Ethan Taylor Stephenson is a singer/songwriter in the Americana/Roots tradition, bringing his own blend of traditional picking and songwriting to live audiences around Southern Illinois, where he currently resides. Primarily a one-man act, when not performing with his band the Ethan Stephenson Band, Ethan blends harmonica and acoustic guitar in a style reminiscent of folk musicians of the mid-twentieth century. He is influenced by the folk revival of the 60’s as well as the rise in the Indie music culture and the American roots movement of recent years.
From the age of thirteen, when he received his first guitar, to the present (he is now 26), Ethan has been performing and writing songs; his original catalogue now includes some forty originals. Though he doesn’t play all of these originals today — many of which appear on his first studio album ‘Crossing the Bridge’ recorded at BlueStream
