Steph Stewart is haunting, post-Appalachain lull married to sweet and smoky honky-tonk. Her ethereal twang feeds an audience, easing into the gut like honey, accented by hoppy mandolin picking and bright fiddle melodies. Her boyfriends include Omar Ruiz-Lopez (fiddle, mandolin, backing vocals), Mario Arnez (lead guitar, backing vocals), Nicholas Vandenberg (upright bass, backing vocals). Together, Steph and her boyfriends deliver a haunting sound both unique and strangely familiar, fusing old Appalachia and top-shelf Americana.
