I am a predominantly instrumental guitarist in the vein of Robbie Basho, William Tyler, Marisa Anderson, etc. I draw from a variety of techniques and compositional traditions to create a potent and eclectic sound.
Descriptions from performance pages:
"Stephen Mage is an eclectic new guitarist whose style borrows elements from, among other things, jazz, Appalachian, blues, West African, and Eastern traditions of composition and performance. He has been known to sing a tune or three as well."
"Stephen Mage is an exciting new guitarist. I love how he utilizes the vocal influence of Robbie Basho and does some unique things I haven't seen before. His musical restraint is striking as it occurs within a framework that is inherently self-indulgent."
