Stefanie discovered her passion for music and songwriting at a young age. She got her start by singing her song ideas into her grandfather's old cassette recorder. As she dove deeper into songwriting, she learned to play guitar which took her writing to the next level. She began to showcase her songs by taking the stage at Lehigh Valley's Musikfest, as well as appearing on the tv music series 'Steel Sessions', and singing the National Anthem at Coca-Cola Stadium.
In 2011 Stefanie ventured to Nashville and performed at the legendary Bluebird Cafe and 12th & Porter. Two years later she traveled to perform at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to further expand her life journey. These experiences have led to the collection of songs from her debut CD.
In 2015, Stefanie began recording her album with producer Brian J. Anthony who immediately embraced her vision. Brian helped create a sonic landscape by mixing bits of rock, pop and country while not losing the intensity of her voice or deep personal reflection in her lyrics. The result of these tracks gained the attention of some of the area's best-known musicians who all jumped at the opportunity to be part of this release.
Stefanie continues to captivate fans of all ages with her love torn lyrics and catchy hooks. She is ready to take center stage as one of Pop/Rock's best up and coming artist.
