It’s always great, when listening to new music for the first time, to know that the performer has pedigree. In an online musical environment filled with all sorts of artists, someone like Stephanie Sounds stands out thanks to her background. Starting at nine years old, she was part of the acclaimed London Community Gospel Choir, and began touring with them at the tender age of eleven.
This background stands her in excellent stead as she pursues a solo career, and the quality of her vocal shines through with the release of her single ‘Much Better’. Watch here. In other hands, this could be a slight, flimsy slice of pop music. However, the power and soul in Stephanie Sounds’ voice ensures this lands a cut above many of her independent contemporaries. The single is released on September 15th, shortly followed by the album of the same name on October 6th.
