In the 1950′s, violin virtuoso Steven Staryk performed all of the favorites of classical repertoire canon, and many of them are forever captured in the Fervor Records archives.
Bach’s Sonata in G Major is one of the selections from the Canadian phenome and will be featured in tomorrow night’s episode of Grimm, NBC’s critically acclaimed fantasy/cop drama hybrid series.
Known as one of famed Symphony Six in the McCarthy era, Steven Staryk and 5 touring colleagues were denied entrance into the U.S. without explanation, in what became a hotly debated public controversy circa 1952. His music however, has made it onto the airwaves across the nation.

Tonight’s episode “One More Weekend With You” will feature a song from the Fervor Vintage catalog tonight. The track “Workin’ Overtime” by 1970′s vocal powerhouse and guitarist extraordinaire Craig Marsden is reminiscent of the progressive rock band Yes, and lyrically couldn’t be more appropriate.

In 2012, he joined the Fervor Vintage Masters label to showcase his original material collection, and this will be his television debut.
