      From the time he picked up his first guitar, an Atlas "Diamond", from a selection presented by his Father, Stephen Deane Abell has proudly carried on the traditions of Vermont Country Music.  Born in St. Albans, Vermont, son of James Woodworth Abell and Shirley Marlene Aldrich, Stephen has worked the North Country regional country music scene by way of church ensemble, area radio stations WDOT, WLFE, WGLY, WDEV, WOKO, WVAA, and WCAX-TV and with gigs in the area, including Hunt's in Burlington, Vermont. His early original releases include "Reach Out Again" and "Maggie the Red Headed Hairdresser". Stephen's songs have been recorded by Vermont Country Music Artist Sam Masden of the Conrad Samuels Band, gaining extended regional play with Stephen's original tribute song to America's Hero's "Yellow Ribbons and Red, White & Blue".

      Stephen’s parents’ involvement in Vermont Country Music started him in a music environment at an early age. From his first public appearance at age nine, singing with his Dad the Hank Williams classic, "Take These Chains From My Heart", Stephen's music has matured through influences provided by Hank Williams, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and contemporary artists Tom Petty, Alan Jackson and The Beatles.

      Stephen uses Ovation Acoustic, Gibson and Fender electrics, Yamaha recording gear, John Pierce and GHS strings, combined with Fender and Laney amplification systems.  Stephen would like to thank all those who have helped him in his career to date, including his parents, James and Shirley Abell.
