Stefen's self-titled, debut album pays homage to music in its purest and simplest form. Less noise, more heart. Straying from popular production techniques and over-budget effects, he intends for his songs to feel familiar; for the words to matter as much as the music.
Although a native to Oklahoma, his melodies are not what we might expect out of a boy from the South. With lyrics inspired as much by film as they are friendships, each song from the album tells a different story to which anyone can relate - tales of hope, struggle, love, and life. A bonus cover/remix of Death Cab for Cutie's, "I Will Follow You into the Dark" is included as a not-so-subtle nod to the formative and inspiring, Seattle band.
