Biography

Stephanie O’Brien was born and raised in London, England. Like most children she grew up listening to whatever music was being played at home. Luckily, her parents had a great vinyl record collection, which over time proved to have a lasting influence on Stephanie’s musical tastes. Many of those early influences have stayed with her, Carole King, Dusty Springfield (aka Mary O’Brien, no relation) The Supremes and Aretha Franklin to name just a few.

As a child, Stephanie learnt to play a number of musical instruments-­‐ violin, piano and harp. However it was in her first year of high school that a teacher discovered that Stephanie had a rich singing voice and gave her a part in the annual school musical. Encouraged by this experience, Stephanie began taking singing seriously, in her teens she developed a taste for Jazz and immersed herself in the music of all the Jazz greats, Sarah Vaughan, Chet Baker and Ella Fitzgerald. She would go on to perform locally in a number of Jazz bands and it was this love of singing Jazz that eventually took her to Trinity College of Music in London.

At college Stephanie hooked up with Marcella Puppini and Kate Mullins to form the close harmony singing trio, The Puppini Sisters. Almost immediately the girls were signed to a major label, Universal Music, college was ditched and from there followed great success.
