About Stephen Monroe

A Shot of Bluz with a Rock-n-Roll Chaser
Stephen Monroe is a song writer, a singer and a guitar player. He truly loves these endeavors and the crooked path that it has put him on. Stephen’s musical journey began when his two older brothers let him come to their band practices and gigs. Next he proceeded to learn to play his oldest brother's bass guitar playing along with records. He started to pick up the six string in similar more methodical fashion. There was great music all around and he caught the bug. His first band was right out of high school, playing bass and singing, a pattern that he would follow for many years to come. Stephen was writing the whole time and a few of his tunes made it to the song lists and demos in some of the bands. Then it was time to step away. It didn't work anymore. Stephen started writing more introspectively and performing solo acoustic in church. For a time, he played with friends at coffee houses and bars and kept writing and playing that guitar. When he fog cleared, Stephen Monroe went solo. He followed his vision, passion and found his current path. Music creates a joy that works both ways when it is done with authenticity and heart. This musical journey has brought Stephen through many trying times and tricky situations. It also has allowed him to meet tremendous people. All these things give him the desire to give something that is fresh and of the highest quality he can muster. Stephen hopes you enjoy his musical efforts and it helps lift you up.

A warm and hearty thanks to you

I just wanted to say thanks so much to all of you that have stopped by and subscribed. It warms my heart to see people enjoy something that means so much to me. I have tried for most of my adult life to create music that can stand the test of time and the test of people like you that know what good music should sound like. it starts with an idea in my head and ends up being played live and then to the recording process that can be nerve racking at times but is still a great, fun, part of the process.
It humbles me to see the number of folks that have stopped by. Thank you and I send my well wishes to each and everyone of you everywhere you are. Please feel free to write back any time to touch base or just say hi. I've tried to upload the latest song, OUR LOVE REMAINS but have a bit of a time with it.
You all take good care of yourself and one another. We're all we got and we're all we need. Hug often and don't let a person you love go without knowing that you do. Peace and Love and Happiness

Life just keeps gettin' better

Hello wonderful souls who have crossed my musical path. I hope you're feeling good about yourself and have plenty of love to make you feel whole. It's been a while since I have written anything here, been a little busy gigging and getting married. THAT'S RIGHT brothers and sisters, there is a Mrs. Monroe now, my lovely Kay. Quickly, we've been together 7 years and our folks are in their mid to late 80's and are healthy so we thought......now it the time! My brother David, who plays the keys on Smitten and Resigned, rearranged my song for Kay, "She's the One for Me" to piano to walk my bride down the aisle. We had quotes from Black Elk, Lakota Holy Man and a poem I wrote for Kay. My daughters did the reciting. It was great and a lot of fun. I even walked my face into a plate glass window on the way out to pictures. Nothing broke, a little blood, all is well.
I wrote a song for the wedding I performed for Kay and is now part of my set list and I will GET IT RECORDED as soon as I can and post it here for some new music, "I Have You" is the tentative title.
Your support for all the music here at N1M is crucial to us all. YOU are a integral part of our keepin' on keepin' on that we do on the creative end of the spectrum. Thank you for being there and listening and sharing. it keeps the heart pumping.
You all take good care of yourselves and each other. It don't matter what people say, it matters how we treat each other.
Hoping the best for you all. Your Musical Pal,

Thankful

As Gypsy Eyes courses through my headphones and permeates my soul, I wanted to drop a line to all you beautiful people that have dropped in and seem to dig th3e music I have posted here. Each one of you lifts me up. I appreciate you. I used to work for a company that handled transmitting petroleum pricing and I worked with a lady from Arkansas and she never said thank you, she said "I appreciate you". That's a bit deeper and if you mean it.....you should say it!
My musical journey has taken me to a lot of places. I was on local TV this week promoting an event called THE BOXER 500 a run/walk for Colon Cancer Awareness. I am a survivor, thank goodness, and this will be my 8th year of playing for everyone after they run/walk and line up to get their breakfast form THE PANCAKEMAN ( I wrote him a song! ). They have made me Honorary Chair this year to say thanks and I did the TV spot to say thanks to them. I got to play THEY SAID YEAH for about 40 seconds....big star on TV! It reminds me how lucky I am to be here, let alone to have over 270 people drop into a website and listen to my music. Don't take anything for granted. Especially not life. Keep up on things so you can stay as long as possible. We all need YOU!! No matter what. We're all in this together one way or another. All we need to do is to treat people the way you want to be treated and love each other. Anyone that has truly loved someone knows that may go beyond understanding or agreeing all the time.....the parental experience is a trip.
You all take good care. I have new and old material on the site and I need to get to recording more. Stay tuned and keep scanning that dial and reach out to the artists you enjoy. You're the helium to our balloons!
Peace and Love and Happiness

New Song upload

Greetings my friends. Stephen here the day after the booming and I would like to present to you a new song that is in it's inception but worthy of your discretional ears. My song, Smitten and Resigned was penned by myself and recorded on my first published CD, Traveling at the Speed of Steve, so long ago. It has stood the test of time and my dear brother David has been playing it in Seattle with his band and when he does solo gigs. David in my older brother and an inspiration to my continued efforts musically. This version is arranged by David K. Johnson ( my brother ) and he plays the piano on it. I have paid down the vocals on it and provided some background vocals too ( The Ready for Rehab Singers ). I hope you enjoy it.
This song will reincarnate itself in the future with some adjustments to make it even better. This is a work in progress like everything else we do. I wanted to share this experience with you as you have made me a believer in myself by your listening and kind words.
If any of you are publishers, give me a jingle....
Take good care and enjoy the music all over the globe it seems, which is exciting to me. Drop me a line if you feel like it.
All the best to all of you out there in Number One Musicland!!
SM
