Stephanie Penrose’s new single Oh, My has been released. “This song came about after noticing how often people pretend to be something they are not and show you their colours they only want you to see,” says Stephanie. “In my case the song is about being able to see the truths and choosing to move away from deception.”
Stephanie grew up on a farm in Moore Creek where she learnt music, and was taught to ride horses and drive on the property by her family. She was a competitive rider and hoped to one day represent Australia at the Olympics but during her late teens she was involved in two serious horse accidents which resulted in her losing her beloved horses. This followed with immense emotional trauma and crippling sadness. During the recovery from these events she found her way to heal and strengthen through her love of music.
Since then she has delved deeper into her musical ability by learning the guitar and writing songs. With every door that has closed another has opened for her music. She has been extremely fortunate over the years to have performed to some of Tamworth’s biggest crowds. She was a Grand Finalist in this year’s Toyota Star Maker.
Previous releases include Take Me Home, Don’t Make It Easy and Body Talk. Her music has been influenced by many writers including Foy Vance, Kacey Musgraves and Bruce Springsteen. She aims to have depth and a hook in the songs she writes.
