Stephen L. Smith is a fingerstyle guitarist, who has been practicing guitar for over 8 years. He plays many popular songs such as Billie Jean and Africa, as well as some rock classics like Dream On and California Dreaming. The rest of his repertoire is heavily inspired by Tommy Emmanuel and a few other famous Fingerstyle guitarist. His style is unlike most popular styles, as he plays all parts of the song on one guitar. The bass, melody and rhythm are all included on a single instrument!
He didn’t start until middle school, but as his skills increased, he quickly began to implement a strict practice regiment. In 2016, he won a talent show, put on by the Division 55 Police Center. This talent show had participants from every high school in the Division 55 area.
Stephen is also an experienced performer, starting from music recitals, and open mics put on by his music schools to eventually playing at bars and restaurants. Now, he’s even performed at weddings, house parties, and corporate events.
