Steve Moretti

Drummer/percussionist/producer Steve Moretti is a two time Grammy® Award nominee and winner of two Telly Awards.

Frequently engaged for symphonic drum set performances, Steve’s recent and upcoming appearances include concerts with the symphony orchestras of Florida, Edmonton, Long Beach, Macon, Omaha and appearances at Banff, Rome (Italy), Seattle and Samoana (Samoa) Music Festivals.  Steve is co-founder, President & CEO for Macon Pops, an innovative pops orchestra he created in his hometown of Macon, GA with his long-time collaborator, conductor/performer/arranger Matt Catingub. 

Another facet of Steve’s career is his production company, Morettiman Music. His widerange of projects include producing the music for the nationally televised PBS special “A Grand Mercer Christmas” and for the recordings of pop singer Bailey Coates, Joshua Neal, Hip-Hop artist Floco Torres, soprano Leah Partridge, violinist Amy Schwartz Moretti, and two CityMusic Cleveland recordings, one with cellist Matt Haimovitz, Daniel Rachev conducting, and the second, an all-Mozart live concert, Joel Smirnoff conducting.

Steve finished serving his third term as a Board of Governors for the Atlanta Chapter of the (Grammy®) Recording Academy.
