Her performance has been described as “intense” and songwriting as “mesmerising”. Ex Perth-based singer/songwriter Lara Stephen describes her work as “telling stories”.
Lara was recently nominated for a 2002 Kiss My Wami award for Most Popular Local Original Folk Act after the release of her debut CD ‘Deep Dead Blue’. She has been recognised with placings in song contests and inclusions on compilation CDs; written music for plays including Perth Fringe, and managed various projects including the ‘Living Room Sessions’ CD compilation.
She has performed comprehensively throughout Western Australia including the Perth International Arts Festival, Fairbridge Festival, Kulcha, Fly By Night Musicians Club, Mojos, Nannup Festival, Fremantle Arts Centre, Songstress Concert, Kiss My Wami Festival and Women in Music Showcases, and plans to do the same on the East Coast with a move to Sydney in 2003.
