Singer-songwriter Stephanie McCourt, who has roots in Dundalk, took to the stage recently at her biggest show to date, performing at the legendary Jazz Café in Camden Town, London to a sell out crowd.
Headlining the Supa Dupa Fly event, the first few acts came and went before the crowd got to see what they had really come for; Stephanie McCourt live for one night only.
The likes of BBC’s The Voice finalist Matt Henry who Stephanie had recently supported at his album launch event was in the house showing support as was John Michie (Holby City, Coronation Street) who had come to support and see the songstress for the first time.
In addition were A&R’s from Sony, Virgin and more who were all checking out the talent of the young singer with a view to signing her to their labels.
Stephanie’s dad, Dundalk born Christopher Mc Court was also there to support his daughter. Stephanie is the grand-daughter of Jim and Audrey Mc Court, from Bay Estate.
The head of Unstoppable Music Group Ben Wynter took to the stage describing her as a once in a generation voice that will blow you away, before introducing her to stage, what followed was a breathtaking performance full of confidence, swagger and a lot of shimmying.
Stephanie performed songs from her forthcoming EP ‘Stripped Back’, which is due to be released on itunes this week along with a cover of the super funky record “Cant Rely On You” by Paloma Faith.
The name Stephanie McCourt is not one that will be going away anytime soon that is for sure.
