Egerton is best known for his work with The Descendents and All, but since both bands have
announced hiatuses, it hasn’t stopped him musically and he is very much involved in the punk
community. After relocating to Tulsa, OK from Ft. Collins, CO, he established Armstrong Recording studio to not only record bands from all genres, but
also to work on his own music. “I’ve been writing tons of music, but haven't had a regular outlet
for all the songs I've come up with,” says Egerton. “Finally, my wife suggested that I ask some of my friends to do the singing, since it's definitely my weak suit.” With that suggestion came
the early stages of The Seven Degrees of Stephen Egerton.
After writing all the music,
playing all the instruments, and even recording all the songs himself, Stephen sent the demos
to friends from his over two decade-plus long career in music. Egerton contacted a number of
musicians to collaborate with, and soon Stephen had vocal contributions from Dan Andriano (Alkaline Trio), Joey Cape (Lagwagon/Me First And The Gimme Gimmes), Mike Herrera (MXPX), Chris Demakes (Less Than Jake), Chad Price (All/Drag The River), Scott Reynolds (All/Steaming Beast) and more.
Egerton left most of the lyrical duties to the talented punk vocalists, and only co-wrote a
handful of the sixteen tracks. Egerton mixed and mastered the album on his own, which allowed
for the consistent sound despite being recorded in over a dozen studios by different technicians
across the country. “I have some seriously talented friends. I'm so proud of this record, and I can't
wait for people to hear it!” he exclaims with a sigh of relief.
