His father, Jeffrey, led a swing music band and his mother, Irene, was the singer. He first studied the piano, but took up the drums at the age of 12.
In the course of his career, dating back to the early 1970s and including numerous appearances as a sessions musician, he performed and recorded with Paul McCartney, Elton John, Kiki Dee, G.T. Moore & The Reggae Guitars, Joe Cocker, Ian Hunter, Julian Lennon, Dar Williams, Richard Barone, Ben E. King, and Chuck Berry. In 1978, soon after performing on Elton John's hit single "Ego", a chance meeting in a pub in his hometown of Staines with Denny Laine resulted in him being invited to join Wings. Holley later was a member of Jules Shear's band Reckless Sleepers.
Steve has been touring with Ian Hunter for several years as a member of Ian Hunter's Rant Band.
