About Steve Lincoln-Smith:
With many years music industry experience, Steve is a leader in the music technology field.
Prior to establishing Innovative Music Australia, Steve was product manager and Hi Tech product specialist with Yamaha Music Australia. During his time at Yamaha Steve was instrumental in the introduction of key hi tech products into the World Market.
Some of these products included DX7, SY77, SY85, and VL-1 to name a few.

Steve started out playing classical piano, but always really wanted to be all of the instruments in the band.
It was Synthesizers with their many wide and varied sounds that have changed his musical direction. Today Steve says he is really a “classical musician with a decided bent towards Rock, Soul, Jazz and Funk”.
Steve has worked with many bands in Australia, some of the more well-known artists include John Farnham, David Hirschfelder, Little River Band, Kids in the Kitchen, Alias Smith and Jones, and jazz artist James Morrison.
At Innovative Music Australia, Steve is not only the Managing Director but also a trained engineer / musician who is equally competent with Synthesizers or computer products on any platform.
