Small is the New Tall

the creative works of Steven W. Fiore | songwriter, designer, etc.


You can consider me a mad-scientist creator of sorts. Essentially, most of what I do always makes perfect sense to me in theory, but often concludes in some kind of allegorical test-tube explosion, leaving me to wash the soot off of my face and waste no time getting fired up about the next concept.

This catchall label will serve as a host for these ambitious endeavors. It might be a makeshift record label for one project or a design studio for the next. Either way, I hope you will find something useful here.

Young Mister is me, Steven Fiore, an established and not-so-established songwriter based in Tryon, North Carolina. These days, I spend a lot of time at home, writing and recording songs in my office/studio self dubbed “The Study”, and sending them out into the world with no expectations whatsoever.



Eat, drink, and make good music.


Not so long ago, I started hosting writing camps at my farm house in the more rural area of Chapel Hill, NC. Thirty-six acres of hilly fields and a 100 year old barn-shack-turned-studio made for a pretty inspiring place to disconnect, relax and then of course, write songs. Now settled deep in the mountains of western North Carolina, I will be reviving the experience with a Blue Ridge twist.

Sporadically throughout the year, I will host 1-2 writers for two days of hiking,
swimming, drinking, eating, and writing when it feels right. 


This is what happens.

Good design is honest. | Dieter Rams


Having taught myself to create my own show posters and album artwork at the age of 18, I developed a passion for clean design that spread to friends, friends of friends, and so on in the years that followed. Though I am no longer in the freelance world, I do still welcome all proposals and would love to collaborate if it makes sense on both sides.

Holler at me. 


okay bye
