“Deep Listen” is Stephen Peppos’ 7th album release and his second ambient album. “Deep Listen was visualized as random fluid tones, ebbing & flowing to produce a relaxing aural experience,” explains Stephen. “Minimal elements was the intention as I just let the music go where it wanted to go.”
Released on his artist-owned label, Sonic Bear Music, “Deep Listen” offers 10 original, trance-inducing tracks. You may sample the album on Bandcamp:
Get to know the artist
At the age of 5, Stephen had two passions; baseball & the desire to play drums. Stephen’s mom, Anna Peppos, decided to purchase him a spinet piano instead of the drum set he really wanted, and today, Stephen is grateful to his mom for that decision! By age 6, he learned to play every note of Jerry Lee Lewis’ “Great Ball’s of Fire” and his passion for music grew.
Stephen has released seven contemporary instrumental albums in the New Age genre. In 2008, Stephen’s debut album “Vertigo” debuted at #3 on the World New Age Top 100 Chart and his next release, “Follow The Mist” was a 1st round GRAMMY ballot choice for Best New Age Album in 2009.
In 2017 his ambient album “Leaving Terra Firma” was a final ballot choice for the 60th Gram my Awards in the Best New Age Album category. His music has garnished him 6 Tell y & Rim Awards. And he received “Best Instrumental Album -Piano” award from Lifestyle Music Awards for his “Follow The Mist” album.
