Steve Dansiger


New York


Silva Screen


Steve Dansiger has been writing, performing and recording since the age of 16. His early performances at CBGB and Max’s Kansas City and other New York City clubs with his band The Responsible Teenagers started what has been a more than 30-year career as a drummer and singer/songwriter.

Steve Dansiger was the drummer for a number of late 70s and early 80s acts such as King Missile, The Nightmares, Roger Manning and Pianosaurus. As the toy drummer for the all toy Pianosaurus, he travelled Europe and Asia, made numerous television appearances, and was featured in several media outlets from People Magazine to NPR’s Morning Edition. Later in the 80s, Steve began to write his own songs again, and his single “The Ballad of John Parker” was voted Best Local Single in 1990. It was released on the Singles Only Label of Bob Mould and Steve Fallon.

His solo album Sensation Days was released on the Akeldama imprint of Silva Screen in 1996. It featured the playing of many top musicians including Jane Scarpantoni (Bruce Springsteen, Lou Reed, Natalie Merchant), Knox Chandler (Souxie and the Banshees, Psychedlic Furs, Cyndi Lauper), Tony Trishka (banjo protégé of Pete Seeger), and several others.

Currently, Steve is the drummer for his wife’s band, Los Angeles local legends Third Grade Teacher. He is in the midst of another round of songwriting. He has become a psychotherapist and runs an addictions treatment center in the Los Angeles area, the ONE80CENTER. Appearing as Dr. Steve, he has appeared on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast more than any other guest, trying to solve Marc’s very serious emotional problems and those of his listeners as well. The podcast has remained at the top of the podcast charts for three years now, approaching about 40 million downloads. Steve is also co-producing a documentary film project.
