FLORENCE, S.C. – Florence singer Stephanie Fagan will release her newest extended-play recording, “The March,” next month with a party hosted by The Clay Pot.
The album release party will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. on June 13 in the Renaissance Dining Courtyard downtown.
Fagan said she will perform the four songs from the EP at the release party.“The whole theme of the album is just wedding-oriented love songs,” Fagan said.
Over the years, she said , her friends have commissioned her to write songs for their weddings. Fagan said she ended up with many wedding songs.
“Wedding songs are a little bit hard to come by,” she said. “It’s a little bit hard to find songs like that. The idea is to give people some options for their big day.”
Songs included on “The March” were written at the request of Fagan’s friends and performed at their weddings.
“The March” and Fagan’s other music are all indie-folk-styled.Of the four songs on the EP, her favorite is “You’re Mine.” She said that particular song is upbeat and lighthearted.
“It's about being immune to outside forces and so empowered with the positive energy of new love that you feel totally invincible,” she said. “It's also about just being completely yourself and finding that one person who you can give your whole life to and not feel like you've lost a thing.”
Fagan is signed to the Florence record label Big Mavis Music. Missy Jones, the owner of the record label and Fagan’s manager, said people should attend the release party because the Florence native has a beautiful voice.
“Lots of people enjoy coming to her shows,” Jones said. “While her music is beautiful, she’s also very funny. As a local singer-songwriter, people should come out and support all of our local music.”
Physical copies of “The March” will be available at the release party and on www.stephaniefagansings.com/store beginning June 14. The digital version is available now at www.alternativeweddingmarch.com/buy-alternative-wedding-music.
