Stephen Salewon is a singer/songwriter. Through the influence from likes of Kings of Leon, KT Tunstall, Michael Buble, and Coldplay, his Indie Pop-Blues genre has taken a unique character of its own; sugar-coated with a soulful and festive ambiance. Due to his personal life journeys and character, his lyrics acknowledges and proclaims the innate desire of the human heart. You will find out by listening to his tunes; the melody, passion, sincerity, abstraction, and yet its simplicity will leave you speechless. His catchy tunes will make you want to listen to it all over and over again. Isn't that what music is all about? Don't we all want to relate to someone-else's story? Well guess what, you're at the right place. http://www.reverbnation.com/stephensalewon
The net proceeds from Tour de Palate will be donated to the Go Mitch Go Foundation to continue the mission to find a cure for blood cancers and lymphomas, and assist with patient services. Every 4 minutes, someone in the US is diagnosed with a blood cancer. Every 10 minutes, someone loses their battle with the disease. This event is the only gala in support of the fight against blood cancers in Oklahoma and in its first five years has raised over $200,000 for the Society. We are relentless in our efforts to find a cure.
We are hoping to assist the Go Mitch Go Foundation in raising funds to create an Leukemia & Lymphoma Society research grant in Mitchell's name. Mitch lost his battle to leukemia, but his final words were "Keep Fighting!". For more information on the 501(c)3 Go Mitch Go Foundation, go to gomitchgo.com.
