Meet Your Coach

Hi, my name is Steve Banik.  I own and operate a mobile DJ and music production company called Stacktrace Music, LLC.

I am a member of a hip hop production group called The Vintage Vxndals.

In the early 2000’s I was based in Nashville where I was the touring keyboard player for several major label recording artists.  By 2006 I had performed on the Tonight Show, Good Morning America, the Country Music Awards and the Grand Ole Opry.

In May of 2019, I landed my first Billboard #1 as a co-writer on rapper Logic’s “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” album, a release which was RIAA-certified gold in 2021.  I have also produced music for Nas, Jack Harlow, Wiz Khalifa, Russ, Ari Lennox and many others.

I have a strong desire to help people succeed in the music and tech industries.

Areas Of Your Career I Focus On

  • Music Production
  • Music Theory
  • Publishing Administration
  • YouTube

Feel Confident About Chasing Your Music Career Dreams

I'm a business-savvy musician who

Ken Found Clarity and a Path Forward:

“I used to work as a full time musician, but pulled back to (very) part time for a good decade or so. Recently I’ve had a desire to return professionally back to music, but didn’t really know where to start. I felt lonely and overwhelming, like it was too much to do for just one person.

My search for music career coaching lead me to Eleven. I started my coaching sessions focused on life planning, and it lead me to start some important conversations with people that I had been putting off for a long time. Once I had those conversations, I gained all kinds of clarity regarding what I truly wanted. Obstacles dissolved and suddenly I had a path forward.

Today I’m making steady progress towards my goal. Now when I stagnate, I notice it, and make a conscious effort to take an action that keeps me moving forward. I treat myself as an entrepreneur and talk about my work with others in the same way. That shift in thinking has helped me realize my agency in work and life.”
