About Stephen Boykin

You can now purchase my music using the "buy" button under the song title or go directly to iTunes. Thank you for your support! Not all songs are available for purchase at the moment. It's taking longer than usual to get them distributed properly. Thanks for your patience.

Hello everyone and thank you for reading my bio.
From as far back as I can remember, I wanted to be a musician. To make music, to play music, and eventually to write music. My principle instrument was trumpet where I played at the professional level in symphonic wind ensembles, marching bands, jazz bands, small ensembles, orchestras and directed community bands. My undergraduate degree was in music education K-12 and my master’s degree was in composition and arranging.
After graduating from ASU in west Texas, I made the decision to work for AT&T, which my parents thought would be a better long-term bet. And although I had a 27 year career with AT&T, I always promised myself that after I retired, I would return to my music. I have been lucky to be able to do this and am very excited about it. It is my hope that my music will resonate with you and that you will be able to add me to your instrumental favorites. I appreciate your support and look forward to bringing you the best music I can make. For me and for you. Peace.

All songs from "Hello World" were produced using a Roland Juno-G.
All songs from "Circumstance and Misunderstandings", “Beautiful”, and “Musica" were produced using Pro-Tools Studio, 10, 11, & 12, Roland Fantom-6, and numerous plug-ins.

All songs written, arranged, played, engineered, and produced by Stephen Boykin.

Stephen's studio(The Bunker) consists of a Roland Juno-G, a Roland Fantom G-6 keyboard, a DAW(iMac-1TB SSD), running Pro Tools Studio, and a Focusrite Sapphire PRO 14. I mainly use Spectrasonics Keyscape, Omnisphere, Trilian, and Stylus plug-ins, XPand, Predator, Hammersmith, Kontakt, Lounge Lizard, Ozone 9 for mastering, along with a variety of embedded Pro Tools/AVID plug-ins. All of this is pushed through a pair of Yamaha HS5's speakers. My thanks to all of the vendors and their awesome equipment. Without your help with all of this gear, I would be dead in water, so again, thank you!

Without you and my fans, I could not have done it without you!
