Stephen Brady

Vocal quartet of singer-songwriters from the Blue Mountains of NSW, formed in 2007 and comprised of Stephen Brady, Alissa Stewart, Liz Green & Sandra Young. They have performed individually and have collaborated in various combinations since the late 1970s. Stephen & Liz recorded & regularly performed together as Cascade in the 1980s.

Their repertoire of original & non-original material embraces a broad range of musical genres as demonstrated by the 15 tracks on ‘Arrow’, their first album now proudly released on the Blue Shamrock label. Their essentially acoustic musical styling encompasses a delightful fusion of country, folk, bluegrass, gospel, celtic and roots music. All 4 members share lead and harmony vocals throughout the album and during live performances.
