Signed to Hut/Virgin on the strength of a handful of songs presented acapella and delivered by post, Stephanie’s debut album ‘That Girl’ features some of the very songs that made such a huge impression on those who first heard her fledgling demo tape.

Tiny Spark offers the listener an audible sunny summer by the sea, each song like a holiday postcard. Feeling Good, Bon Voyage, Kiss Me Quick and Dreamboat Song take you right to the promenade. Phil Thornalley and Mads Hauge’s accompaniment sparkles every skip of the way, fairground sounds, children’s laughter, birds singing… this is sunshine in a box. On track 10 she sings ‘If I Could … baby I’d bottle it’ I do believe she has! Quite possibly the epic amongst these songs is the album closer ‘Future Come On’ with its huge chorus and rousing call. The album is decorated with high quality photos taken by celebrated photographer Phil Nicholls (Bjork, Prodigy,) and is packaged in a De Luxe high grade card gatefold sleeve. It’s a bright feel good album, perfect listening for a summers day – Carlton Sandercock, Easy Action.
