Tributes are pouring in via social media, after a post published last night on Facebook, by Elmore Warren of Fresh TV, who wrote: “Fresh Remembers Steve Easton Friday Jan. 19th. Amen”.

The post prompted an outpouring of condolences and tributes expressed on behalf of the countless lives touched by the late Steven Easton.

Tributes by residents who wrote: “Condolences to your family and to all of us in this music industry. Your presence and contribution will always be remembered.”

Another post stated: “… Such a wonderful person… industrious, kind, helpful, professional… and oh so humble… an overachiever in so many ways…”

Countless musicians and vocalists who worked with ‘Steve’ in studio over the years expressed the impact of word of his passing.

One man wrote: “A true gentleman, going to miss our late ‘night talks about about the industry. Deepest condolences to the family.

And another one of his many friends wrote: “Beyond himself, his voice will be missed.

Steve Easton stepped out on his own decades ago, to become one of Bermuda’s best in-studio producers, long before entrepreneurship became a buzz word in Bermuda.

And he worked hard from the outset to become well known both locally and internationally, for his for his many classic in-studio productions, in music and with professional vocal skills.

Over the years he has worked with and recorded countless well known artists and many other up and coming artists as well.

And in the local church community, Mr Easton was also a long time member of the Bermuda Conference of Seventh Day Adventists, where he is also known for his role in choir and concert productions spanning many years.

He is survived by his wife Shevy Easton and daughters, and numerous relatives and friends.

Funeral arrangements are pending.

On behalf of Bermuda Real we express our sincere condolences to his family and the whole family of friends and colleagues whose lives will be forever touched by this MAN! What a beautiful SOUL!” RIP…
