"W: Stately Dissonance – J. Stevens"

J Stevens is planning to release an EP later this summer on August 25, called Climate Controlled... a single from this EP called “Stately Dissonance”. It’s a tune that you really can’t help but move to. With the familiar tune of “When the Saints Go Marching In”, wild banjo playing and and raw vocals, J Stevens has wrapped this tune up nicely and tied it with a bow. Enjoyability is 100% guaranteed. - Sound Vat

"J. Stevens' BEST YET!?"

“…he manages to evoke his own campfire style of folk with pretty strings plucking sometimes mellow, sometimes upbeat, always attention-demanding tunage. I dig it. I dig it good.” — Sarah of MUSIC SHE BLOGGED - MUSIC SHE BLOGGED


Folk I Don't Know (2005)

When the World Pulls the Plug (2007)

The Illustrated Natural History of... (2009)

My Best Yet (2011)

Stately Dissonance (single, 2011)



A multi-talented singer-songwriter who pursues rhythm and lyrics, J Stevens has written and published over 30 folk-blues songs within his current 4 CD catalogue. His first, Folk I Don’t Know a solo project in 2005, was fueled with wild guitar-driven adventure stories.  This very honest sound brought J into the Toronto folk circuit and singing on street corners to get his music heard.  Writing from experience of trials and travels his next installment proved to be a much grittier blues collection on When The World Pulls The Plug which he took to the east coast to find influences of bluegrass and folk-punk alike. 

As well as performance, J is involved in the production of recordings from start to finish; organizing his own studio works and promotional company. In 2009 Shoestring Studios released The Illustrated Natural History Of... a testament to his growth as a poet and wandering soul. 
2011 My Best Yet is a retrospective collection of re-mastered favorites and a few demo and unheard live tracks published this spring.

The EP release Climate Controlled is set to hit the road August 25th, 2011 with digital singles available sooner.
