I was born in 1998 and have lived in Tucson, Arizona for my entire life. I had a variety of interests growing up, from ventriloquism and magic tricks to Linux and typewriters. In addition, I had grand delusions of being an author, which led to the creation of a blog. Thus, here we are.

I am a Reformed Christian, which means first and foremost that I believe the gospel, which is that Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ, who was God in human flesh, lived a perfect life and died a gruesome death to save me from my sins. He was raised to life on the third day, and ascended into heaven, where he sits at the right hand of the Father, interceding on behalf of his people here on earth. Being Reformed means that in my worship, doctrine, and the practice of my faith, I follow the great tradition that grew from the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century. I believe the Reformed tradition to be nearest to what the Bible, God’s Word, proclaims concerning those truths.

I am a musician. I began piano lessons at the age of 9, joined the choir in middle school, and began composing and arranging in high school. By the time I graduated, I knew I wanted to pursue music as a career. Currently, I am a music composition major at The Master’s University in Santa Clarita, California, hoping to graduate in the spring of 2020. It is my passion to see Jesus Christ honored in all areas of my life, especially in my music. Many of the compositions I write are on sacred themes or texts, but even for those that have secular texts, I strive for excellency. My Lord deserves nothing less than my best.

While this website started as a simple blog, it has since grown to also include my music, under the banner of Midtown Music Publishing, where I am the editor in chief. If you’d like to connect with me about my music or anything I’ve written on the blog, send me an email at jay.nelsestuen@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
