Del Stephen has existed simultaneously as an insider and an outsider in various creative circles. His sound evolves like the fleeting moments following a first kiss.


Much like his consistent offering of recorded albums through the years, Del Stephen’s uplifting and exploratory live sets never cease to inspire his growing audience. Recent performances in Toronto have seen Del Stephen participate in various group-improvisation settings as part of highly regarded music series like Audiopollination and Track Could Bend. In addition to performing, Del Stephen continues to record, archive and preserve the sounds of other artists, neighbourhoods and day-to-day events as part of an ongoing project in cassette-tape archiving. Del remains an active member of the Niagara-based experimental group Think Of A Name and was recognized by Weird Canada on its “Choice Grips” list in 2016.
