Hip-Hop, Indie

Stephen Hero provides comedic relief throughout as he relays the working class struggles of Saint John like a hip hop Alden Nowlan. His style is heavily influenced by alt rap artists like Kool Keith, El-P and MF DOOM but with a strong penchant for the relaxed and joyous energy of groups like De La Soul and Beastie Boys. His taste in production is eclectic, working with artists in and out of the Hip Hop genre. Combined with his vocal sensibilities and vivid storytelling, this creates a very unique artistic voice.

"Part of what makes each new Stephen Hero release a satisfying listen is his conversational tone usually paired with some of the most complex wording and rhyme play you will hear anywhere. It is a contrast that makes for a wild, exciting ride at times. His words come fast across a mix of both lengthy and abrupt phases allowing key words and thoughts to cut through the lyrical barrage, hinting towards specific narrative themes." - Grid City Magazine
