Steve Ellis first began singing in a band at the age of 15. The band were called Soul Survivors, initially gate crashing weddings, youth clubs and barmitzva`s in north London on the pretence that they were booked to perform. When the band improved substantially they began to play venues such as The Marquee, The Flamingo, Tiles and Mod clubs in Brighton, Clacton and Soul clubs in Manchester, Stoke etc.
After the bands first release on Decca Records, they moved on to CBS and became one of the most successful British pop acts of the late `60s, under their new name “Love Affair”, and had a string of hit records.
It is no secret and a well known fact in the music industry that Steve was the only member of LOVE AFFAIR to perform on their hit records and he was backed by top session musicians arranged by Keith Mansfield and produced by Mike Smith.
