Hello. MY NAME IS stephen.
But you can call me Steve. I started playing guitar when I was about 11 years old— it was something that transformed my life and propelled me on this never-ending musical journey that has been a constant thread throughout my entire life. I’ve played in lots of different local bands, write my own music and have met many great people and musicians along the way. Music for me, though, has never been just about playing guitar. More than anything, it has always been my number one creative outlet and a constant need-to-do-thing… like breathing. I am equal parts creative and technical. I love the creative, musical and soulful side of recording... but also love and am always challenged by the technical. The ultimate goal I strive for in every project is to capture true emotion and great sound.
A great recording always starts first with a great song, arrangement and musicians and I love the challenge of trying to bring out the best in all these things without ever getting in the way. Having amazing recording gear is helpful, but the most important part of any signal chain is the person… and I strive to be that person that musicians/artists want to work with because I can help them be at ease so they can create their music and make the recording process enjoyable. Give me a chance to work with you and I promise I will work hard to make your music and your audio better.
