LIPS is not just a giant pair of lips on legs. She is a masterful songwriter (a Silver Scroll winner) with a sly sense of humour who likes to tell stories, stories about her friends and neighbours, stories that come to life in her songs. Whether it’s loneliness or love, anger or happiness, Stephanie Brown has a knack for capturing the bittersweet nuances of life. Her breezy vocals and subdued instrumentation are sometimes reminiscent of Scandinavian indie act Little Dragon or American songstress Laura Veirs.
She and her band are living and working in New York so if you are not popping across to the US, then catch them live in Wanaka!
