During the summer of 2010, Steph Macpherson found herself with a performance schedule that included Vancouver’s Lilith Fair, Victoria’s Blue Sky Festival, Rifflandia Festival, and The Peak 100.5 FM & Music BC’s Peak Performance Project Showcase. Since releasing her EP less than a year ago she has opened for Sarah McLachlan, Sheryl Crow, Sugarland, Colbie Caillat, Erykah Badu, Tom Cochrane, Colin James, and Men Without Hats.
Steph recently completed an October tour of BC & Alberta and a performance at the 2010 Western Canadian Music Awards Showcase – BreakOutWest to promote her EP To You. She has toured Western Canada in the past, and made her way as far as East as Montreal.
Her catchy indie folk/pop music has received airplay on CBC radio and Vancouver’s The Peak 100.5 FM; she has also received interviews and/or on-air performances with CTV News, eTalk Daily, The Peak 100.5, and Calgary’s Mix 97.7.
The BC born Kiwi-Canadian singer-songwriter began her endeavor into the world of music at the early age of four. After seeing The Little Mermaid for the first time, she knew she wanted to be a singing mermaid. When she failed to grow a fin, she picked up a guitar, turned to songwriting, and began pursuing music as a human in her hometown of Victoria, B.C. She has since showcased on stages along side the likes of Jesse Winchester, Leeroy Stagger, Greg Macpherson, Kinnie Starr, Raising the Fawn, and Yukon Blonde, as well as local loves Aidan Knight, Vince Vaccaro, Maurice, and Acres of Lions. She’s also an in-demand backup vocalist, recording on Artists’ tracks; including Vince Vaccaro’s Animals, and Costa Rica, and Mike Edel’s The Two of Us.
Steph has written/recorded two E.P.'s: To You (2009), recorded at Infinity Studios Victoria, B.C. with friend and producer Jason Cook (also produced or engineered: Tal Bachman, Wil & Theset) and "Shapes Only You Can Make" (2005) recorded/produced by Ryan Hauschild (Hannah Georgas, Hey Ocean!, Elias) of Vancouver B.C.
Steph now calls Vancouver home.
