L.A. based artist Stephen has repeatedly displayed his genre-defying sound as he’s successfully blurred the lines between indie styled live music and electronic elements. He’s branded his unique style with attention grabbing tracks including his latest collaboration alongside Pell on “In The Morning,” his hit single “Crossfire,” which has racked up over 2 million plays, as well as an electro-rock cover of Adele’s “Hello.”
This talented singer / songwriter produces his tracks in their entirety as he skillfully plays every instrument on while laying down passionate vocals. The gloomy track “Sincerely” starts slow with somber vocals atop a keyboard instrumental that builds with soft percussion and crosses over into the electronic realm with several gentle future bass breakdowns and bass undertones that stay present throughout as he even brings in hip hop elements offering a sung/rapped verse.
He seems to grow as an artist with every release as his catchy, emotional vocals lay the bridge for his indie instrumentation to combine with slightly glitchy production while seamlessly weaving in live instrumentation like a guitar solo. Along with Stephen’s recent releases, “Sincerely” appears on Halfway House Records. You have the opportunity to see this one man band on his current tour dates below after the jump. Enjoy!
