2015-present
Both Stephen and Snake have been active in music for quite a while. These pages present a Discography of their recordings and compositions, both separately and together, with audio clips that you can play to hear how their music has evolved (click on the blue song titles). We've tried to keep this in a more-or-less chronological order by release date although this may not be completely accurate, particularly in the case of re-releases.

Please note that, although we'd like very much to be able to provide full, downloadable songs, in many cases copyright restrictions prohibit us from doing so. In these cases we're limited to providing shorter clips.
