As much as I love the Neighbours tradition of people leaving the soap to persue a career in music, I have to admit that I’d never heard of Stephanie McIntosh’s pop career!
Stephanie McIntosh was the second person to play Sky Mangel, taking on the role between 2003 – 2007. During this time, McIntosh was also releasing pop records, although success was practically non-existant it would seem.
Revisiting the album on Spotify independently of any marketing drive etc, I have to say, her material is non-offensive to the ear and not wholly bad… I can think of songs I enjoy far less in the Top 40 at the moment!
I especially like “So Do I Say Sorry First” (which only charted in the UK at number 258!).

“You Should Have Lied”
Also hitting the music scene from the world of ‘Neighbours’ is Sam Clark (Ringo Brown)– I *really* like his song “Broken” which has a release date TBC.
