Stream Stephen’s new single ‘My Everyday’ below.

 

Who are you and what are you doing here??

having fun and releasing music along the way.
When did you know you wanted to pursue music as a career? 
I really didn’t know until about a year ago and playing an open mic and getting a response I wasn’t expecting. Started recording and playing more after that

 

How would you describe your music?

Fairly emotive and soul based. Always try to write from a personal level.
If you had to choose one song you’ve written that best defines your sound which one would it be? 
That’s hard as I guess been jumping around style wise. “Almost home” was my main acoustic style, but my new single is more “electro” and a lot louder.
In this day and age where anyone is pretty much able to pick up an instrument, what would you say sets you apart from the rest?

probably original song ideas and themes. there’s a lot of great music out there but sometimes people don’t have much original to say. Most of my favourite song writers are extremely strong lyrically.
Where are people able to hear your songs? 
iTunes, soundcloud, Spotify

 

Are you playing any shows anytime soon? 

Yep.  Playing locally in Perth soon with an east coast event in planning. Best to check facebook for details.
What is your proudest moment/greatest achievement as a musician? 

being played on the radio is awesome.
Tell us 3 bands that we should be listening to/be keeping an eye out for?

Locally in Perth I’d say Anna-O, roots act Matt Gresham, and Della-Fern.
Anything Else you’d like to add? 

Thanks for having me.
