Barron, a classically trained singer, grew up in Santa Monica, California, amidst the influences of his opera‐singing mother and family
friends such as Sammy Davis Jr. and Frank Sinatra. His family was intimately connected to the heavyweights of the era. Barron’s
godfather, Barron Hilton, got Sinatra to perform at JFK’s Democratic Convention in Beverly Hills. Barron’s father, Geary Steffen, was
married to Jane Powell who danced and sang in some of MGM’s top musicals such as Royal Wedding with Fred Astaire.
Barron’s own music career began in Italy, where his hit single “It’s Not Really Over” reached number 17 on the billboard charts. Back
in the U.S., Barron’s band was recognized as one of L.A.’s top 10 unsigned. Barron’s Big Band returned him to his roots in the American
standards, quickly establishing him as a top tier player with repeat performances at the Governor’s Ball of New Mexico, The Four
Seasons Hotel, and frequent multi‐national corporate events.
Vibrant, engaging performances feature the music of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Michael Buble, Nat King Cole, and Harry Connick, Jr.,
to name just a few. Check out his bold interpretation of a song like “Mack the Knife,” or the delight and humor of “That’s Amore”. It
translates. His voice is in another league.
