Before joining Marillion, Steve Hogarth was keyboard player and co-vocalist for the Europeans from 1981 to 1984, releasing the albums Vocabulary, Europeans Live, and Recurring Dreams.
After limited success in Europe and a radio hit (The Animal Song) in the US with the Europeans, Steve left the band with guitarist Colin Woore to record under the name How We Live, releasing one album, Dry Land (the title track of which was subsequently covered by Marillion on Holidays in Eden) in 1987.
In 1997 Steve recorded his first solo album outside Marillion. Ice Cream Genius was released under the band name "h" in Europe, and later in the US simply as "Steve Hogarth."
After touring with the all-star "h Band" from 2000-2003 h released a double live album "Live Spirit Live Body".
The start of 2006 saw Steve embark on his ongoing "h Natural" project - a series of intimate shows featuring just h and a piano playing songs from his entire career, and songs by other artists who have influenced him over the years.
