I get real satisfaction from collaborating with a wide range of lyricists. The songs that are born from these collaborations come to life in their own unique ways. Youâ€™ll want to collaborate with me after youâ€™ve listened to my songs:
- Published composer for childrenâ€™s musicals, cabaret, podcasts, stage, television, film and more
- Writes with a dramatic flair and a strong gift for melody in a multitude of styles.
- Successful collaborator with many different lyricists including:
Andrew Zachary Cohen
Award winning actress Ruth Williamson
Award winning writer Peter Brash
“Steven never ceases to amaze me with his versatility. He’s created two original compositions/recordings for my storytelling podcast RISK. Both songs are under a minute long, but manage to create whole story-worlds of their own. One is a full-throated, fully-orchestrated song about spiritual conversion that has real driving force while managing to get in a few great wisecracks. The other is a sort of Tarantella I believe, with mandolins and old world atmosphere. Both are gorgeous duets recorded with remarkable singers. Steven is a wonder-worker!

“Steven Silverstein is a wonderful collaborator. I hadn’t written a song lyric since I was in the BMI Workshop in 1980. Lyric writing has never been easy for me (probably why I gave it up almost 30 years ago), but Steven took me by the hand and led me back into that dark, labyrinthine lyric-writing tunnel. Thank God, he brought a very bright torch with him or I never would have found my way! Not only is he a gifted composer, he’s a gift to a lyricist. He has unerring musical instinct, a true ear for melody, and the way he scores patter — he can really land a joke! (He’s also a brilliant accompanist. Attention performers — you’re in very good hands with Steven.) I just wish I could write lyrics as fast and flawlessly as he writes music. Bravo, Steven!” â€” Peter Brash
