BioGraphy

Sour Steve is a 23 year old punk rock multi-instrumentalist, surrealist mixed media artist, photographer, composer, producer, and self promoter hailing from heroin-infested, small town, USA. Currently residing in Hickory, North Carolina, his DIY attitude coincides with the ideas and ethics of the punk rock community and is reflected in his music and art.
Tyler "Sour Steve" Stephens was originally a drummer in a handful of bands across the east coast before deciding to go solo. He first picked up the guitar and the drum set at age nine and has been wailing on anything he can get his hands on ever since. Growing up in Northern West Virginia, Tyler has won numerous awards, talent shows and competitions across the state with his music either performing alone or with a band. Over the years, Tyler has learned the drums set and most percussion instruments, the guitar as well as bass, piano/keyboard, and vocals. All of which you can hear in Sour Steve's music available on all major streaming services!
Tyler Stephens is also an independent surrealist mixed media artist specializing in punk rock album covers. Using hand-carved collages, Tyler combines his music with his own artwork to invoke a feeling of hysteria and dread on the listener. Driven by his own inner demons and struggles, Tyler brings an uneasy yet unique and gripping experience to the punk rock community. Sour Steve's fast, chaotic instrumentals and snobbish, screechy vocals combined with the trashed, scattered, glued-together mess of his own physical artwork brings an experience similar to the highs of the synthetic party drugs that flow through the streets like rain, leaving you a wreck but begging for more! Like punk rock but with a dab of sour juice, when life gives you lemons, scream!
Due to the rise of Coronavirus, there will be no live performances by Sour Steve in the near future but more music will be coming very soon!
