At the age of 5, Stephen had two passions; baseball & the desire to play drums. His mom Anna, decided to purchase him a spinet piano instead of the drum set he really wanted. And today, he's grateful to his mom for that decision! By age 6, he learned to play every note of Jerry Lee Lewis' "Great Balls of Fire" and his passion for music grew.
Stephen has released eight contemporary instrumental albums in the New Age genre. In 2008, Stephen's debut album "Vertigo" debuted at #3 on the World New Age Top 100 Chart and his next release, "Follow The Mist" was a 1st round GRAMMY ballot choice for Best New Age Album in 2009. In 2017 his ambient
album "Leaving Terra Firma" was a final ballot choice for the 60th Grammy Awards in the Best New Age Album category. His music has garnished him 6 Telly & Rim Awards. And he received "Best Instrumental Album-Piano" award from Lifestyle Music Awards for his "Follow The Mist" album. Stephen also spent years playing guitar and keyboards in popular cover bands in the Virginia Beach, VA resort area and in other east coast clubs, which garnered him valuable musical experience.
