Steph is a regular and popular performer with the Apollo Big Band but she has also appeared in many venues around south East England.

Steph has sung alongside many great muscians, artists and bands and has had the pleasure of performing with Phil Veacock, Miles Lovettand the National Jazz Orchesttra.

In addition to singing Steph has produced and performed many sell-out shows for the Hungerford Arts Festival, featured at the Rye International Jazz Festival and also writes her own songs which she performs on ukelele.
