Stephen's Story

Stephen is a "contemporary classical" artist who began playing by ear at the age of 5.  A son of a Lutheran Pastor in Hibbing, Minnesota, Stephen began taking advanced piano instruction from a Julliard trained teacher at age 9.

In 1986, Stephen began composing and recording his own music with two Minneapolis music producers and eventually released his first album in 1997.

Stephen's original piano music can be described as reflections of what touches him in his life.  Emotionally calming melodies that can reconnect one with their life's purpose is his goal.
