Country \ Classic Rock \ Rock
With over 20 years experience accompanying other musicians playing bass or acoustic guitar or fronting bands myself both here in Newfoundland and Alberta. My ultimate goal has always been to record a full length country album. I am currently in the process of recording an EP with hopes of completing a full length country album in 2016.
I have competed in a number of singing competitions with my best showing in the Rising Country Superstar competition in 2006 in Edmonton, Alberta where I placed in the top 25.
Check out my profile on Reverbnation at www.reverbnation.com/stephenblawrence. I’ve had some success on this site ranking as high as #19 on the Reverbnation country chart in Canada and #1 here in Newfoundland.

Stephen B Lawrence
Performing live onstage since 1993, veteran Newfoundland and Labrador singer-songwriter Stephen Lawrence embraces his country and gospel roots to bring his audiences nearly 25 years of toe-tapping, heart-felt original music, hitting stages that range from local festivals and to opening for acclaimed artists, such as Jan Arden.
In the summer of 2016, he released his 6 song EP entitled "Make You Believe", which garnered industry interest and earned him a nomination for the 2016 Music NL Country Recording of the Year. The early single release from the EP, "Far From Where You Are", was also selected as a regional finalist for the 2016 CBC Searchlight competition.
Stephen’s first full-length album is slated for release in the summer of 2017 and a tour across the province and beyond is being developed in support of this much anticipated recording, with a combination of tour sales and e-commerce driving the project forward. With the short-term goal of following this tour with showcases of his craft at major industry events, such as the annual ECMA conference, Stephen’s longer-term goals include tour planning for the Atlantic region, connecting with like-minded artists for song-writing collaborations, and networking to attract producers and artist managers to partner with him as his career moves forward. Poised to move quickly into the Canadian music industry’s spotlight, Stephen Lawrence is a musical force to be reckoned with! Come on out to a live show in your area and let Stephen “Make You Believe”!
