Since 2013, Stef has been collaborating with the compelling young folk songwriter Susannah Austin – daughter of renowned singer/songwriter Claire Hamill – playing keys, singing backing vocals and co-arranging piano-led versions of her songs for live shows.
Susannah has been likened to Joni Mitchell, Sandy Denny and Stevie Nicks, and has been described as having “soaring, ethereal female vocals that bring tons of warmth” (Pure Groove). Her lyrics, like Mitchell and Denny, use imagery and word-play to draw listeners into deeply affecting worlds, where fantasy and mystery intermingle with simple, honest emotions and universal themes that everybody can relate to.
