Bio

Stefano, a 21-year-old singer/songwriter from San Antonio, Texas, has been singing and making music since sounds could come from his mouth. At the age of 4 he was given his first tape recorder and microphone and began recording himself singing Michael Jackson songs, even though he was legally deaf. As a child of the early 90s, he was given a walkman and a large collection of cassette tapes featuring the likes of Jewel, Journey, Alanis Morissette, and Hootie and the Blowfish. It was this collection that sparked his love for music even though he couldn’t actually hear the lyrics. Two years later he had his first ear surgery, and on the way home from the hospital, he heard Alanis Morissette's “You Oughta Know” on the radio and, for the first time, he could hear and understand the words. When he was 9, he was given his first piano and was automatically absorbed in music.

At twelve years old he started composing piano pieces and then began writing and recording songs with lyrics based on his poetry. This quenched his thirst for making music, but he wasn’t satisfied for long. One day, when he was a senior in high school, he picked up guitar and decided to learn how to play.

While studying neurobiology at The University of Texas at Austin, Stefano played his first “real” show during the fall of his freshman year of college. He soon realized that music never be “just a hobby” in his life and (at the suggestion of his parents) he recorded a few of his own songs on recording equipment he had purchased for fun years before. The following year, after having decided for good that music was the road he was meant to take, he completed his first demo in June 2009.

Since the break that followed his first show in the fall of 2007, he has been performing his music anywhere people will listen in the Lone Star State. He will record his first EP in May 2010 at Tree Sounds Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, and will release his first radio single in the Summer.
At twelve years old he started composing piano pieces and then began writing and recording songs with lyrics based on his poetry featured in his middle school's yearly student-run writing magazine. Though his friends and family were blown away by his musical talents, he first pursued theater arts before coming to realize his true calling in music.

Stefano has won many talent shows at the local, state, and national levels singing classical and contemporary songs and has competed in regional and state Solo and Ensemble contests at which he received “superior” scores―the highest honor given to classical soloists. He also competed in the Texas Music Educators Association All-State choir process for three years in highschool, making the region choir, the Men's All-State choir, and then the All-State Mixed Choir as a second-chair Tenor I. When he was a senior in high school, he picked up guitar one day and decided to learn how to play.

On the Strip, The Cove (bar and restaurant featured on the Food Network), Beauty Bar in Austin, coffee shops such as Community Blend and La Taza, and private parties and charity events including the 2009 Helping Our Little Angels (HOLA) fundraiser at the University of Texas at San Antonio.
