Steph received a First Class (Hons) degree in BA Music at the University of Leeds before moving to Brighton in 2016 to pursue film music composition at the University of Sussex. While in Brighton, Steph undertook the events management traineeship with Brighton Early Music Festival where she met BREMF co-founder and The Telling's Artistic Director and Soprano Clare Norburn. At the end of the traineeship, Steph moved back to her hometown of Wolverhampton and interned as a journalist for the new music magazine Born Music (now known as Clout) before becoming The Telling's Administrator in 2018. Steph’s role at The Telling developed and Steph was promoted to General Manager in 2022. Her duties include but aren't limited to administration, fundraising, tour planning & logistics, marketing, design, video editing, intern management and concert management.
In March 2022, Steph was selected by REMA Early Music Network for their REMArkable scheme which provides mentoring and support to young professionals in Early Music. She also received mentoring on BBC The Space's Digital Marketing Mentoring Programme in Autumn 2021.
Alongside her work in early music, Steph is Head Curator at Syncr Music where she curates music shortlists for consideration for use on TV and Film, and is the Digital Marketing and Content Advisor for electronic music producer, Alex Over.
Steph is also an active music composer. She has written scores for shadow puppet company Shadowflix, is the creator of the soundworld of game company Cerberus Studios, and most recently scored an animated short for Script Sirens. Steph specialises in writing music that works both synced to a moving image as well as independently, and is particularly influenced by the fusion of modern classical strings with alternative elements, moving away from the 20th century 'standard' sound of film scores.
