Jeremy Stephens returns to Rebel Records with a masterpiece in How I Hear It, his second solo outing for the iconic bluegrass label. This album provides not only an exciting auditory experience, it delivers a musical education as well. One would expect no less from an artist who is a widely-respected musical historian and scholar in addition to being a world-class musician. Stephens, whom bluegrass audiences will recognize through his work with the exciting young traditional band High Fidelity, began his musical journey at the age of five. Growing up in Virginia, Stephens was exposed to the rich musical culture and history of the region. This exposure formed a love and passion for the bluegrass, old-time, and related music which he absorbed. The sounds he heard with his ears have been woven into the fabric of his mind and heart, and translated through his hands.
