About Steven Schick

Steve Schick is a percussionist and the product of an Iowa farming family. He began his percussion studies at the University of Iowa, but earned his diploma from the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik in Freiburg. From 1992 to 2002, Schick served as percussionist in the Bang On a Can All-Stars, based in New York, and has led his own group, Red Fish Blue Fish, since 1997. Both as a soloist, and with his group and group affiliations, Schick has recorded for CRI, GM, Sony Classical, Music and Arts, Point Music, Neuma, Cantaloupe, Tzadik, Koch, Innova, NMC, New World, and OO Discs, but most frequently, and some would argue most profitably, with Mode. Schick is also a professor of percussion at the University of California at San Diego; in 2006, he published a book, The Percussionist's Art: Same Bed, Different Dreams.
