As a breakout star on this year’s season of NBC’s “The Voice,” Stephan blazed a trail being the first Guyanese American on the show. From his unprecedented blind audition and the first male contestant to be stolen from Jennifer Hudson’s team by all-female team leader, Miley Cyrus– Stephan knows how to make waves. The tenacity, texture, and tone of Stephan’s voice calls to the free-thinkers, dreamers, and trailblazers. Partnered with his desire to inspire and uplift the spirits of anyone who hears his music, Stephan continues to rise and be the dynamic force missing in mainstream music.
At an early age Stephan found solace in songwriting and continues to focus on lyrical content as he grows as an artist. His soul-bearing ballad, “Pupperteer”, exclusively released through AfroPunk, solidified his storytelling ability gaining a slot as a semi-finalist in ASCAP’s International Songwriting Competition. Stephan’s genuine spirit and dynamic voice has allowed him to perform on numerous stages from New York to Washington, DC including performing for activist Minister Louis Farrakhan and attending a Master Classes with Neo-soul sensation Ledisi.
Stephan takes pride in his Guyanese roots, growing up in Englewood, NJ surrounded by the love and support of his parents and younger brother. The essence of Stephan rests in his spirituality, which stems from his Guyanese roots and is the foundation of his artistry. As a graduate of Bowie State University in 2012, Stephan uses his background in Child and Adolescent Studies to mentor and motivate youth towards emotional maturity and creative endeavors.
Stephan Marcellus believes that the most vulnerable place produces the purest sound. Stephan grew to understand that true artistry transcends all barriers; that music is born when you commit to becoming your most authentic self. Stephan’s sound, artfully coined alternative soul, is a blend between rock, folk and soul music. His eclectic style paired with his message of freedom and authority transcends all barriers allows him to move freely through all genres of music.
