Steve Gould (born 25 March 1950 in Battersea, London, UK)[1] was the lead singer and bassist (later, rhythm guitarist) of the 1960s-70s London based progressive rock band Rare Bird. They had one hit single titled "Sympathy" and recorded several albums.

Gould went on to form the mainstream band Runner on Island Records in the late 70s after Rare Bird broke up. The band's debut album charted in the Billboard top 100.

When Runner didn't work out due to differences with the label, Gould joined the Alvin Lee band in 1980, with whom he played bass in different occasions during two decades. In albums like Free Fall (1980) o Rx5 (1981)he plays an active role like vocalist and co-creator.
