May 2011

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS:

Recorded all the strings for music composer David Torn for the films "JESUS HENRY CHRIST" starring Michael Sheen and "Everything Must Go" starring Will Ferrell. The Seether album produced by Brendan O'Brien is out in stores this week. Ellie Goulding is rising fast on the US charts. I worked with two icons in music, Cher and Joe Cocker. Look for upcoming releases featuring strings by Stevie on albums by Garbage and Michelle Branch.

October 2010

This year has been an exciting year with lots of variety for me. I've had the pleasure of working with top producers such as Mike Elizondo, Nick Raskulinecz and Matt Serletic. Working with such artists as Avenged Sevenfold, Cher, Joe Cocker and Stone Sour. I was also honored to arrange and record the strings for the AT&T Olympics soundtrack with Puddle of Mudd. The P!nk song I worked on, "Sober" was nominated for a Grammy and Ellie Goulding (UK) and Avenged Sevenfold both debuted at #1. I worked on numerous commercials and movie scores as well.
