A quote from Stevie: “Music is sound, and sound is ancient, physical vibration. It has been here since before us or our attempt to make words and labels for every manifestation of existence. Sound and Music are engraved in all of our souls and I’m here simply to bring them out, to let my real self shine through. Words can touch your heart and reach a huge audience, so songs are good cases for musical ideas with some poetic expression. But the organic, physical vibration of sound can show people there is more to this life than their language and material goods, there is incredible potential in being a human being. The power to be and not necessarily to do gives us our greatest gift, our consciousness and ability to reason. I hope my music lights people up to be the best they can be, to inspire and spread positive, creative energy. To help people get back in touch with nature, themselves, and all of existence. Physical vibration is no phony human language, but the language of the cosmos and existence.”
