record he can remember listening to was Simon and Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water. The first record he personally owned was Phil Collins’ No Jacket Required. His music lives somewhere in between The Boxer and Sussudio. He still loves both albums. As an actor, he’s killed himself on Chicago PD, been crushed by a chandelier on Chicago Med and monologued about a government computer system being hacked, in a Lifetime original movie. Steve has also worked extensively in the Chicago theatre scene, earning him three Jeff Award nominations. He is grateful to be a part of the best theatre community in the country and happy to call Chicago home with his wife and two sons.
