biography

Mesmerising, mysterious and carrying a bold femininity in her style and sound - Stephanie O is a singer-songwriter and musician from London.

Known to fans as Stephanie O or by her full name Stephanie O’Brien - she came to the music scene in her teens as founding member of Universal signed pop-harmony band The Puppini Sisters; before leaving several years later with a drive to strike out on her own.

Having worked alongside artists such as Michael Buble, Carole King, Cindy Lauper and toured all over the world; her eclectic influences and experiences percolate her music. But like her heroes, whom include Jeff Buckley and Portishead, Stephanie O can’t be pigeon holed. Her two years spent away from the swing-pop machine have seen her develop a new style akin to a certain wave of multi instrumentalists captivating audiences right now such as Lo-Fang and Jack Garratt - developing an edge, grit and independence that resonates through her new music.

 Her live shows see her combine electric guitar, percussion and electronic flourishes with symphonic soundscapes created on her violin and layered vocal harmonies. It is a unique method of live looping - instinctive and spontaneous that has seen this new artist rise to our attention. 

Her debut Leave Your Heart at the Door EP came out on indie label Loop the Loop in the winter of 2014, ahead of a flourish of festivals and gigs across the UK and hometown of London - which saw her performing alongside Jack Garratt, MØ and Kimberly Anne. 

Currently on course to release her second EP entitled ALIVE to a steadily growing fan-base, her melancholic-electronica caught the attention of producers Dennis White (ThermalBear) and Tom Cameron (Arrows Down), resulting in a huge departure from the Lo-Fi, intimate tone of her first studio recording, to something much heavier and commanding. 

Alive EP is set for release July 20th '15 on Loop the Loop Records.
