Whysper Stephenson is the ten-year old daughter of Larry and Dreama Stephenson. Larry is a well-known music artist and Dreama runs their record label. This is Whysper’s debut release of mixed gospel and bluegrass tunes. On this project she plays fiddle and sings, and she is joined by her father Larry on mandolin and vocals, and veteran Steve Thomas plays fiddle, guitar, and bass.
The majority of the selections are instrumental featuring Whysper on fiddle and Larry and Steve taking mandolin and guitar breaks respectively. Thomas joins Whysper on twin fiddles on “Liberty” and “Faded Love.” Vocally, Larry sings lead on “I’ll Fly Away” with Whysper on harmony, and Whysper herself sings lead on “Amazing Grace” and “Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing.”
The project ends with a much younger Whysper sings with her dad on “Jesus Loves Me.” Overall Whysper does a fine job playing and looks to have a good future ahead. She has already won a number of fiddle contests such as USAG SE Region, Tennessee State contests, and LHSC Buckle High Point. We will be anticipating more from Whysper Stephenson.
