Steve Langone currently teaches jazz percussion at the University of Rhode Island. A drummer, composer and educator Langone was born in Waltham, Massachusetts and grew up in neighboring Lexington where he was fortunate to study with jazz legend Alan Dawson.

Langone graduated from the Berklee College of Music in 1993 and for the past 20 years has performed throughout the Americas and Europe. His versatility has allowed him to work with many different artists—from straight ahead jazz vocalists Shawnn Moneiro to Latin/Jazz fusion groups such as Enclave and the Jinga Trio, to country singer John Carter Cash to comedians Joe Piscopo and Joan Rivers. He has also recorded soundtracks for National Geographic, Sesame Street and the Miramax film Next Stop Wonderland on the Verve label. His sound can be found on over 50 recordings as a sideman, some include: Nando Michelin (Double-Time Records), Jinga Trio (Fresh Sounds New Talent Recordings), Enclave (Zoho Records), Gilson Schachnik (Candid Records), Kevin Harris (Kevin Harris Project), Shawnn Monteiro (Whaling City Sounds), New Stablemates (Arabesque Recordings), Mili Bermejo (Pentagrama) to name a few. He also has three recordings as a leader Finders Keepers (Whaling City Sounds), Six and Steve Langone Group (CDbaby). Steve endorses Bosphorus Cymbals and Vic Firth Sticks.
