Musical immersion from Mildura to Lismore
Stephanie Rogers was immersed in music from an early age. With her father, Christopher Rogers, being the hub of ‘all things music’ around Mildura, it wasn’t long before Steph made music a big part of her life. Although Steph had played other instruments before, she became serious about guitar by the age of 13, performing at the musicians club every few weeks. At the age of 16, Steph started writing music with a long time friend of hers, Samuel Rogerson, and they formed an acoustic duo Finding Flaws.
After traveling overseas seeking inspiration and culture, Stephanie decided to move to Lismore, NSW to study a Bachelor of Contemporary Music at Southern Cross University where she found her voice and released her self-titled debut EP.
‘Lismore is such a great place for music and the arts’, she says. ‘There are lots of positive people around who support artists and what we do. As well as this, the area is beautiful, with its rolling hills the scenery serves as a great source of inspiration.’
