Stephanie Sounds is an East-London born songstress with the voice of an Angel scarred by life’s harsh realities…. A daughter of the first family of UK Gospel, Stephanie began singing with Europe’s famous London Community Gospel Choir from the tender age of 9 under the watchful eye of her father Rev Bazil Meade. Her earliest touring duties starting at age 11 training in the intense soul-drenched atmosphere that only a gospel choir can deliver and travelling the globe honing her ‘strong soprano with the husky undertone’….
Naturally, at the age of just 19, she began providing backing vocals for some of the world’s leading artists, from Celine Dion and Will Young to Jessie J, Blur, Florence and The Machine and Kasabian. Also touring extensively with Daniel Bedingfield and his chart-topping sister Natasha Bedingfield, Lemar, Jamelia, Westlife and Mcfly. It was her time with dance outfit Faithless that she holds as her dearest though, opening her appetite for real diverse musicality and expression
From the day she first started singing, Stephanie always had more to give, a story to tell. It is then that she would start to pen her thoughts and feelings and bring them to life in song. As she lived her life as daughter, wife and mother in tandem with her colourful career, she experienced some inevitable highs and lows and some truths that would shape her view of a troubled world.
This eclectic sounding album is a candid fusion of all Stephanie’s ‘sounds’ and influences and a vivid portrait of how she wants to tell her story
An honest account of life’s peaks and troughs, a daily battle with depression, self-doubt and relationships.
Stephanie’s music is from her heart, when you hear it, you’ll take a piece of it with you…
