This Week's Featured Artist
Stephen & The SnakeBoth Stephen Martin and Eric "the Snake" Gulliksen were members of the soft-rock group Orpheus, which was active from 1968 until 1972. During that time, Orpheus released three albums and four singles on MGM Records, and one album and one single on Bell Records, all produced by musical legend Alan Lorber.
Starting in 2004, the guys performed and recorded together in the reconstituted Orpheus Reborn. Late in 2007 they began a "side project" which they called Stephen & the Snake, that has now become their primary musical focus.
The pair's music is a unique composite of multiple genres including folk, rock, blues, jazz, gospel and reggae.
Signed to Alan Lorber's Iris Music Group, their recordings also make extensive use of ambient sound to paint auditory pictures with strong messages.
Together or separately, Stephen and the Snake have had recorded performances and / or compositions released
on more than thirty-seven different labels.
