My name is Stephen Bigger. I am a composer, performer, and music producer who owns and operates RockArbor Music (ASCAP) Recording in Santa Cruz, CA. With a catalog of original multi-media works in a variety of genres I’m currently composing musical scores for film and television shows like American Pickers, Discovery Channel, and Animal Planet. In 1992 I received an ASCAP Music Award for my song “Shake This World” which appears on two different musical tributes to Martin Luther King Jr.

I have been full time in the music industry for over 20 years as a staff producer in Nashville, TN and produced over 1500 songs on music row in my time there receiving several national ADDYs for my commercial music. As a freelance producer I have recorded pop, rock, world music, americana, folk, gospel, and the blues.

My background as a music and technology teacher, choir director, worship pastor, and creative arts program director has given me the opportunity to build teams and connections in a variety of projects and presentations.
