“Ain't It Funny” - This lady is fabulous, released this week from Glasgow singer-songwriter, all sorts of music some folk lovely ballads, really is quality, just what we need for UK Country music, I think she's great. Making her debut, all written by her, original music -  Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Stephanie started writing songs in 2008. Her music is kind of a cross over between folk and country.

Her first gig was opening for Joan Armatrading after only having done a few open mics.

Described by Maverick Magazine (on their website) as "Glasgow's gifted Newcomer" "A singer-songwriter with the raw talent, and sure promise of future success. Her sound is the sound of tomorrow..."

Manns’ brand of Americana is littered in subtle changes in direction of a music that is simple, effective and at same time innovativeAmericana UK (See Review)

Manns started her musical career in Jersey becoming a regular on the acoustic music scene (Forming her own band Eskimo Clan) . Since being in Glasgow Stephanie has played Scottish Folk Festival Celtic Connections and such venues as King Tuts and The Arches. Manns' style ranges from playfully wistful tunes to the melancholic heartbreak that strikes at the core of country musicians.
The 10 track album COME CLOSER, out March 1st 2014, was recorded, mixed and mastered with Graeme Duffy (from legendary 80’s/90’s band ‘Wet Wet Wet’) at Motherwell-based Foundry Music Lab studios .
