Our Story

Hello, My name is Stephen Pappas and I am the son of Mary Pappas, six time cancer survivor and author of “Courage Hope and Healing”. Centre Piece is a progressive rock outfit founded between my twin brother Michael and myself. As an artist I see Centre Piece as a legacy project and an outlet to share my faith and testimony. I took my first steps as an international recording artist and produced and arranged my first album called Lullaby. It is a concept album written during my mothers last battle with cancer before she passed away march 2nd of 2020. She was a leader to a generation and ministered to people all over the world. My mission with Centre Piece is to continue my mothers work through the transparency of my testimony for a world wide audience through the music ministry.


 Lullaby was mixed and mastered by Josh Roman and I at Mind Rocket Recording Studio. This album features support from Randy Slaugh whom is a grammy nominated producer and arranger located out of Salt Lake City and is well known for his work with acts ranging from Periphery to David Archuleta. I am also a proud alumni of Daniel Tompkins Vocal Coaching Academy. I studied the voice under Daniel Tompkins for three years and took private lessons. Daniel Is also the singer for TesseracT and member of the cross continental band White Moth black Butterfly along with Randy Slaugh.

My brother and myself grew up in a musical/artistic home. My twin brother Michael is the featured drummer and percussionist for Centre Piece. My father is a classical guitar instructor and taught at Youngstown State University at the Dana School of music. He has an instrumental guitar album out called Refuge. Aside from being an author my mother was also a actress and played a role in the 2008 film Fine Tune. I also serve on the music ministry staff at Victory Christian Center in Coitsville Ohio. Its an honor to serve at my mom's home church and to be a member for over 30 years. My passion is songwriting, arranging and producing albums. As a producer, I look forward to adding value to the careers of artists and bands.
