Steph Stewart and the boyfriends

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. [+]
