STEVAN CARTER has been one of South Florida’s most respected musicians for the past 25 years. He has performed at many of the finest venues in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Palm Beach.
A native Floridian born in Fort Lauderdale, Stevan began playing the guitar in 1981, and soon took to the road with “Hollywood Dream,” a Naples-based rock band, opening up for Joan Jett and The Blackhearts and playing all over the southeastern U.S.
He returned to South Florida in 1988, and has been performing ever since, with notable artists like Brad Raker, Ruby Baker, Lauren Carter, Orlando Penate, and many others. In 2012, Stevan founded “The Crush,” a high energy dance/rock band regarded as one of the finest in South Florida.
Now a member of Wildfire, Stevan is excited about the possibilities of playing with the outstanding group of musicians that make up The Wildfire Band.

“Clearly a gifted guitarist.”
