Born in Minneapolis, MN, Stephen moved to New York City as a student nearly two decades ago, earning a masters degree in Classical Guitar performance from the Manhattan School of Music. After spending many years performing classical, experimental, and electronic music – most notably as guitarist, composer and bandleader for the ensemble Redhooker, his newest project, Stephen Karl & Handsome Animals, finds him returning to the roots of his musical interests, exploring songwriting as storytelling in the vein of hometown heroes Bob Dylan, the Replacements, and Prince. Years of living in New York have provided fertile ground for his narratives, whether it’s the simple and universal pain of heartbreak or an only-in-NYC night that ends in a make-out session with Cyndi Lauper.

Stephen is backed by a group of some of Brooklyn’s finest veteran musicians who play not only with seasoned virtuosity, but also the energy and vibe of five great friends who love making music together.

“Mr. Griesgraber’s unselfish pen is Redhooker’s most potent asset.”
Steve Smith – New York Times
