About STEVEN CHERA:
Brooklyn born Steven Chera is a modern-day crooner and performer with a vintage style of his own. Chera revels in the music of the Great American Songbook to early rock ‘n roll with a mellow-toned tenor vocal. His supple delivery can gently pull a familiar melody to unfamiliar places.
