Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Stephanie Seymour. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and liked the vibes of her music.
The sound of this artist immediately put me in a good mood, music that transfers beautiful emotions and makes you forget about everyday problems.
You feel that Stephanie Seymour has a lot of compositional experience behind her as her songs are well thought out and the chord progression is never predictable and banal.
The passion that this artist puts into composing and performing her songs oozes from the notes sung by her voice.
The new single There Was A Time is a hymn that manages to give you incredible vital energy…as when wonderful memories of the past resurface and give you hope for the future.
The production is excellent and honestly, I found no flaws in the music proposed by this talented artist.
A nice discovery that I recommend to everyone.
There Was A Time is Stephanie Seymour’s Single Out Now!
Energetic and Fresh!
Stephanie was the drummer for NYC’s all-female rock band The Aquanettas (“Love With The Proper Stranger” LP on Nettwerk/IRS Records/1990, “Roadhaus” EP on Rockville/1993). She was backup singer/percussionist for Psychic Penguin in the mid ’90s, and the lead singer and songwriter in Birdy (“Supernominal Paraphernalia”  and “Quarantine”  on Cropduster Records). In 2004, Stephanie became interested in bird watching, a passion that soon dominated her time. A musical lightning bolt struck in 2018, and she decided to combine her love of birds and music. In 2019, “There Are Birds” was released to much acclaim. Deep Roots magazine called it “glorious, supremely engaging music.” The Aquarian Weekly said the album “is phenomenal…it’s melodic, it’s poignant, it’s clever, and it’s storytelling at its finest.”
Flash forward to her new single “There Was a Time.” Eddie Van Halen is one of her favorite guitarists. After his death, she began thinking about when he and ex-wife Valerie Bertinelli were the “it” couple in the ’80s and ’90s. A flood of wonderful memories came to her. “Though I wrote the song with them in mind, the lyrics are universal and relevant to anyone who has fond memories that are brought back by photos, music, or whatever it may be. I wanted to create a celebratory song.”
