An Inspired Performer
Since his first album release, Seeds of Peace, in 1980, through his current CD (11th) Flow, Stephen has established himself as an inspired performer and veteran poet/spokesman of the times. He has authored “The Art of Peace” (New Paradigm Books) and “The Call to Interfaith”, and has performed and spoken widely across the US and abroad. “Flow” is a selection of original orchestrated, melodic guitar compositions with guest recording artists. The featured track is “Jerusalem Prayer”, which has become the soundtrack for a film in development by that same title which forms the foundation for The Jerusalem Prayer Project,a music, film, and multimedia venture, of which Stephen is the founder and executive director/producer.
“Tonight at 11:58 I am sitting here listening to your new CD… Shalom As-salāmu ʿalaykum Dona Nobis Pacem (Translation: Peace, Peace be upon you, Grant us peace)
To you, Stephen, it is beautiful.”

“Flow weaves its spell from the very first haunting notes of Jerusalem Prayer. This impressive collection of original orchestrated songs from Stephen Longfellow Fiske showcases his innovative compositions and artful musicianship. Enhanced by a circle of other very talented musicians and performers, Flow evokes deep emotions, culminating in the beautiful Peace of Prayer, which caps off a sublime, moving, and enjoyable listening experience.”
