Carmelo Esteban "Steve" Martin Caro, is an American rock musician who was originally known as Steve Martin. He is best known as the original lead singer of the 1960s baroque pop band The Left Banke. The son of flamenco guitarist/vocalist Sarita Heredia, he added his family surname Caro in the 1980s to avoid confusion with Steve Martin, the comedian-actor of the same name.With The Left Banke, Caro scored chart hits with "Walk Away Renée," "Pretty Ballerina" and "Desiree" in the 1966-68 period. In addition to providing most of the lead vocals on Left Banke recordings, Caro occasionally made instrumental contributions as well, performing guitar and/or drums on various songs. He was also credited for the track "Love Songs in the Night," written and recorded with Banke members. It appears in the Kama Sutra Records soundtrack for the 1972 adult film Hot Parts.The Left Banke reunionThe current touring version of The Left Banke features one original member: George Cameron. On March 18, 2015, it was announced that original vocalist Steve Martin Caro officially rejoined the current touring version of The Left Banke.
