Stephan Earl – Origins

Somewhere between the atmospheric soundscapes of New Age, the hypnotic grooves of Chill, and the harmonic textures of Jazz, flows the music of Stephan Earl. His melodic focus is reminiscent of Classical composers with a unique and modern edge, while his rhythms and grooves paint with a distinctive pallet that is both enchanting and thought provoking.
