Unlike many other musicians, Steve was nowhere as confident when he started his career. Self-proclaimed weak-singer it was only later that Steve contributed significantly to his band. Although he composed the music, he only decided to sing because he felt that others voice didn’t complement his music. Porcaro composed the music for the song "Human Nature" and produced the synthesizer for "The Girl Is Mine" from Michael Jackson's album Thriller.

Steve has composed music for Human Mind and also contributed in Michael Jackson’s The Girl is Mine for the album Thriller. Similarly, he has also composed music for the series Justified. For this Steve was nominated from Online Television and Film Association.

In 2016 Steve released his first single Someday/Somehow containing 13 songs which became an unexpected hit.

In his time in the band, they enjoy vast popularity and fame, especially from their album Toto (1978), Isolation (1984), Fahrenheit (1986), etc. Their song Rosanna (1982) from their album Toto IV (1982) is a certified Gold hit and still considered a classic. The song was second in Billboard Hot 100 for 5 consecutive weeks.

 

Being involved in the band since the late seventies, he left the band in 1986 to pursue the full-time songwriting career. He, however, did help his band in various backstage music and preparations.

Born to the Jazz drummer and Percussionist Steve was introduced to music at an early age. Being the youngest of the three brothers, he got to learn much from his brothers.
