Stephanie Dosen
Ghosts, Mice & Vagabonds

On her newest release, Milwaukee’s Stephanie Dosen delivers the clear, delicate voice of a quiet Sinead O’Connor, the ethereal poetry of Joni Mitchell and the soft pop strains of the Sundays. Acoustic guitar, keyboards, synths, bass and drums all chip in to make Ghosts, Mice & Vagabonds shine with a moonlit glow. Dosen serenades us with sad situations, but always adds a positive twist. On “Song of the Maydoves” she sings as someone who has died, trying to comfort the living: “Don’t be sad / I’ll be your angel forever now.” With her whispery voice and soothing songs, Dosen will assuage your melancholy moods and gently offer comfort.
