Step13 is a solo artist from Brisbane, Australia. Song writer Laurence Stanway plays all the instruments but his passion lays with the guitar…."I see music as an art form free from constraints and social dignities"…Step13 is an unsigned artist and at this stage chooses to stay that way. Step13 got his artist name from a combination of 12 step programs and the days of capitol punishment when there was 13 steps up to the hang mans noose.

I use music as a therapy ; if I didn't play music I would probably go even more crazy?. I grew up listening to Led Zepplin, The Sex Pistols and The Dead Kennedys.

The first instument I learned to play was the Flute. I used to love how Kung Fu would wonder the planet with his bamboo flute, blowing out melodies in times of solice and great soul searching?…To me, music has and always will be a way of getting in touch with that mysterious element that pervades everything.

In finishing, I find it disheartening listening to commercial radio…So much of the music seems to be a contrived attempt…formulised. I really think that music should be heart felt and not shoot from an angle of selling,..thats is my opinion.
