Orange County, CA – FrontGate announced today the signing of Steph Carse for exclusive artist representation. FrontGate will be responsible for the branding, marketing, advertising, social media and public relations for the artist, as well as guiding and directing all aspects of his career.
As a songwriter, performer and recording artist, Steph Carse has sold over 500,000 albums worldwide and received a 5-star review for his 36-show run in Las Vegas from Jerry Fink of The Las Vegas Sun. Known for his impeccable 4-octave vocal range, his story was featured in the PBS Documentary “A Portrait of Steph Carse.” In 1998, Steph achieved a career milestone when he was chosen to participate in the opening ceremony for PortoFino Universal Studios Florida. Backed by a 25-piece orchestra and choir, Steph performed at the ribbon cutting, which also featured the Mayor of PortoFino, Italy as an honored guest.
His song and performance of “Holy Land Experience” is currently airing on TBN in a TV commercial for the popular tourist destination.
Dedicated to championing worthy causes, Carse co-wrote and performed the anthem "Reach Out," the Official Song for The American Red Cross. He also wrote and performed the title track for the album "Holiday Heroes," dedicated to The Special Olympics in Canada. The “Holiday Heroes” album generated over $2 million in net profit for The Special Olympics. Carse is now in the process of creating a song and music video aimed at launching a campaign to end bullying.
As a television producer, Carse won 5 awards from The Florida Motion Picture and Television Association, including Best Feature Film and Best Male Vocalist, for the one-hour TV special “Reach Out” that he produced for PBS.
Widespread praise for Carse’s work includes:
“A truly talented performer with a distinctive voice style and the vocal range to master any work he performs,” - Diane Bliss of PBS.
“The singing sensation with Oscar-winning good looks and a voice to match.” - Jason Buchanan of The New York Times
“Steph’s voice and music convey a great passion for his art,” - Eric Schilling, 16-time GRAMMY Award winner for Engineering/Mixing whose credits include Santana, Johnny Mathis, Dave Grusin, Michael Bolton, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Rod Stewart, Dion, and more.
According to FrontGate CEO Scott A. Shuford, “When I heard his voice, read his lyrics, watched his videos, and then saw the heart of Steph Carse, I knew I could champion the man and his work to the world.” FrontGate’s Terry Warren added, “Having worked with artists like The Jacksons, Kool & The Gang, Edgar Winter and many others, I believe Steph Carse will become a household name in the faith-based community and will touch and affect the lives of millions around the world with his music.”
Carse stated, “I believe that having the right team around you will allow you to reach your full potential and fulfill your goals, dreams and expectations. I feel that FrontGate is that team.”
Carse is currently finishing production of his new album “My Shining Hour” along with a companion one-hour TV special to release in late 2016. For additional information, visit www.StephCarse.com.
