The Colorful Quiet is the recording/performing name of Stephen Webster, a singer-songwriter originally from Jacksonville, Florida. Though he often performs live acoustic shows, most of his efforts thus far have been focused on writing and recording.
He produced and released his 1st album, The Sun is Melting in March 2006, which includes “Survival”, a song that has spent over 30 weeks on the iTunes Top 100 Folk Chart (reaching a high of 42). It was also featured on NPR’s Open Mic in April 2007, as well as being named a top 15 finalist in American Songwriter Magazine’s Craft of Music CD Compilation Contest in September 2007.
Sounds of the Countryside, his 2nd album, was released in August 2007 and was an appropriate follow-up to “Sun”. Many of the songs are a bit more ‘country-folk’, in part due to the fact that he enlisted a few musician friends to play such instruments as fiddle, dobro, and pedal steel.
As of early 2008, Stephen has been focusing on several recording projects that have been in the works for quite awhile, including a lo-fi album of songs written during his high school years, as well as a few other projects written from 2001-2005.
In 2010 he released his next album The Sun Is Melting and followed that with Screams.
