Rising country artist, Kurt Stevens is a singer, songwriter and guitarist. Not only is Kurt a classically trained pianist he is also a self taught guitarist and singer. Originally from South Florida, Stevens is a recent graduate of Florida State University and remains passionate about the laid back beach lifestyle he grew up with on the coast. From surfing to fishing - he loves it all. Stevens grew up with a rich and eclectic musical influence that comes through in his songwriting. His Dad made sure he grew up listening to all of the legends, including The Allman Brothers, Johnny Cash, The Eagles, AC/DC, and his personal idol, Elvis Presley. Stevens always knew he wanted a career in music and understood that hard work and commitment would be required in addition to talent, so he worked after school and on weekends at a local jewelry shop to save up for his first guitar, a Gibson Songwriter Deluxe, which he still plays on stage today.
