Album Notes
“Time to Face the Music” EP - Stephen King

An emotional, debut studio EP loosed, from a singer-songwriter/guitarist with a trio of dynamic musicians. Poetic lyricism, not afraid to say something in art. Genre-busting “Neo-Folk”, driven by rough hewn vocals, sweet folk ballads laced with irony ; retro r ’n’ b jazz influences meet African and reggae grooves. Spontaneous, inspired energy that is unpredictably raw. To that, add a touch of versatile acoustic guitar chops.

Featuring: Pat Metzger & Joel Fountain of Headwater on acoustic bass & drums on tracks: (2,4,5)
Tom Morgan & Jay Benison on electric/upright bass and drums on tracks: (1,3)
Stephen King - Vocals, acoustic guitar, piano on track: 4

Recorded in three live sessions by engineers: Pierre Armstrong, Joel Fountain & David Green; with all musicians present, this self-produced studio recording is the antithesis of heavy-handed production.
Celebrating the moment in time rather than the perfection of editing. "I like to feel moved by human beings, not machines and processors." Wood, wire and skin making sounds organic, that breathe and hearten your decisions in playing and listening. That is the point of this EP. It is a taste of what is to come and really just part of the whole experience.
Each individual musician brings something to the creative table and it gets played in context, then you move on...

Audiences both East & West have had the pleasure to hear some of the story-telling performances which are a fixture in Stephen’s repertoire. From Halifax to Salt Spring Island to Los Angeles, King looks forward to taking a trio on the road this time to points unknown... making new friends in music along the way. Enjoy the ride!
