Biography

Steph, The Sapphic Songstress is a Singer/Songwriter/Producer/Fine Artist from P.G. County, Maryland. She began writing music at the tender age of 8, and began producing her own music at age 16. At 18, she decided to move to New York to get her degree in Fine Arts and pursue her music career. Since then, Steph has performed frequently around New York City and across the U.S. in places such as Bowery Poetry Club, Knitting Factory NYC (opening for hip hop sensation CunninLynguists), and Highline Ballroom (with QN5 Music). She also makes frequent cameos on other artists’ projects. In January 2008, she made two appearances on the critically acclaimed QN5 release Sacrifice from fellow Maryland MC Substantial (”My Favorite Things” and “Hood Hope“). She also collaborated with Mr. SOS for his 2009 debut LP How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb (”The Balance” and “Time Capsule“) and appeared on his 2011 mixtape Cassette Verite (“Tired Of Living” produced by Deacon The Villain). More recently, Steph has been working extensively with super duo Bop Alloy. She has made multiple appearances on both of their releases, including their 2010 debut album Substantial and Marcus D are Bop Alloy and 2011's The R&R: Remixes and Revisions. Steph has also worked with Tonedeff, PackFM, Inverse, Cashmere The Professional, George Reefah, Naturel, and many others to name a few.

Steph recently hit a milestone in her career on April 3, 2012 when she released her much-anticipated debut album The SapphicSoul EP via her Twelfth Sign Entertainment imprint. The album features notable acts such as Substantial, Bop Alloy, 4Phor, KIN4LIFE, Javier Starks, Mr. SOS, and Toby (formerly of Inverse). In the summer of 2012, Steph will continue her trend of making more guest appearances with the release of Marcus D’s Melancholy Hopeful album.
