Alain Stephens is a graduate of the University of North Texas and a veteran of two of the U.S. armed forces: he served both in the Coast Guard and the Air Force. Alain helped craft the Standard’s sound early on — bringing a youthful levity to brighten the sound. He’s a people person who’s great at digging up stories — a skill he thinks is inspired from his days conducting search-and-rescue operations. Alain loves comic books, running and is an avid film buff.
