About Michael Stephens


A lifetime musican, Michael Stephens has been a jazz lover since his college days in the 70's.

His jazz interest began with the likes of Coltrane, the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Al Jarreau, and Keith Jarrett. It was in college where he first understood what "genius" sounded like. Wanting to follow the same path as his musical mentors, Michael disappointed his parents and dropped out of college to pursue a career in music.

After getting married and parenting two wonderful children and earning a masters degree Michael has found a career in music; he works as Artist Management & Marketing for Tha Nod Factor Records in Atlanta, Ga. Michael still plays drums in his spare time and finds enjoyment helping others achieve their dreams.
