"He connects to the audience stirring
real emotion, not only from him but from the crowd. His music is
uplifting without being frivolous."

ON TAP MAGAZINE---The Washington, DC metro area's guide to music, entertainment, nightlife and culture. - Connie S. Poole


"Rarely can you find an artist that can write from the heart and then back it up with ample talent on both guitar and piano. With a vocal quality reminiscent of Ed Kowalczyk (lead singer of the band LIVE) and John Mayer, Steven Archdeacon is no stranger to delivering the goods. On the Debut CD “No Turning Back,” Archdeacon combines smart lyrics, great musicianship, and superb production qualities. I highly recommend checking out this talented new artist. " - Ralph Antignano


"New Yorker Steve Archdeacon (artist name "Archdeacon") brings us 7 songs that tell us his personal stories, hopes and emotions, through soft rock guitar driven grooves, well constructed songwriting, and strong vocals. I very much enjoyed Archdeacon’s album as a testament to his story, and his expression. It’s definitely a strong calling card for him as a songwriter, recording artist, and producer. " - Gilli Moon


Archdeacon seems to already have learned how to captivate the audience, exhibited by him frequently leaving the stage to play guitar within the crowd; most of who were dancing. The band has played in many venues, including a tour in England, but Archdeacon said his gig at the Brickhouse was very special and he hopes to play there again soon. “I appreciate what music has brought in to my life and using my music to raise funds that will help the WWP provide services to American soldiers is the best collaboration I could ever hope for,” he said. - Jane Koropsak

"One local band, ARCHDEACON, lead by Steve Archdeacon of Stony Brook, has a personal quest that will last beyond Veterans Day. ARCHDEACON wanted to show appreciation for the sacrifices made by soldiers like Ian Lennon. To do that, the band played at the Brickhouse Brewery in Patchogue on recent Friday night and held a raffle that garnered $800, all of which was donated to the WWP."

Bio

ARCHDEACON’S new album entitled “No Turning Back” is dedicated to Steve’s (guitar/lead vocals) father who suddenly passed away on Feb. 15, 2008. Music is Steve’s ultimate passion in life and he loves to perform live and connect with people through music.

Inscribed on his college class ring is “Music til I die” as a testament to his dedication to music. Music is all about bringing people together and just enjoying life to the fullest. As Steve says, "As an artist you always strive to become better day by day, year by year. It is a life long journey to constantly improve yourself as a musician and as a person. My goal is to entertain and help people through the medium of music.”

ARCHDEACON has played such venues as The Cavern in England, where the Beatles became famous, to Virgina, Delaware (Dewey Beach Music Conference), N.C, VT, recorded an album in Tennessee, and has had the opportunity to open for such acts as Nine days and Our Lady Peace.
