Stephen Paul Taylor
Synth Pop / Bertlin
My name is Stephen. I’m from a small town in Canada called Prince George. I fell in love with Eighties music as a child. Everything from Depeche Mode to OMD to Gary Numan. 80s music and especially synths, played a big role in my development. I wrote my first song on a cheesy Casio at 14 years old, entitled “Under The Moonlight”.
After a string of Mcjobs, I eventually went to Emily Carr Art University and after graduating, torn between filmmaking and music, I chose the latter, diving into it full time. I become a full-time musician in 2009 with my duo Trike. In 2013 I branched off and went solo, reaching viral fame a year later with “EKSF”. Since then I’ve released “People Tonight” (LP), “Single and 17” (EP) and “Synthpop is Dead” (LP) which I also released on vinyl. I’ve also released several singles. I toured Europe several times and now, in 2023, I released my first pop song in two years entitled “Craving My Affection”.
“Craving My Affection” was written on the subject of obsession and desire. I had a stalker in my early days of Trike and this song harks back to those days, except in the song, the protagonist desires his admirer intensely, even though he’s aware that it will lead to disaster. I was influenced by Synthwave and “Blinding Lights” by The Weeknd whilst making this song.
My upcoming single features Preston Heyman (Kate Bush’s drummer) as producer and Derrick McIntyre (Jamiroquai) on bass. They’re appearing on three songs from my upcoming album.
