Stephen Paul Taylor is a Post-Synthpop-Retrowave musician living in Berlin, Germany. He is the glittery, glammed-up lovechild of Depeche Mode and the B52s. His live shows are high-energy and feature costume changes set to a “costume change song”. The songs are hooky pop songs with sing-along choruses and choreographed dance moves.

SPT moved from Planet Party to Berlin and went viral in 2015 with his world-anthem, “Everybody Knows S**t’s F****d”. He has played in several well-known Berlin clubs as and has toured over 14 European countries in the last three years. He appeared on Das Supertalent in 2015, his music was used in the very first Spotify Ad Campaign in Germany, he was featured on Arte, Die Welt, RBB, RTL2, Joiz.de TV, Netz-O-Rama (Germany’s “Comedy Central”) and the clip of SPT that went viral is currently a popular GIF on Facebook. He is represented by Budde Music and Random Noize. He has also accured over 4 million views on his YouTube videos.
