"His intelligent pictorial music portrays Thoreau-esque inner landscapes in shadowy, muted tones. Stevenson''s playing is open, but forceful in a quiet way; it''s not intentionally showy, but just delivers what each composition requires. His special talent is for creating moods that take you places you probably haven''t been before."
Acoustic Guitar Magazine
“ [His] arpeggios gurgle like a thawing spring or volcano in rivulets of double or triple time. MAY ARISE is a tour de force of strong bass, speedy arpeggios and forceful, slashing harmonics.
Daily Courier, Forest City NC
“Stevenson plays a nylon string guitar with a strong right hand, and displays an unusually original compositional bent. He creates his own to good effect.”
Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine
“ A fresh voice - Highly recommended.”

“Stevenson’s guitar compositions are well-crafted, and played with feeling and style.
. . . . . really impressive, masterful technique.”
Trax Magazine, Kitchener, Ontario
“The clean integrated sound of Stevenson’s guitar is multifold and intriguing.
. . . . .pensive subtlety, tenderly interwoven with rarefied classical sounds.”
