Stephanie Cherote signs with Native Tongue ahead of debut album release

Stephanie Cherote, the award-winning Northern NSW singer, songwriter and guitarist, is prepping the release of her debut album, the first through a new deal struck with Native Tongue Music Publishing.

Cherote joined the Native Tongue roster at the back end of 2021, just in time for the release of Some Holy Longing, due out Friday, April 1.

“It is a milestone as an artist and songwriter to be appreciated on the basis of very personal work, by a publishing company such as Native Tongue,” Cherote says in a statement, issued Thursday (Jan. 20). “Our conversations have been about music, songwriting craft and process. I’m thrilled.”

Cherote has already teased her forthcoming LP with the release of the songs ‘Summer Love’ and ‘What Becomes Of The Things I’ve Seen?,’ both of which earned rave reviews with music blogs and tastemakers.

‘Summer Love,’ wrote Music Feeds’ Alex Gallagher, is “haunting, melancholic folk at its finest.”

The artist’s music career is been bubbling away for some years. Along the way, she relocated from Sydney to Los Angeles, initially for recording and songwriting opportunities, before returning home and finding her feet.

She’s snagged silverware for Australian independent songwriter of the year and, according to reps, has raised over $20,000 to record the new LP with the backing of a 12-piece orchestra.

“Sometimes, you hear an album having no idea about what you’re about to hear – no context, no background, no expectations,” comments Matt Tanner, Native Tongue Music Publishing’s Head of Creative Services.

“That was how I first heard Stephanie Cherote’s debut album and I can hear the same magic I heard that very first listen every time I’ve listened since. We’re proud to be working with Stephanie, and excited for the world to hear her debut album.”
