Biography

Steph Bowlin has been filling up the air in local coffeehouses/pubs and small venues with her voice since fall of 2003, she is often joined on stage by other local musicians for some well rehearsed fun or even some musical improv, but presents a stellar show all on her own. Steph's voice is used just as much as an instrument as her guitar and she's influenced by voices of Mirah, Mazzy Star, and Cyndi Lauper as well as the song writing of Radiohead, Rainer Maria, and Aimee Mann, She's been compared to Natalie Merchant, Sinead O' Connor, and early Liz Phair.
