Stephen Alexandersen – Let The Music Move Me – 1977

There’s not a whole lot out there about Stephen and this was his only album. I did find that he’s still out there doing music in Chicago so there’s that but not much more. So we will discuss the album instead of some long bio. The album has an excellent soul feel. I have discovered that through the late 70’s early 80’s there were some excellent white soul artists and Stephen is one of them. This is a style of music I wasn’t very familiar with in the 80’s as it wasn’t readily available on our local Christian record store. I’m guessing this was somewhat normal in towns like mine which were predominately white. Anyway this is a great album and I really enjoyed it. One point of trivia about the album is that it was pressed on white vinyl. This label only ever put out one other album and it was on white vinyl too. I guess it was a play on their name White Horse Records. Odd choice though because if you’re a tiny label generally you don’t want to do things that increased your costs.

  1. Hi Ray –

    Thanks so much for the nice shout out about my very first album! Here’s a thumbnail encapsulation of my autobiography for your info: I became a Christian at the age of 16 at the Billy Graham crusade in Chicago, and that’s what kick started not only my walk with the Lord, but my involvement in music (both Christian and secular). I’ve been in and out of contemporary Christian music since 1972, really, and have kept my hand in music since those days in one way or another as a singer, songwriter, choir director, producer, arranger and multi instrumentalist. During all of these years, I’ve done a lot of live and session work. At the present time, I actually had 10 albums out on streaming services worldwide and I’m presently working on my next release. I’m a bit long in the tooth to be on the road anymore, but I’m continuing to sing, write, produce and record. You can access my Facebook page at

    God bless you!
