Stefan began playing guitar at age eleven. Inspired by legends like Doc Watson, Mississippi John Hurt, and Brownie McGhee, he eventually studied with John Jackson, Steve James, and Del Ray. He made his stage debut at thirteen performing at Green Haven State Prison in upstate New York. At nineteen he hitchhiked around Europe playing cafes and pubs and had a house band gig in Turkey in a Vegas style night club backing a sword dancer. He left NY in the early 70's and played in San Francisco before settling in Tucson, Arizona. He founded a dance crazed World Beat, R&B band: "Brain Damage Orchestra" with partner Lavinia White in 1983, that broke club attendance records around the South West for ten years.

He then began dedicating himself to honing his acoustic guitar, songwriting, and slide guitar playing skills in earnest. Since then he's been a finalist in the Telluride Troubadour, the Kerrville New Folk, the Music City, and the Just Plain Folks songwriting competitions. He's won TAMMIE Awards (Tucson Area Music Awards) for Solo Artist, Acoustic Guitar, Songwriter, and Acoustic Ensemble and has been inducted into The Tucson Musicians Hall of Fame and The Arizona Blues Hall of Fame.

He's opened for and/or performed with a plethora of music greats such as: James Cotton, Mose Allison, Dave Van Ronk, Pete Seeger, Guy Davis, Norman Blake, Taj Mahal, Junior Lockwood, Honey Boy Edwards, Rory Block, Leftover Salmon, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Louden Wainwright III, Little Feat, Elvin Bishop, and many others.

Recent performance highlights include a solo tour of Germany, two tours with his blues trio "The Conrads" in Germany as well, a National Public Radio concert in Honolulu, featured artist on the internationally syndicated radio show "Beale Street Caravan", the SXSW music conference in Austin, Texas, host and performer at The Kerrville Folk Festival's "Blues Project", The Telluride Blues and Brews Festival, The Mammoth Lakes Bluesapalooza in California, The Silver City Blues Fest in New Mexico, The Lawton International Festival in Oklahoma, The Leverkusen Jazz Fest and The Verdener Blues Tage in Germany, and many, many other great club and festival shows in eight countries and two continents...
