Steve Overland is a British singer/musician who was the lead vocalist and songwriter for the bands Wildlife, FM, The Ladder, Shadowman, and his own group, Overland. Overland's nearly 30 year career began in his home county of East Anglia, where he and his brother Chris formed the band Wildlife in 1980. The group released the band's debut album, Burning, in 1980. The band moved labels to the Led Zeppelin owned Swan Song Records for their 1983 self-titled follow up album. The demise of Swan Song in 1983, meant that the Wildlife album was under promoted, with an American release for the album being cancelled and the band split up soon after.
Overland next formed the AOR band FM, along with former Wildlife members Pete Jupp and Chris Overland
Overland has recorded prolifically throughout the 2000s (decade), with the bands The Ladder, Shadowman, and latterly, with his solo albums, Break Away (2008) and Diamond Dealer (2009).
