Finally this damn 2020 is finished and we can jump into the new year! I really wish the best for everybody, to stay healthy and get rid of this virus..most of all, I hope the World to get rid of the virus of ignorance, cause that it’s making so much more damage than the Corona one..please stay safe, respect each other, keep loving the blues and listening to all good music..and hopefully we will be back on track soon! I can’t wait to come back on the road, touring like the “old” days..every weekend in a different country..damn, I miss that so much..meanwhile, I did some upgrades to my studio, the FuzzNote, so I can produce more videos about myself and my music, and deliver it to you, in the best quality possible! Till soon folks!!
Hey folks..I didn’t post anything here for a while, for several reasons..honestly, it didn’t take me long to activate myself and my creativity and figure out how to survive to this unexpected and crazy situation..I can definitely be proud of myself. But then..I just fell in a moment of emptiness..no ideas, no creativity, and a lot of health issues..at the moment, the refrain of this time didn’t change..concerts keep being cancelled, and I figure there won’t be much left before the end of the year. Before the lockdown, I was in the middle of the recordings of my next record, called “Trouble never let you down”..perfect name for this time, right?! Hopefully I’ll be able to go back to work on it soon..I have my band “The lonesome millionaires” backing me up on that, plus fantastic guests. It will be a soulful record for sure! Anyway, I look forward to better and safer times, to come back on stage, with energy and enthusiasm. Stay safe and healthy. Love, Stef
Hope you had a great start on this 2020!
On my side, I begun the new year working a little bit less on stage, but very intensively in studio. Two records already saw the light, and my new solo record will be released very soon..and I am so excited about it!!

Again, Mountain Blues Camp has been simply awesome!
One week of music, dances, classes, fun, friendship, and the amazing landscape of Tuscany!!
This event is really one of a kind..here are some pictures I took there, just to give you a little idea!
I just came back from Rebel Heart Blues, Cork! It was my first time in Ireland, and I loved it!
This year is giving me the privilege of traveling a lot to many amazing countries, some of them I never been before! Russia, Ireland, Scotland..and next year is promising to be fantastic as well..check out the calendar and you’ll know what I am talking about!!
Coming next: Blues Cruise, and my dear Mountain Blues!!
I’m just back from Blues Spot, Strasbourg, and I had a very good time!
Unfortunately, I missed the first show on Saturday night cause my flight has been cancelled..on this regard, I have to say that the crew of KLM/Air France at Amsterdam airport is simply fantastic. They did the best to help me out, find a solution, give me a cool hotel plus dinner, etc..with kindness even in a messy situation where everybody was shouting their frustration in their face!
Looking forward to coming back to Strasbourg next year!
By the way..the extra time spent at the airport had a lucky and sweet note..The Roots were on my same flight the day after, and I had a chat with their fabulous guitar player, Captain Kirk Douglas!!
Sorry for not being super active here recently, but I’ve been crazy busy touring and working on building my own studio in Berlin, Woodoo Studio! (It’s almost done, by the way..)
Wow..what an intense period of touring! The beautiful thing is that I had the chance to visit so many different places, cultures, and I met wonderful people!
I had such amazing experiences, so here is a little photo resume of the recent trips!
I also decided from now on to publish on this blog a new post everytime and everywhere I am traveling, so you can share a little bit with me the experience on the road!!
Next trip: right now, Strasbourg, France, Blues Spot!!
Hey blues folks!
Hope all of you is doing well! While I am taking a short family vacation, I received this amazing news!
“Soul mining”, the album I recorded with Micha Maass and Klaas Wendling, received a nomination in Germany for “Album of the Year”!!
You can’t imagine how I feel, looking at my name in the same list with John Mayall, Joe Bonamassa, Watermelon Slim, Walter Trout..still can’t believe it!
I just can send my gratitude to all the people involved in the making of this record, my family for the endless support, and all of you guys, around the World, who always support me and appreciate my music..thank you so much!!
See you around..as always!! 🙂
Hey blues people,
After almost 150 concerts, it’s time to say goodbye to 2018 and welcome the new year!
I hope it will be full of good times and vibes for you all!!
I would like to look forward to it the same way Julius Cesar is looking to the sunset behind Fori Imperiali in Rome, one of my favorite places on Earth!
My best regards to y’all!
The last concert of the year is finished, now it’s finally time to rest a little and enjoy family time!
What an incredible year..full of concerts, travels, and emotions. I’m blessed to have this life, with beautiful people by my side always supporting me to do my best.
Thank you for your support, appreciation, and dances!
Looking forward to playing for you in 2019!
All the best, and have a great Christmas time!!
