Today we’d like to introduce you to Stephen Burdick.
Hi Stephen, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
It’s nothing crazy. Our band, “The Stone Eye,” came to fruition throughout high school into our present-day lives, and has since gone through countless evolutions with the only foundational pieces being myself and our drummer, Jeremiah.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Like anything, it’s never a smooth road and challenges are always to be had.
Oftentimes, it can be mentally draining trying to keep your focus when having to juggle multiple time commitments between the band and other life needs (such as working other jobs to make money). It also can be discouraging to face constant rejection, as you do in this industry.
The key for me personally is just to map out my goals realistically, never take anything too personal, and understand (as a general rule), that nobody will do anything for you when it comes down to it so you have to be willing to do everything in your power/ability to achieve the goals you set out for yourself.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I play guitar, sing, and am the primary songwriter for my band “The Stone Eye”.
We’re signed to a label, and have put out six records or so, so yeah! I’m most proud of the band’s resilience and constant evolution from a musical & business perspective.
It’s cool to see your art ‘rise’ in the notoriety department.
What matters most to you? Why?
What matters to me most is maintaining my underlying passion for what we do, as that’s what really motivates me to do this.
