Stephanie Holman, mononymously known as Sphie, was born September 11, 1984. Indiana native, Sphie intertwines an eclectic blend of soul, indie and pop mixed with operatic undertones. She began singing at the age of eight and songwriting in high school. It was in college that she recorded her first E.P. Existentially Challenged, which was an acoustic project produced by house and techno artist Jacob Hoffman.
In 2007, Sphie sold most of her possessions and chose to set off across the country on an unstructured journey of the soul. After nearly four years of self-study and intuitive travel studying sustainability, nature and humanity, Sphie landed in Los Angeles to record her first full-length album, Listen to Pretty Music and Let Your Soul Shine. Produced and mastered by Los Angeles producer Shygone, the album reflects vivid lyricism and haunting melody lines directed at motivating self-empowerment and conscious awareness to the listener. Released in April 2012, singles on Listen to Pretty Music include “Bounce in My Step,” “Glint of Spring,” and “Pig Ears N’ Honey.”
In late 2012, Sphie began working on a solo release titled, Re:Revolution. The project, originally intended as a five song E.P. was instead released as two singles. The singles, titled, “Music in the Movement” and “Fun’s in the Fallin” were released digitally. A video project for “Music in the Movement” was released nearly a year later in the fall of 2013.
In the summer of 2012, Sphie began writing songs for a second full length album, Limitless Extraordinaire. The songs were written in a one-room cabin in northern Montana. With no running water and no electricity, Sphie spent the summer writing, reflecting and adventuring in a small community near the Canadian Border. The album, due to feature singles, “Without Any Lights On,” and “Love is the Answer,” has a prospective release for fall of 2014.
Sphie, when not singing, writing and performing, can be found in various communities nationwide teaching yoga and meditation, dance and the limitless experience of the human soul.
