Kind Words:


“Bro. Stephen is a traveler.  A musical Jack Kerouac, moving from town to town across America, letting the experiences and landscapes sink into his being, eventually allowing them to flow out in the form of his gentle, yet powerful music.” –We Listen For You

“Brother Stephen delivers the goods, showcasing a pastoral sound informed by Nick Drake, Bedhead’s sparse and slow-burning acoustic offerings, the introspective vibe of Sparklehorse, and a touch of good Fairport Convention, transmitting the sort of vibe of an artist who came of age with punk, but realized the acoustic axe coupled with sonic space could be a more devastating divining rod. Fans of Hush Arbors,Vetiver, and The Skygreen Leopards would do well to take notice.” – The Decibel Tolls
