About the Band

Category: Band
Music Genre: Country, Cover, New Country

Following the rules and waiting for something to happen has never been in country music up and coming artist, Stephen Neal. "I knew the path of going to Nashville and writing hundreds of songs and playing in song-writer bars and just hoping that someday someone hears you, would not be a reality for me," recalls Neal. "I knew my opportunity would lie ahead building my own fan base and connecting with new fans in each city that I’d go."

Stephen has done just that. With just over a year since he decided to “go for it” and release his first EP, “I Just Drive” and then a second acoustic EP Stephen has amassed a fan base on his social media alone over 20,000 followers which continues to climb.

Beyond his fresh new music, Stephen's rapidly growing fan base is much attributed to the way he connects with his fans both through social media and at his shows. He tries to meet with as many of his fans before and after his shows as he believes that it makes sense to give back to those who are giving to you.

Stephen has gotten the chance to play along with fellow artists that were once in his shoes - he's had the opportunity to play with Chris Young, Joe Nichols, Granger Smith, Trace Adkins, Michael Ray and looks forward to what's to come.

"It's been pretty surreal to get to learn from these guys here in my first year ; I've watched them from the side of the stage, caught up with them and picked their brains on things that I may or may not have thought of. Many of these artists had also chosen the path of grinding it out on the road for years as well; which gives me a greater appreciation for the craft, but also inspires me as an artist myself."
Stephen's currently working on releasing a new EP to go alongside his first EP released earlier this past year; "I have been working on some new songs which I would say is the most excited I've been about anything I've ever done in the music industry. I have high hopes for what the future holds!"

This guy right here is one of my best friends that helped me through one of the toughest parts of my life. Nashville can be a tough place as an outsider finding people who genuinely care and pure intentions. I’ve been here for over 3 years now and it’s finally starting to feel like home. Glad to have this feller in my life but now to top it off a business partner and phenomenal songwriting partner. Pumped to show you what we are working on. #bestfriends
I better start using some #sunscreen thanks @swayjaycalvin #faceapp #oldman #bandwagon

I always said I hated this house but I never really hated it. It was just a constant reminder of a journey that had not been completed. I moved to Nashville to make music and chase those dreams of being on stage in front of thousands. I was just not used to waiting and having patience to achieve a dream to this magnitude which was a growing pain for me. But in my time here in Nashville, it also brought me a new love and special person into my life where we shared this home for almost two years and amazing memories here and all over the country. The other morning I walked down those stairs for the last time to start my day in its normal routine... let the dogs out, start the frying pan, drink a glass of water and check e-mails. Never did I think I’d be wishing for another day just to be in this cruddy house. Not because of the walls and the physical being of the house but because together this was our home: her and I, a team and pair that was never to be broken, she was safe feeling in my heart and although the last year had many ups and downs in our lives it was the only place I wanted to be. Now this step is over in my life and people move on and say “off to bigger and better things” but in reality the best thing you can have is a person to hold your hand and not give up on you through the walk of life. I want to thank all my friends and family who have reached out over the last couple weeks. I appreciate you all and mean the world to me. I’ll be fine in the end but just need time to heal. I need Time for me to reset and refocus. Get back to the grind. You’ll see music from me soon and it will be better than ever but over the next few weeks you’ll just see me trying to regroup and focus on myself and hopefully one day be everything that I can be. Love you all. - SN #love #familywins #tonewbeginnings ... See MoreSee Less
