In 2019, Stephanie joined The Dyr Sister; a trio combining contemporary folk with post-hip-hop and electronic music genres, layered with haunting and ethereal vocal harmonies. In the same year, Stephanie began learning jazz, improvisation, and composition, completing a master’s at the University of Hull in 2021. In 2022, Stephanie began performing original songs for voice and harp in a neo-soul style and was later accepted onto the Composer-Curator scheme by Sound and Music, where she will begin combining improvisation with sound manipulation using Ableton. During the festive period at Trinity Market, Stephanie will perform a range of classic Christmas tunes and pop songs in a free, neo-jazz style. Expect to have your heart warmed by the soothing harmonies of the harp, with added vocals for that extra sparkle.’
