Steven Archdeacon is a singer/songwriter, guitarist, independent recording artist, and performing musician in the vein of DMB meets Clapton and Hendrix based on Long Island, NY. His 1st album, entitled "No Turning Back," is dedicated to his father who passed away as music has become his best therapy in dealing with his loss. Like one fan says, “Archdeacon has a way of writing songs that can be uplifting and inspiring...you owe it to yourself to check out this talented, versatile song weaver." A few years ago he had the opportunity and privilege to sing the National Anthem at MetLife Stadium for Monster Jam in front of about 50,000 people. Here's the video:

His MAIN passion in life is MUSIC and strongly believes that if we all help each other out in life you really can’t go wrong because we will all benefit in the long run. He enjoys motivating others to do their very best in life as you only get back what you put into it.

Archdeacon has just recently released his 2nd original album entitled, “Frame of Mind.” (recorded at PMA Studios). Here are a couple of "Behind the Scenes" videos from the studio:
"GREAT Recording, well done, heartfelt, well thought out songs, great production, and overall it's an album that for me is a privilege to have in my collection."
-Rocky (WBAB 102.3)
"With "Frame of Mind" Steve Archdeacon has found his niche. The life experience shows on this album, he shares his carpe diem philosophy on “No Regrets,” creates a feel good anthem with “Living the Dream,” and inspires us to turn the page with “A New Chapter."
-Jeff Walker (Lyricist/Musician)--"Frame of Mind" Album Review
“I very much enjoyed Archdeacon’s album as a testament to his story, and his expression. It’s definitely a strong calling card for him as a songwriter, recording artist, and producer.”
