Artist Biography:
Rooted in memories of climbing trees and dancing to Johnny Cash with her grandfather as a kid in North Carolina, Steph writes about place and the transient idea that is home. Personalities reflect her inspiration: the plight of a coal miner, the defiance of a cross-dressing, Victorian cowgirl, the scorned lover. Other songs—the more tragic, emotional ones—unleash a piercing moan that hits harder, like a cast iron pan dropped on the kitchen floor, throttling with a resounding pulse long after the music is over.
