Auckland musician Stephen Galvin started playing guitar at the age of eight. After high-school bands including the Stephen Galvin Experience in 1971, he established his musical career, playing bass with Gratis Kinetic, a touring rock band, then the resident bands at the Skyline Restaurant in Queenstown, and the now demolished Carlton Hotel in Christchurch. Shifting to Auckland, he played with local musicians Don McGlashan, Phil Broadhurst, Jim Langabeer, and a residency gig with Maree Steinway at the Gables Hotel. Stephen opened a music-teaching studio in 1984 and since then has taught thousands of Auckland musicians singing, bass and guitar.

He also plays with the pop-rock covers band - the Stevie G Band, Crystal Silence Jazz Trio, the Buble experience, Trevor Thwaite's Jazz Septet, the Prohibition Big Band and other acts. His first album was released in 2008 showcasing his songwriting, and his second album Appreciation is soon to be released.
