My name is Stephen. I have played in bands since the mid eighties. The drums for most of those years. In 2004 I bought two guitars and began to write and record on an eight track. This is my first CD and it is the one I am most proud of. These songs are about the twenty plus years that landed me in a prison cell, and the things that set me free. Thank you for reading this and taking an interest in my music. Bootleg Magazine had these kind things to say about these songs. 'The CD is magnificent, a collage of musical styles and, I would learn later on, a hard look into his own life. It is so thick musically, so strong thematically, I did'nt think I could tell the reader what I heard, and how beautifully varied the album is. It is a collection of music you could listen to and craft a novel at the same time. Moving along like a soundtrack to something heart wrenching and hopeful at the same time. It offers musical shades of Pink Floyd, Nine Inch Nails and Roky Erickson. It is acoustic and bombastic, the production spare and elegant, a Mercator Projection of music.' Thank you O Stephen.
