The album featuries some of the best in their genres: Soul Diva Jocelyn Brown, Sista Monica Parker, Tony Lindsay, Keith Harris, D'Layna, Funk Dogg, Cooley, Jaroslav Jakubovic, The Blues Brothers Horns, The Memphis Horns, Joe Vitale, Thiago Pinheiro, Butch Taylor, Tyrone Chase, Anthony Vitti, Sal Giorgiani, Jennifer Cosaro, Ralph Rosen, Delicious Allstars, Sanj Sen and Chuck Webb, the album's style is a mix of several genres, such as Soul, Blues, Jazz, Latin and the many other influences that make Funk music what it is.

About the What The Funk? CD Release:

"What The Funk?" embodies the infuences of Bootsy Collins, Funkadelic, Sly & The Family Stone, Tower of Power, Al Green, Bobby Bland, Marvin Gaye and others. ‘What The Funk?’ was written and recorded over a two year period in (New York - LA - Atlanta - United Kingdom - Nashville - Barbados - Boston), and features Stevie with a fabulous lineup of guest artists and musicians.

Although titled What The Funk?, the album is not entirely comprised of funk tunes. Says Stevie, "The album is a mix of funk, soul, jazz, latin, blues, with rock overtones blended throughout the tracks. Although this is me doin' my thing, me being me, the album pays homage to some of my inspirations and influences as a vocalist and drummer such as Clyde Stubblefield, Tower of Power, Bootsy Collins and P-Funk, Al Green, Bobby Bland, George Clinton, Funkadelic, Sly & The Family Stone, James Brown, Toots Thielemans, Cold Blood, George Duke, Marvin Gaye, Junior Walker, Jimi Hendrix and others. There is a little something here for everyone. You get the funk, and then some!"

With soulful vocals, deep drivin' bass, slick guitars, a big~n~tight in your face horn section, smooth Fender Rhodes, super-funky drums, Hammond B-3 organ and clavinet, the heavy guns on this new album fire with all barrels.
