About

Who am I?

Stephen Delaney Carpenter, also known as Just Steve, a Lyricist/Musician, doing it all for the Kingdom of God. Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, a son of a musician (Tony TOCA Carpenter, Sr.). My way of delivering messages in musical poetic form has been described by many as passionate , creative, and rare. I aim to be a well rounded writer, and live performer. I've gratefully had the opportunity to share my gifts everywhere from the L trains in Chicago to the people in South Africa. My debut album “Euroclydon” gives you a taste of what i represents and what I'm all about. 

My goal is to make creative, eclectic, life changing music.

What am I doing?

Well my first album “Euroclydon”, which is based on making it through life's storms, and was written during some of my hardest and tragic years, losing a best friend and a spouse in the process,  the kind of challenges that almost lead me to retirement.  Since then, I’ve made major life and musical progress. I’m at a different place in life, I’m feeling refreshed and re-inspired, still carrying the things learned from my past, I'm back with a new inspiration.

 I recently filmed a live DVD featuring my band, where we re-created music from the “Euroclydon”, album, giving the world a different perspective of me, and music. Entitled “Euroclydon Un-plugged”. 

And I’m also ready to release some of this fresh music that has been poured out after the storm,  a completely new original album. I’ve been studying poetry, and listening to music with a new ear.  And I’ve written so much that my pen hates me lol.

 What will I do with your help?

-You will be helping me get the video project “Euroclydon Unplugged" packaged and ready to be released.

-You’ll be helping with the full production of the new album which includes studio time, production of music, mixing and mastering.

-And lastly you will be helping me completely restructure my website, and all of my marketing avenues to get me up to date.

I thank you all so much!! Your time, support, donations and prayers are very much appreciated. I truly believe nothing is impossible with God! Looking forward to this new season and I pray that my music will be a blessing to you all. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! 

Risks and challenges

If I don't raise the funds for these projects, I'll have to move to plan B, which is to think of a plan B, lol. But seriously, I'm stepping out on faith and believing that now is the time for me to get these projects out to the world.

If I do reach my goal, I'm gonna get to work right away but please keep in mind that I am only human, which means timelines can change due to circumstances in or out of my control. However, I pride myself in being a man of my word and I'm excited and eager to get these projects out to you in the timely manner.
