A brave Hamilton musician is hoping for success after releasing a song which talks about her experiences of bullying.

Stephanie Cheape (24) from Little Earnock was signed last year by independent label Le Mix Records and, while working on her album, has released her first single about her time at school.

The track Who’s Laughing Now? touches on her time at John Ogilvie High, before she left and was home schooled for nearly a year. She then attended Hamilton Grammar for the rest of her time in education.

She said: “In school, music was never a strong subject for me. I taught myself guitar by reading books and watching online tutorials during the eight months it took me to get into a new school, for which time I was home schooled.

“I began to develop a keen interest in music around the age of 14 or 15. I started writing songs and applying melodies to them with my guitar, but I never performed any of my music until I was 17, when I entered a songwriting competition and went on to be a finalist in the UK Live and Unsigned contest.

“I played for hundreds of people. It was after this I knew I wanted to succeed in the music industry.

“The song itself is for anyone who didn’t fit in or was victim to bullying as I know all too well unfortunately.

“The song has a strong message which I’ve had an amazing response to.”

The single is out now on iTunes, Spotify and Google Play and can also be found on Stephanie’s Facebook.
