Stef began his career, like many before, on the pots and sofa of his parents. At the age of 16 he started his frst band and learned frst self-taught, later with Jim McGillivray, among others, who showed him to look for interesting ways away from rock.

After 4 years with many gigs in Germany and Europe KELLEY WILD released "WILD FAMILY" in 1996.
From the end of the 90's Stef played in other bands and projects. With GROUPIE he released "MINIGOLFEN" in 2000 - some TV appearances (e.g. GIGA TV) followed.
