Steve Freund (born July 20, 1952, Brooklyn, New York City, New York) is an American blues guitarist, singer, bandleader and record producer. Although Freund has toured throughout the United States (including stops in New York and Chicago), he is presently based in the San Francisco Bay Area where he is best known.
His mother (who played classical piano) initially inspired Freund. In 1976, Freund moved to Chicago and began to play regularly with Sunnyland Slim, which then led to concerts playing alongside such notables as Hubert Sumlin, Big Walter Horton, Pinetop Perkins, Paul Butterfield, Luther Allison, Koko Taylor and Little Charlie & the Nightcats.
He appeared at the San Francisco Blues Festival in 2005, the Chicago Blues Festival in 2007, and many other major festivals worldwide.
