STEPH STRINGS (Melbourne, Australia)
Steph Strings is an Australian based singer-songwriter from the beach-side town of San Remo, Victoria who tells a story through her music. With influences from the John Butler Trio, Tash Sultana, Kim Churchill and Ziggy Alberts, Steph’s musical style entails bursts of
percussion alongside Celtic, blues and coastal fingerstyle indie-rock.

In celebration of the recent release of her ‘Wildfire’ EP Steph played multiple sold out headline shows in both Australia and the UK, as well as multiple performances at French Festival Les Escales in Saint-Nazaire in front of huge International crowds.

Early 2022 saw Steph support Kim Churchill on his National tour of Australia playing spectacular venues around the country, shortly before the pair released a duet-song together ‘Please Come Home’. Steph has already performed at a number of festivals including Les Escales (France), Ocean Sounds Festival, Peninsula Picnic Festival and Winter Wine Festival in NSW and later this summer will be playing Queenscliff Music Festival, Handpicked Music Festival, NYE on the Hill and Ocean Sounds Festival.

The first half of 2022 saw Steph release new music with her EP ‘Wildfire’ which included singalong crowd favourite “Dusty Road”, the haunting and powerful ‘Catacombs’, and title track ‘Wildfire’.

Steph’s EP ‘Wildfire’ was released in April 2022 and is available on all major platforms.


Samantha Savage Smith
The key to Smith’s songs is that she has an ability to infuse her songs with a certain timelessness, invoking a familiarity within each listener, while still bringing formidable sense of self to the proceedings. This potent combination of traits belies the eclecticness of her own musical touchstones, which run the gamut from Anita O’Day and Kurt Vile to Land of Talk and Eric’s Trip.
