ESTEBAN BIO-

His name was given him by legendary classical guitarist Andres Segovia, who called him “Esteban” during his years of study with the master in Spain (1974-1978) and in the United States. Born Stephen Paul in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, son of a steelmill worker, Esteban saw his first guitar in a shop window when he was 8 years old. His uncle bought it for him and Esteban says, “It never left my hands.”

From that moment on, he focused on the guitar, teaching himself to play and practicing every spare moment. Esteban’s dream was to be able to express his deep inner feelings through his music. He wanted to study with legendary classical guitarist Andres Segovia, but being self taught, it seemed impossible, since Segovia only accepted students of other classical guitarists, in the traditional settings of master classes. So he gave up on that quest for a while, attended college, and graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in 1972, majoring in guitar and English literature. 1968, his first year at university, was the first year guitar was offered at Carnegie Mellon, and the guitar teacher was a cellist with the Pittsburgh Symphony. He really was not an accomplished guitarist, so Esteban was basically on his own once again, teaching himself. He stunned the juries with his amazing self-taught technique, playing his own compositions and performing the Spanish gypsy flamenco-style guitar.

Upon graduation, he began teaching guitar at music studios and performing local gigs, but his quest of studying with Segovia was always with him. He decided to try another way to meet the maestro, since he could not gain entry into any master classes. Esteban left hundreds of messages for Segovia on bright yellow index cards, while Segovia was on his world tours, saying, “My life is meaningless unless I can study with you.” Year after year he sent them everywhere Segovia went.

After a relentless pursuit in Los Angeles, Segovia finally permitted Esteban to play for him in 1974. Segovia gave him a long list of specific pieces of music to learn and promised Esteban that he would listen to him again the following year, when he returned to Los Angeles for concerts. When Segovia returned and heard Esteban play, he invited the student to Santiago de Compostela, in northern Spain, for master classes. After these classes, Segovia invited Esteban to Madrid to study privately with the maestro in Segovia’s famous 4th floor studio on Avenida Concha Espina. These were memorable times in Esteban’s life, never to be forgotten.

For four years Esteban studied with the master whenever possible, in Spain and in the U.S., and in 1978 Segovia gave Esteban his endorsement. Esteban returned to the U.S. and began touring.

One year later, Esteban was in an automobile accident and was hit by a speeding drunk driver. He lost his ability to play the guitar for 10 years, because of severe damage to his left arm and hand. By 1990, through dedication and love of music, he began to again play the guitar he so loved.

Since then to the present day, Esteban has topped the Billboard charts many times with his numerous albums, videos and DVD’s, and has had first-time music history successes never before accomplished by any guitarist. He has been on the front page of the Wall Street Journal for his famous appearances and record-setting album sales on Home Shopping Network. Esteban enjoyed a full feature article in People Magazine as well as thousands of accolades from newspapers, magazines, and dedicated fans everywhere. He created a musical instrument division for affordable, quality guitars, and one of his big dreams has come true: hundreds of thousands of children and adults who never played before are now playing music. His concerts are memorable moments of the heart, and whether he performs solo or with his band, the reviews are sensational and the experiences exceptional.

The Listening Room Phoenix

A one-of-a-kind live acoustic performance experience
at a live recording studio in Phoenix, AZ.

THE LISTENING ROOM PHOENIX
Listen, and enjoy.

Welcome to The Listening Room Phoenix, an audio and video recording studio with a live audience. The experience you will have is unlike anything you have had elsewhere – and that is our plan. When attending a performance here, you are participating in a live recording session. So, leave your stresses at the door, enjoy being amongst friends, grab a seat, relax and enjoy some of the best acoustic music available in Phoenix.

THE LISTENING ROOM PHOENIX
Created for performers, by performers.

After years of local performing in the Nashville and Phoenix markets and more years of touring performances across the US, marketing professional and music manager Jim Colletti and singer-songwriter Adam Smith set out to create the ideal performance experience for the performer. Jim and Adam truly believe that if the performer has everything needed to present their best possible performance, the audience will surely have the best possible experience.

Musicians and singers face a number of challenges pursuing their art. They must often perform under conditions that are less than ideal, including noisy bars and restaurants, awkward coffee shops or wide-open public spaces where they are easily ignored.

As an alternative, The Listening Room Phoenix offers the perfect space for acoustic performance artists, and the people who appreciate them. Acoustically balanced and technically sound, it provides a pure experience for both the player and spectator, free of distraction or discomfort of any kind. And, each performance is recorded before a live studio audience, which guarantees a rapt and receptive crowd—and a satisfying performance.

Centrally located in midtown Phoenix AZ, recording sessions at The Listening Room Phoenix are open to audiences who appreciate great acoustic music. Some performances are ticketed and some have a simple door charge. Either way, the fee will go a very long way in keeping each artist on their path to success and keeping The Listening Room Phoenix a healthy destination for great music.
