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, sparkling on stage.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, he recorded a mini-series of concerts called Sacred Sounds, built on Stephen’s lengthy background in sacred music and worship arts and inspired by The Joy of Music television program.
While he doesn't have time to record any more, he still plays weekly at Hayes Barton United Methodist Church in Raleigh and occasionally gives recitals.
