Indie / Pop / Acoustic - Wisconsin, USA
Stephanie Dosen grew up on a peacock farm in Wisconsin. One day while sifting through flotsam in the attic, Stephanie found an old guitar covered in dust. It was her secret prize. During the feather harvest while everyone was busy, Stephanie would sneak up into the attic to write songs for boys at school. She would practice singing them to her two favorite pets, a swan and a fox.
They wanted to be a good audience so they clapped with their eyes. Stephanie now writes for ghosts, mostly because they have proven nicer than boys. These days her favorite pet is a rusty tape player named jean-pierre that follows her everywhere. He has made it through 7 states and 2 minor sets of injuries but still holds onto her twilight written songs with happiness.
Today the influence of the nightly peacock mewing and swan swimming can still be heard in her music. Paste magazine says, “Stephanie Dosen delivers the clear delicate voice of a quiet Sinéad O’Connor, the ethereal poetry of Joni Mitchell and the soft pop strains of The Sundays…(her record) shines with a moonlit glow.” Her songs have also been featured on several television shows such as Numbers on CBS and Dawson’s Creek. No one seems to really notice that all she ever listened to was Olivia Newton John.
Her new record 'A Lily for the Spectre' is filled with driving cradlesongs for ghosts gone astray. She has recently teamed horses with Simon Raymonde (Bella Union, Cocteau Twins) who blesses a lily for the spectre with bass and filigree sounds for lost peacocks.
