Stefen has been creating his own unique music for over a decade, never giving a *@#! about what other people want him to sound like. He never sold out, he never got big, and he never went home. Stefen is originally from rural BC, in Western Canada, and grew up on a farm. He bought a guitar when he was 17 and learned by playing blues and rock music in bars. Later he bought a laptop and taught himself to produce.

Besides working on music, Stefen works with Mills Pictures Studios  shooting microbudget films. He and his partner Freda also run a vintage and midcentury furniture sales and refurbishing business, with FINN THE MOUNTAIN DOG, called Full Circle Furniture.
