Stephan Earl's debut album Origins, released November 2009, aims to accomplish just that. Described as nu- jazz or contemporary jazz, this album is the culmination of Stephan's years of passion and love for music.

I wanted the music of Origins to have the raw emotion of music I composed in my youth, yet represent my current thoughts and influences.
