A local Smooth Rock Falls musician has released her first ever EP.

Stephanie Rivard, who goes by Steffy when it comes to her music, is originally born and raised in Timmins before making the move over to Smooth Rock Falls.

Rivard says her first ever Extended Play or EP has five songs, all of which focus upon anxiety and depression, something very close to her that she is trying to help others with through her music.

Rivard says she hopes that people will be inspired by her lyrics to make changes within their lives for the better.

She says another part of her that comes through in her music is her colourful beats, which very much mirror her colourful personality.

Rivard says she wants to aim as high as she can with her career aspirations, but does not plan to forget where she comes from.
