This week’s Pick of the Week was designed for musician Stefan Nagy. His simple and classic design was printed on our white delrin picks. Stefan Nagy is a Canadian Singer/Songwriter hailing from Montreal. After finding his father’s hand-crafted Spanish acoustic guitar with only 1 string on it in the closet at age 9, his talent quickly gained recognition with his fast-learning capabilities, nimble fingers and an inclined ear. Self-taught and influenced by everything from the Classic Beatles, Zeppelin, Tom Petty and Steve Miller to bands like Guns N Roses, RHCP, Nirvana and Sublime, Stefan soon developed a very unique and versatile style and sound. By the age of 15, Nagy had already played a variety of shows in front of crowds by the hundreds even landing a set in the local outdoor Canada day festivities where he covered songs by the great Neil Young and C.C.R. as well as originals. In 1999 he released a debut album with the punk-rock trio Antisocial called ‘Antisocial Society’ and went on tearing up the Montreal punk-rock/hard-core scene. After 5 years, 2 Bassists, a whole lot of shows and a conflict of interests, the band was forced to split , so Nagy packed up his broken-neck Fender acoustic guitar and hit the road in search of inspiration traveling the west-coast, Canadian Rockies and the Yukon, living on the road in between. Upon returning to Montreal in 2009 to work on a solo project, Nagy began producing his debut solo acoustic folk/rock album influenced by his travels, relationships and the will to succeed. Now on the road and working on the release of his debut album ‘Scattered Embers’, Nagy is playing live performances and is currently at the promotional stage gaining press interest as well as regular plays on CBC Radio3 among others.
