"It's easy to label multi-instrumentalist and electronic artist Stèv as a musical prodigy, but to do so only takes away from the tedious work and devotion put into his debut full-length effort on Loci and Megaphone Records. Beyond Stolen Notes is the final product of a craftsman who hooked inspiration from both his musical influences and demographic surroundings. Beginning the framework for the album in Berlin and further pushing its boundaries from his hometown in Ancona, (real name) Stefano Fagnani composes the soundtrack to significant moments in his life that better shaped his understanding and world view." – Earmilk

New single premiere: "Urbinian"

HERE WE GO!!! - part.2

Today is available the streaming of the second tune off my forthcoming album, named “Urbinian”, through Indie Shuffle!
You'll find it here: http://www.indieshuffle.com/stev-urbinian/

"With a bouncy-super-feel-good vibe and a side of a chill, Stèv manages to take a bunch of different sounds and meld them together until you can't find where the electronic in the track ends and the organic begins. He does all this while leaving the listener with an excellent warm weather track, one that just seems like it would coincide perfectly with an ice cold cocktail while sitting around the pool." – Indie Shuffle

This tune is inspired and dedicated to all my friends of Urbino, a small place where I lived for a while, years ago. I used to study at the Fine Art Academy there, but decided to leave to completely dedicate myself to music. Luckly, during the time I spent living there, I found some of the most important people of my life and, due to the city is located near to my hometown, I kept going there to meet them and I have only beautiful and emotional things to remember: a true friendship which crosses the distances and leads us going through several kilometers just to stay together. A stunning place, with stunning people! I’ll keep forever theese memories with me! Straight from my heart, through my art, this piece is for each one of you!

New album announcement and single preview!

HERE WE GO!!!

Here’s the link: http://www.thefourohfive.com/news/article/title-142-1

"Hills are Floating' brings together a multitude of different sounds to create an atmosphere truly all his own, one that's calming while still remaining interesting - it won't put you to sleep, but it'll bring you to a state of peace and relaxation." – The 405

I’m finally able to reveal the details about my new album and first full length work, named “Beyond Stolen Notes”: it will be out on May 18th on digital via US Loci Records and limited vinyl via italian Megaphone Records! This project means the world to me and I feel truly grateful to everyone involved to make this record real! An album which was born in Berlin, evolved in my hometown Ancona, went through Tokyo and took inspiration even from my life in Torino and Urbino: the actual deepest exploration I had inside myself. 

I’ve always seen life like a trip and while moving from a step to another I’ve always taken notes through several surfaces: travelling, staring at different landscapes, meeting people, smelling various fragrances… My final way to express what I learned until the present is music, putting down all my experiences into tunes which reflect them as much as possible, trying to catch and create sounds that are able to blend my history with my daydreams. Notes can be stolen, but memory remains.

Thank you to everyone who believes in me and supports my music, to everyone who helped me to realize this project, to my parents, my true friends and all the people I met until this point. This album is dedicated to each one of you, because you’re part of me through your presence into my life: you all inspired this project and I wish you all the best.
