Stephan discovered Morocco many years ago while touring as a professional musician. Many birthdays, a marriage, two dogs, and three cats later, Morocco has become his home base.
Stephan has worked with artists, record labels, and production companies from all over the world, and in many capacities. His own productions have been distributed to critical and commercial acclaim, and his instrumental music has appeared in television, radio, and film productions throughout his career.
Outside the studio, he has toured North America, Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Caribbean as a professional musician and bandleader, gaining valuable lessons about life and people, and about different kinds of music from around the world. He’s been signed to two record deals as an artist, and he writes, engineers, and produces for groups and artists in many genres. Stephan also owns and operates SMP, the only high-end SSL recording studio in North-Africa. He has dedicated his entire life to music, the recording studio, and the business in-between, and has worked on countless albums and projects as a musician, songwriter, producer, engineer, and arranger. He’s also an avid fisherman, art junkie, and gear nerd.
