Growing up with Gospel roots, Stephen has been performing publicly for over 15 years, heavily influenced by Stevie Wonder and the R&B music of Motown. Also Inspired by Jim Croce, John Legend, and of course The Beatles.

Performing in local venues in Chicago, St. Louis, and Kansas City, brought a new level of appreciation and connection with music, and connecting with an audience. 

Fast forward, playing in the local music scene of Chicago brought a sense of community and awareness of the eclectic range of styles performed in the city. 

After playing at many different levels, a speakeasy residency in Woodstock IL, Redhead Piano Bar, and Drew’s On Halsted, Stephen is ready and excited about every new venue.

Stephen brings the passion, and emotion to each performance, and is always digging deep, to leave the audience with a bit of music they can take back home with them.
