Steve Homan, born August 23, 1981, better known by his producer name Statx (pronounced Stat-icks), is an American independent recording artist, record producer and multi-instrumentalist from Austin, Texas. He is the founder and owner of the Statx Entertainment record label. The pseudonym “Statx” is a combination of “St” from Steve and “atx”, which is an abbreviation for Austin, Texas.
Steve was encouraged to play music at an early age. His mother would take him to various shows and music festivals in Austin, which had a big impact on his early musical taste. He started playing percussion for the school band in the 6th grade and pieced his first drum set together throughout his junior high years. He continued playing percussion for the school band into high school and was a drummer in several garage rock bands throughout junior high and high school. It was around this time that he developed an interest in other genres, such as heavy metal, funk, reggae, jazz, soul, and hip-hop. All of these genres would later play a role in his unique production style.
Shortly after high school, Steve started making beats and composing various song ideas using a small MIDI keyboard and a computer with a single microphone input. It was during this time that he started learning music recording and production, but it wasn’t until 10 years and several bands later that he founded his own label, Statx Entertainment, as an outlet for all of the music that he had been recording.
Along with founding his label, Steve started seeking local artists to collaborate with and began working out of his home studio.
