BIOGRAPHY (Written by Meghan Wink)
Stephan Plummer has such a broad range of musical influences that it crosses all styles and genres from soul, rhythm and blues, gospel to ballads but at the bottom of it all is a soulful heartfelt message.
Her lyrics are as impressive as her varied vocals. She can belt out a ballad and then keep the listener spellbound with a whisper. As an added bonus, she is also an accomplished rhythm guitarist who can accompany herself and others brilliantly.
Born in Patsy Clines hometown of Winchester, Virginia, one can almost hear the rich timber of Ms. Clines effortless vocals in Stephan's voice. Somehow it seems fitting that two strong and talented women should come from the same roots.
Stephan's roots in music are deep and broad. She is the 12th child of 13 in a musically gifted family. One family member even played as a regular musician for the Grand 'Ole Opry.
Stephan has been writing, playing guitar and performing since the age of 9. Her experience is obvious when she takes a stage. She is warm and poised and audiences are mesmerized by her presence.
Her first CD, "Pattern of Love", is a tribute album to her Mother. She said, "this album was inspired by my Mother, Mary Plummer. I wanted to dedicate a song to every one of my siblings. Afterall, if she could bring 13 lives onto the earth in a period of 25 years, the least I could do was birth 13 songs in four months."
On this album, she was accompanied by a very impressive list of fellow performers. Accomplished violinist Geoffrey Castle of Children of the Revolution Fame, cellist Roberta Downey from the Seattle Symphony, pianist Jal Feldman and pianist and award-winning composer Jeanette Alexander who she collaborated with on the lyrics of the bonus track, "Peaceful Path."
This album is a masterpiece with master musicians that make it come alive. She is currently is studio composing her second album. She has performed live on KIXI radio station, at Benaroya Hall in Seattle and various venues and churches throughout the Northwest and across the United States. She played on Seattle's own streets as a street performer for 10 years and was a regular at the Pike Place Market. "I once was tipped big by Chris Novoselic, bass guitarist of Nirvana, and some of the best music I've ever heard was produced on the streets."
"I feel blessed to finally share my gift of music to a broader audience. I have been given so many blessings and wonderful people to work with."
"At 44 years old, I hope to inspire others as I have been inspired to live my life as a tribute to the idea that God can do anything at any time.
