'His intelligent pictorial music portrays Thoreau-esque inner landscapes in shadowy, muted tones. Stevenson's playing is open, but forceful in a quiet way; it's not intentionally showy, but just delivers what each composition requires. His special talent is for creating moods that take you places you probably haven't been before.' Acoustic Guitar Magazine " [His] arpeggios gurgle like a thawing spring or volcano in rivulets of double or triple time. MAY ARISE is a tour de force of strong bass, speedy arpeggios and forceful, slashing harmonics. Daily Courier, Forest City NC "Stevenson plays a nylon string guitar with a strong right hand, and displays an unusually original compositional bent. He creates his own to good effect." Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine " A fresh voice - Highly recommended." Greenline, Asheville NC (no longer in print) "Stevenson's guitar compositions are well-crafted, and played with feeling and style. . . . . . really impressive, masterful technique." Trax Magazine, Kitchener, Ontario "The clean integrated sound of Stevenson's guitar is multifold and intriguing. . . . . .pensive subtlety, tenderly interwoven with rarefied classical sounds." Heartsong Review, Eugene, Oregon.
