Steph Green's music is for those who fancy the art of songwriting - - poignantly, and occasionally humorously, depicting a lonely world illuminated by strangeness and beauty. Her debut album, Thanks for That is a kaleidoscope of loud, distorted guitars, moody and romantic country-noir, sunny beach-pop, and shuffling folk-rock that will make you both laugh and feel the good kind of crappy. Produced by Green in collaboration with engineer/co-producer Duff Thompson, Thanks for That was recorded to tape over the course of three years in New Orleans and was released January 14, 2022 on Mashed Potato Records.

Green started out as a traveling musician playing folk music on the street. Her first venture into writing and recording her own songs came in 2016 when she recorded Salt Spring Island Tapes to a cassette 4-track. Created while living out the winter alone in a seaside barn, the raw and otherworldly EP reflects the DIY ethos and spirit of experimentation characteristic of Green's approach to music. Her second EP, Spooky Love was recorded the following year in New Orleans. Recorded mostly live to an old Ampex reel-to-reel, Spooky Love demonstrated Green expanding her sound to include elements of pop, garage rock, and the lonesome, eerie side of American roots music. During this time and over the next

few years, Green also regularly performed live and on recordings as a backing

musician for numerous songwriters in the city. It was also during this time that she co-founded Mashed Potato Records, which she presently continues to co-run with Duff Thompson in Canada.
