Steve Kipner

Steve Kipner (born 1950) is a U.S.-born Australian songwriter, producer, and former singer with a career in music that dates back to the mid-1960s. He first emerged as the namesake frontman of the antipodean beat combo Steve & the Board. In the early 1970s, he made headway in the Northern Hemisphere with the pop trio Tin Tin. Passing through a succession of bands (Friends, Skyband, Bandana) he moved to Los Angeles and released the album Knock the Walls Down on Elektra in 1979.

Kipner’s big break came when Olivia Newton-John recorded his co-composition “Physical,” a global smash during the winter of 1981/82. In 1984, his co-authored “Hard Habit to Break” became a huge hit for Chicago.
