Joscho Stephan has shaped modern gypsy swing like no other with his playing: With his authentic tone, harmonic sophistication and rhythmic flair, but above all with his breathtaking solo technique, Stephan has earned himself an outstanding reputation on the international guitar scene. He knows like no other how to stand out from the multitude of current Gypsy Swing adaptations by combining Gypsy Swing with Latin, classical and rock alongside the many interpretations of the genre's well-known classics. This shows Stephan's strength as a creative visionary. And this inspires young and old concert audiences alike. Joscho's YouTube version of "Hey Joe" has now cracked the 1 million mark.

A total of 4 of Joscho ́s albums were nominated for the German Record Critics' Award. The production "Paris - Berlin" (2018) was recorded as a direct-to-disc record production at Hansa Studios Berlin, where many of David Bowie's recordings were made.
