Stefan Mahendra is a South East London bred musician that has established himself as an anomaly amongst the modern-day R&B artist. Half Sri Lankan and half German, Mahendra proudly represents his roots, with his wide and varied influences stemming from his rich cultural backgrounds and early exposure to gospel music in the church. From there, his love of Soul, R&B, and Motown grew immeasurably, setting the tone for what his career is today. With a polished and refined craft that he has made his own, he continues to push the boundary of his original music. He has a diverse palette of influences including D'angelo, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, John Legend.
