Biography

Stephen Reso began his musical career in his early teens in Thibodaux, LA his hometown just shy of an hours drive Southwest of New Orleans. Performing in local clubs as a keyboardist/guitarist in various cover bands, Stephen soon began writing his own material having been heavily influenced by song-driven pop/rock bands like the The Beatles, Cheap Trick, The Producers and The Replacements.

The band’s popularity grew rather quickly in their new surroundings and soon they were recording their first record, “Shoot For The Sky” which was produced by Jeff Murphy of THE SHOES. The CD was released in 1993 and many of the songs soon found there way onto TV shows such as MTV’s The Real World (Miami) and CBS’s Guiding Light as well as many compilations like THE BAM BALAM EXPLOSION VOL. IV – USA Power Pop Compilation. On YELLOW PILLS Volume 2 – More Of The Best Of American Pop the band was featured along side such notable artists as Material Issue, the Posies and Matthew Sweet.

The band disbanded in 1996 and Stephen went solo. After a deal with one label fell through, his manager sent a demo tape to Indian at Gig Records who signed Stephen to his record label.
