  • BIO

    Stephen Carl O’Shea is a minimal sound artist and songwriter from New Westminster, British Columbia. As a co-founding member of new wave band You Say Party, he has toured across 3 continents and played hundreds of shows in dive bars, all ages spaces, and music festivals. He now finds himself staying closer to his home and exploring new avenues of songwriting. His passion for arts and community building has led him to be the artistic director of Jam in Jubilee Music Festival (2012-2014) and currently works as the Executive Director of the Arts Council of New Westminster (2015 to present).

     

    Stephen released a split 12" LP with The Sylvia Platters through 101.7 FM CIVL Radio in October of 2018. Shadow Steps was nominated for three categories (Experimental, Electronic, Punk) at the 2018 Fraser Valley Music Awards and has spent five weeks at #1 of the 101.7 FM CIVL Radio weekly EarShot charts. Shadow Steps was the most played album on CIVL Radio in 2018.

     

    In 2015, he released his first in a series of collaborative EPs entitled “Midnight Music” with New York-based artist Holy Hum. Released in the spring of 2019, "EXPANSE" was a collaborative audiovisual work created with Montreal-based artist Daniel Ross.
