LOS ANGELES, CA, August 30, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Stevie Pre's new album, "New Jerusalem I Apologize for Last Efforts" has been a long time coming, after 20,000 hours of experiments gone wrong, he started to find his own voice. In the end, his dedication paid off, and led to his fully realized vision for his masterwork. Listeners will no doubt think his efforts have paid off as they listen to the dreamy, laid back tracks.
"New Jerusalem I Apologize For My Last Efforts" is a testament to what happens when an artist takes full control of the creative process and sees it through conception to completion. Stevie labored over every second of the album, the production, singing, beats, scratches, mixing and mastering were entirely his work.
"I thought taking the mad scientist approach of long hours would work, but I needed to get my life together and live more. Then started to cook from that balanced angle," says Stevie when asked about his creative process.
Stevie is able to conceive of and execute full albums from a lifetime steeped in music. Not only does he have the technical skills to play music from his high school days of playing guitar in a hardcore band and his beat making days in college; he is also well versed in the ins and outs of the music industry from his days in the hip hop group Babbletron. With this new stage of his career, Stevie rolls all of his talents, professional knowledge and life experience into his work.

Stevie also maintains a busy performance schedule taking the stage with Beat Life collective in Asheville, North Carolina.
