"One of the most talented record people I've ever worked with."
"Steve is a one-of-a-kind music and entertainment professional with a deep network of industry relationships and keen eye for spotting new trends and opportunities first. Steve's relationships, industry and otherwise, exist not only because of his unique skills in the professional and musical spheres, but also because he is an all around great person. Whatever he is working on is likely to be the next big thing, because otherwise, neither Steve, nor anyone he is working with, would be doing it. Passion, vision and collaboration are all things that can be expected if you're lucky enough to be working with Steve."
"Steve Tramposch has been a long-time music industry ‘compadre’ of mine. Frankly, I don't know many folks that have his deep and broad experience across the entire music ecosystem."
“Not only does Steve have a great ear/eye for talent, but he delivers results for his acts and truly gets the importance and impact of strategic integrated marketing in music.”
Steve assisted with domestic violence awareness while I was executive director of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, a great band Steve managed, worked with NCADV to promote awareness through the song "Face Down". They did events associated with a tour the year it came out, and provided great resources for teens experiencing abuse through that effort. Partners like Steve and Red Jumpsuit Apparatus are rare in the non-profit world, and I really appreciate his vision and support to end violence in the home.
“Steve Tramposch is a brilliant entertainment executive. He was responsible for bringing International artist Che'Nelle to Virgin Records as well as launching the career of Platinum recording act Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. He is an unsung star in the music business with a real track record for success. I can't wait to work with him again.”
“Steve put Flickerstick on a Billboard CD way back when. This directly led to the VH-1 show "Bands On the Run" and then a deal with Epic. Great guy with excellent taste! I certainly owe him one...”
