Stephen Medd’s songwriting is influenced by the 60’s North American and British folk music: musicians like Pete Seeger; The Chad Mitchell Trio; Peter, Paul and Mary; The Clancy Brothers; and Gordon Lightfoot to name a few. The inspiration for Stephen’s songs lies in the peoples who settled the Kingston and Bay of Quinte regions of Lake Ontario; and in the wild and beautiful Canadian wilderness that he traveled as an exploration geologist. Stephen assisted Avril Lavigne in her early development by writing 3 songs for her that were Avril’s first-ever studio recordings. In 2017 Stephen performed on the main stage at the Shelter Valley Folk Festival as a finalist in a songwriitng contest to promote the event. He is currently performing and recording a collection of historical ballads he has written about the forgotten stories of our region.
