Stephen Steinbrink
Stephen Steinbrink is a 27 year old songwriter and recording engineer born and raised in the arid desert of Arizona and currently floating around the western USA, dividing his time between the green spaces around Olympia, Washington and the concrete flats of Oakland, California. Having spent the better part of a decade touring North America and Europe, Stephen has established himself as a capable and prolific wielder of the pop form, both with his simple heartbreaking lyrics that explore the banal and absurd, to his melodies that can be instantly recalled — as if they've already lived a full life in the listener's head.

Beginning his career in the mid-2000's as a part the west coast DIY underground, Stephen Steinbrink has gone on to relentlessly self-produce 8 LPs of pop music. His breakthrough album, Arranged Waves was recorded in Steinbrink's home studio and was released by Melodic (US/UK) and P-Vine (Japan) in 2014. Praised by the NME and the Guardian, the album explored themes of lost images and repressed memories, conditional reasoning and Zen Buddhism, but ultimately expressed a human vulnerability in its recording quality that makes the album both perplexing and compelling.

Steinbrink's new album ANAGRAMS was recorded by Nicholas Wilbur (Mount Eerie, Hungry Cloud Darkening) at the legendary UNKNOWN in Anacortes, WA, and will be released by Melodic and P-Vine in summer 2016.
