Stephanie McKeon

Dublin-born Stephanie McKeon is an accomplished actor/vocalist and voice over artist. Her extensive theatrical experience includes numerous leading roles in long-running musical productions, most significantly the West End (London) smash hits "The Commitments" and "Close To You; Bacharach Reimagined," during which time she performed with Burt Bacharach himself. In a review of this production, she was described as having "stunning vocals with something of the young Stevie Nicks about her."

Boasting great versatility of vocal styles - ranging from pop/rock and soul to musical theatre/ballad - Stephanie has enjoyed a career in music both onstage and in the studio, as well as an actor both onstage and onscreen.

Her progression into the world of voice-over was inevitable. With a natural flare for characters and an inherently musical ear, Stephanie brings a little something extra to her voice work.

 Formation

Stephanie's professional acting career began in her teens, with a recurrent guest role in the popular Irish soap opera, 'Fair City.' She then earned a B.A Degree in Drama & Theatre studies in 2009 from Trinity College, Dublin.

Stephanie has extensive experience as a studio recording artist and it was here that she developed some of the most important skills required by a voice artist, such as microphone technique, variation between takes and incorporating direction into her vocal performance.

Living with her musician boyfriend, who is also a music producer, Stephanie has gained invaluable experience in recording and editing voice work in their professional home studio.

She also features as a guest soloist on the the self-titled debut album by Niall O'Sullivan, which reached number 1 in the Irish Classical iTunes charts and the top ten in other European countries. Stephanie's vocals feature prominently on the original west end cast album of 'Close To You; Bacharach Reimagined' (Ghostlight Records), which is available on itunes, Spotify and Apple Music.

Stephanie has performed as a vocalist on numerous Irish and UK television shows including The Late Late Show (for Westlife), Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway, This Morning, The One Show and Children in Need.
