Artist Bio:SOUND is an adventurous talent. His 90s R&B roots, acappella choral training and fascination with connecting us all, are all presented through his music with a harmonic groove that soothes. Born in Baltimore, MD and raised in the low-country of South Carolina and suburbs of Northern Virginia, Stefon brought his sound and lyrics to Brooklyn, New York in 2013. Self-Producing “A Sound Project: The Covers” in 2013 as a one-man acappella group, Stefon began to make his rounds to the local open mics on a weekly basis, honing his performance presence and landing various artist spotlights. It was at these open mics, that Stefon got involved with the local spoken word artists and poets. This was an element he desired to hear intertwined throughout his own compositions.
He spent the next 4 years continuing to perform throughout New York City and Philadelphia, PA, including an annual summer, Sunset on the Hudson, pier gig where he is accompanied with acoustic guitar, in front of an audience of 200 people for 4 nights. During this time, he also began to work with writer Jayson Youngblood, performing for his R&B Night showcase and starring in the music video for his song “Help Me”, garnishing over 4,000 video views on his facebook page.
Stefon released his first EP, entitled “Appreciated” on June 9, 2017. The EP is a brief presentation of the commitment and love that one should embody in order to rise to the occasion of a relationship with good intentions. The sound and tone is upbeat and ballad. Celebratory and thoughtful. He hopes that when you hear it, you have fun and are reminded to show appreciation for the special ones in your life. (source:stefonsimmons.me)
