The greatest challenge for any band is to create songs that are
accessible enough to be instantly appealing, but original enough to be
genuinely unique. Stepanian accomplishes this feat with a deft blend
of catchy melodies, instrumental virtuosity, and tasty harmonies, all
combined with thoughtful and expressive lyrics. Band namesake Eric
Stepanian is the group's primary songwriter, with additional tunes and
collaborations contributed by Michael Simon.
But this Boston-based quartet is much more than a songwriting project.
