Description

The tracks were played with a re-tuned guitar, to be played with one hand, while Stephen's free hand operated his home made percussion set-up. More apparent on 'This is a Test'(out on Ethbo), with its crashing metal and chimes working as a sort of chorus to his minimal lyrics.

Shortly after, Stephen’s earlier music with his band, The Tree People gained attention among hard core psyche / folk record collectors. Their 1979 private press LP saw a reissue on Guerssen Records, and he also contributed a track to the excellent Numero Group compilation Wayfaring Strangers, in 2008.

On his new self-released album, “Where Do We Go?” only available on LP, he is joined by Yuan-Chen Lee on piano, guqin, and prepared piano, with Maeve Stier on vocals, and his inventions: the 1 String Thing, the miniature guitar and the cigar box guitar. His trademark hushed vocal tones, as always, understate the punch of his lyrics.
