Steve Koplin

Steve is a Utah native with dreams of the Big Apple! Ever since he was a child Steve was out to entertain. He grew up loving the arts - singing, dancing, and acting. He was in many stage plays and musicals growing up and was a founding member of a boy band called Frequency back in 2000-2003. It was that experience that has driven him to continually find professional performing outlets. 

Since then, Steve and his good friend from Frequency, Mckay Crockett started an a cappella summer camp for kids called ReMix Vocal Academy. ReMix was a huge success it's first year and has since become an official summer camp at BYU while continuously growing each year.

After the initial success of ReMix, Steve had an intense desire to start his own a cappella group at UVU. He found out that there was another student on campus that had the same desire. Steve met Josh Olsen and together they talked about what their ideas for a group on campus would be. The two shared the same vision and hopes for a group and they decided to team up together to create VoiceLine. With the help of Faculty Advisor and Vocal Director, Connie Jensen, the rest is, as they say, history.

Steve is passionate about all things artistic and entertaining. He's currently attending UVU studying Commercial Music. Steve is a freelance audio / video professional and has done work all over Utah. One of his favorite jobs was working on the red carpets of the Sundance Film Festival a couple years ago.

Steve is incredibly proud to be a member and director of VoiceLine and is excited to see what the future has in store for the group!
