Raised in New England (Newton, NH) Stefanie knew from a young age that her true passion was music. as part of a close-knit family, Stefanie would often listen to country music with her mom, and grew to love the genre from youth. Stefanie enlisted the help of vocal coaches beginning at the age of 15, and often performed at local fairs and events. After winning multiple vocal competitions, Stefanie grew the confidence to pursue her career in music.
After opening for Lee Brice in early 2015, she was inspired to start working on her solo project. "Lee was so awesome, he ave me priceless advice on forming relationships with music professionals in Nashville, and encouraged me to never give up." Stefanie now splits her time between Nashville and New England and has new music being released in early 2016. Inspired by artists such as Gretchen Wilson, Miranda Lambert and Wynonna, Stefanie stated "I love writing music that makes people want to jump up and dance and sing along".
She is currently writing with Paul Rippee in Nashville. "I'm so grateful for the awesome people I've met and the relationships I've formed on this journey. Some of these people I'm working with are so talented, yet so down to earth, it blows my mind!" Stefanie's commanding stage presence, powerful vocals, and charisma both capture and entertain audiences. She is an active advocate for women in country music. Needless to say, her fans have a lot to look forward to in 2016!
