Hailing from Cork in Ireland, in 2015 Stephanie released an emotionally powerful song and video, ‘Please Don’t Go’, about her brother who, sadly, died of cancer. The video and song quickly went viral and notched up a few million views online. Since then Stephanie’s career has been going from strength to strength and after Donovan and his wife Linda saw her at a concert in Ireland they invited her to perform at the Golden Stone tribute concert for Brian Jones.
I have always been a musician, a writer and composer with some music in film and documentaries. But I work mostly in film and multimedia. At a certain point – if doors are opening like they seem to with this project – you have to put your ego aside and listen to what people are feeding back to you. I hope ‘An Unusual Life’ is a result of that, of a kid watching and listening, but after that talking mostly about other people and their behaviour, not actually about myself much at all.
