Indie solo act Stephen materialized onto the scene in viral fashion two months ago, thanks to his future bass-infused original, "Remembering Myself." The record, carefully guided by manager Jake Udell -- who also handles enigmatic artist ZHU -- brought the multi-talented singer into the spotlight once again under his re-branded title.

His new project exquisitely highlights his singing and songwriting skills, along with his production chops that he primarily utilized under his previous moniker, Stephen Swartz.

Stephen’s latest release is a take on Adele’s chart-topping single, “Hello,” and although the powerful ballad has already seen an influx of covers, his rock interpretation leaves a revitalizing tang that justifies the saturation. The visual supplement to his cover can be viewed here.
