Steve Marker (b. March 16, 1959) is an American musician and record producer, best known internationally as the guitarist of the Madison, Wisconsin-based alternative rock band Garbage.[1]

Marker co-founded Madison's Smart Studios with Butch Vig in the 1984, and maintained a production career engineering and mixing records until he formed Garbage with Vig and Duke Erikson in 1994. He famously spotted Angelfish singer Shirley Manson's music video on MTV, which led to her joining the group. Since Garbage took hiatus in 2005, Marker has relocated to Carbondale, Colorado.[2]

He is from Mamaroneck, New York, is married, and has a daughter named Ruby (born March 2000).
