Stevie Parker to play The Flapper Birmingham

Bristol-based Stevie Parker delivers a unique take on ambient electronic pop. Having supported the likes of SOAKGeorgiaAlex G and Adam French, as well as playing a show for the famous fashion icon Markus Lupfer, Stevie is certainly already turning heads.

Sonically, Parker’s debut album The Cure stands out because of her raw talent: the 24-year-old’s smoky vocals (at times raspy, at times quite delicate) never fail to paint an evocative picture—of lost love, of longing, of the melancholic beauty of just living. Production-wise, pulsing synths (think: The xx) provide an atmospheric yet sleek backdrop. Under the guidance of her mentor, Rough Trade Records co-owner Jeannette Lee, Parker teamed up with Grammy Award-winning writer-producer Jimmy Hogarth for the majority of the LP, as well as producer David Wrench (The xx’s ‘I See You’, FKA Twigs, Caribou, Floating Points); Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa and Seb Rochford of Polar Bear also contributed drums.

However, what truly sets The Cure apart is Parker’s self-awareness in her writing: the record is a deft yet frank examination of her strengths, her flaws, and her relationships with others, and with herself.
