Stephanie O'Brien, Anderson & Petty, SONDHEIM: MEN and More Set for St. James Studio, March 2014
St. James Studio has announced its March 2014 events and performances. Details below!
Saturday 01 March at 8pm
Stephanie O'Brien is a singer-songwriter whose music shares something heart achingly real and raw. Performing tracks from her debut EP 'Leave Your Heart at the Door', with intensity and intimacy, her solo live performance encapsulates a very personal journey and transformation (O'Brien left acclaimed harmony group The Puppini Sisters to pursue a career as a solo artist). Guitarist, violinist and vocalist, O'Brien's sound is alternative pop, with folk and jazz sensibilities and possesses classic undertones evocative of early influences from Sarah Vaughan to Jeff Buckley.
