“MACHINE - Number 7 CD February 2008 Crave Underground >>Noted guitar shredder Machine (aka Steve Ricardo) has at long last released the first of two new instrumental guitar records. Number 7 displays just how versatile in styles he is capable of playing, from all-out wizardry comparable to Satriani and Vai to the classical flamenco style he first cut his teeth on at age 12 back home in Madrid, Spain. These twelve songs pretty much cover the whole range of genres- that is the many bands he has worked with like Messia, Cornucopia, Wreckin Crew (opened for Skid Row, LA Guns), Valhalla, and this year he is working in Jakkarta with Biff Naked. He even hung out with Zakk Wylde in Vancouver where he picked up some "pointers". Machine is the project that he calls his own and he plays all of the instruments on the cd, Machine knows no bounds as far as musical creativity, and one song in particular, Sticky Thumb, If you are a guitar fan, then this cd is definitely worth a listen”

For the past 10 years, I've refined my technique and musicianship while taking it upon myself to perfect the canon of musical availability that all of the guitar masters before me have successfully confronted. The result of my labors is a string of successful performances, along with audience and Media acclaim.
Performing, composing, arranging, recording, producing, Videography.
Mine are the eyes of a composer, too.
Don't think that I'm confined to just performing. Oh, no. I have been formally studying composition for the past ten years... to this I have written and recorded several Metal albums and Instrumental compositions. I am always available for writting session.
Born in Madrid SPAIN, Steve “MACHINE” Ricardo has been playing guitar since the age of 11.
Inspired by his Flamenco playing Grandmother, who in her youth was a guitarist and fellow school mate and friend of Andre Segovia in Spain, aggressively pushing him to play more as he had such talent in his fingers or as they say in Spain ”Dedos De Musica”
In 1990 he joined “MESSIA”. The move started his journey that took him through the 90’s on a roller coaster ride of a lifetime of memories & tours across the planet, until the untimely death of their singer.
The result that followed “MESSIA’s demise was the birth of “CORNUCOPIA” Machine’s 1st band formed in 1995. Recording 4 albums and 3 US tours with such acts as Death Angel, Prong, 36 Crazy Fists and more. Cornucopia disbanded in 2004.
2017 finds new doors, new experiences for him to challenge.
