Steven "Stu" Allegretto was born in upstate New York and moved to the Virginia area when he was nine years old. He fell in love with the sounds of early 90's R&B and Hip-Hop and knew then that he wanted to pursue music as a career. Steven began writing songs at the age of 13 and made the transition to producing music shortly thereafter. The desire to make quality recordings soon sparked his interest as well, so he attended Full Sail University's Recording Arts Program and finished with his Associates Degree in Recording.
Steven is now Chief Engineer at Music Theory Studios, and Lead Audio Tech at Sandler Center for the Performing Arts, both located in Virginia Beach. Steven is also one of the instructors for Music Theory Studios' Audio Engineer Course, helping students to learn the fundamentals as well as advanced techniques to further enhance their skills in the audio industry.
