Stephan Hogan releasing new music!

image1.PNGNot that long ago, we shared a story about Stephan Hogan, country singer and guitarist from Sacramento, California who made it into the top 5 for Guitar Center’s National Competition – On Stage with Vince Gill. Selected from thousands of entrants, Stephan got to rehearse and play with Vince Gill at The Mint in Los Angeles.

2017 hasn’t slowed down for Stephan. He has been busy recording  his latest EP, “Dangerous Love,” which will release March 17th, in addition to fielding interviews, playing shows and getting ready to join Vince Gill on tour at one of his shows this year. 5397c19dca4babd9016ac51ac3a8499b.jpg

Stephan spent a lot of time writing his next round of songs for the EP with the support of family and friends. As an artist, it’s very easy to mold your songs into what is currently trending, but not necessarily a true representation of your sound. This EP promises to be 100% Stephan Hogan, and we had the pleasure of previewing it before it’s released. Some of our favorite tracks include, “Girls Love Love Songs,” and the title track “Dangerous Love.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Stephan Hogan, a Sacramento, California country music singer/songwriter

is announced as a top five finalist in Guitar Center Presents On stage with Vince Gill Contest June 28, 2016

 

Sacramento, Ca – All the way down the windy country roads of the sunshine state, comes a fresh, raw talent that is ready to take on the world of country music. Stephan Hogan is focused, 100%, on pursuing the musical aspirations that took root at a young age.  Stephan started strumming the guitar at just 5 years old and soon thereafter started his career in performing while singing “Country Road” by John Denver.  It was then that the lights left their mark on the soul of a young 5th grader; and his destiny was set.

Growing up listening to musical influences like The Eagles with his dad, Stephan’s roots in country music were just taking ground.   It wasn’t until he attended his first country music concert by Tim McGraw that he grasped on to the easy, honest, and genuine culture of country music.  Loving songs like Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now” for its crossover reach into the world of pop, Hogan jumped onto the country train and hasn’t looked back.

Stephan regularly spends time in Nashville, performing/writing, and has decided to bring a bit of Nashville back home.  With his growing fan base and show schedule, he’s reaching an untapped market of loyal, California based country music fans.

Within just 6 months of recording his song, “Let’s Get Loud”, CMT came knocking and used it on a show, allowing thousands to hear the driven new voice.  Influenced by the likes of Thomas Rhett and The Cadillac Three, Stephan Hogan engineers and produces all of his own music.  Even after failing a vocational project in high school for proclaiming his dreams, this dedicated musician never stopped playing.  Music is his business, his goal, and his passion.

Stephan has now turned this passion into a reality by winning a coveted finalist spot in Guitar Center’s On Stage with Vince Gill in their National Competition. Entrants were required to submit a video of themselves playing guitar alongside of Vince Gill’s song, “Take me down,” released in November of 2015. Entrants were recommended to add their own personal style into the song, allowing them to showcase their individuality and musical ability. Finalists were selected from a panel of judges and Vince Gill himself, and the winner of the contest will open for one of the country’s leading guitarists at one of his U.S. Tour Performances. Each of the five finalists will be flown to Los Angeles to compete on stage in front of a panel of judges where the winner will be selected. In addition, each of the five finalists will win over six thousand dollars in prizes.

Stephan is currently managed by All About Groove Management and recently released his latest single, “Ballin’ on a Budget” now playing on multiple terrestrial radio stations. stephan
