Since 1996, Stephen's been making music in churches, schools, and concert halls around the country. He has a passion for music of all genres, but specifically, advancing the organ in today's culture, religious and secular. He has a unique ability to engage audiences by showing off the many colors of the instrument, asking for participation, playing a wide variety of styles, throwing in some standup comedy, and - of course - wearing a lot of bling.
