About the Producer

Stevie

Stevie ‘Wutnot’ Bereza has been recording original compositions of his own, and of his friends, since 1995.  He has developed his supportive coaching style and sensitive ears through numerous recording sessions with many friends and collaborators, who have appreciated his musical contributions and ‘sound’ advice over the years.  As a Producer, Stevie has progressed and tuned his recording skills over time by using all types of equipment—ranging from the old ‘4-track’ cassette recorders right up through the modern day use of computers and multi-tracking digital software.

Stevie’s band is “Stevie and the Wutnots”, which continually evolves and changes, depending on who is around, what instruments they play, and what they can contribute to a song or a recording.  Some song files from band members (the Wutnots) are now being recorded and shared across great distances via the internet.

In his previous life, Stevie has been a teacher of English Literature and Drama in numerous international schools around the world—in the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Mongolia, Tanzania, Guatemala… and he even taught in Ontario!  As a Drama teacher, Stevie has directed and prepared sound recordings for several musical variety shows and plays that were successfully performed by students for the local communities.  He cherishes all of the wonderful friends he has made, and all of the amazing experiences he has had in his travels.

Stevie lives at the cottage/studio with his wife Marion, and two lovely and gentle Alaskan Huskies named Niki and Rory.  
They have been settled in Madawaska since 2007.
