Cordis Riven Stephen Schuch Chicago , United States Born the tenth of eleven children, music was always a means to find yourself in the crowd. Never lacking the desire to evolve as an artist in general, Stephen started with acting , but ultimately knew in his heart that music and lyrics were his true language . Now as this generation of music has seemed to falter in regards to true musicianship, and originality, he changed his name to Cordis Riven, coming from cor- cordis. Latin for heart of the heart. Which truly is where all things great are created and endure, in the heart.
