Behind the Scenes: Black and White

I feel like a hermit returning to civilization, after living in a cave for the last month.

That’s a little dramatic, but realistically I’ve been camped out in my studio since I released Facedown, and I am just now emerging to post an update over here.


I’ve been posting a lot of behind the scenes videos on Facebook and instagram.  I spent all month finishing the writing, recording, mixing and mastering process of my next album.

I finished way before my deadline.

Black and White is ready for distribution.  That’s the next step.  I’m now working on album art, videos and promo stuff.  All those little details that I need to get done before release day, which will be on Black Friday (11.23.18).


I am excited to be done, even though the process was quite lovely and adventurous.  It was also full of new challenges and emotional hurdles to jump over.  The process brought growth and I’m thankful for that.

Now, I am typing this to you, while I listen to Classic 80’s Indie Rock and drink my coffee.  It feels good to be done.  So good.



Facedown (Feat. Z.Stone)

Today, my new single, Facedown is available to download and stream all across the internet!

Self Portrait 8.20.18

Featuring my friend, and fellow artist, Z.Stone, Facedown is an explosive ending to a very musically productive summer.

Facedown Cover

I sent Zach a message back in April and we brainstormed about the possibility of collaborating on a project.  I came up with a beat and sent to him, he laid down his vocal track and sent it back.  It’s cool to live in a day and age where you can collaborate from a distance, over the internet.

The rest is history.

This was my first collaboration on a single and it’s not going to be my last.


If you’re a fan of hip hop and rap, you should definitely check out Z.Stone’s tunes!

Tidal Wave

Hey, friends!  Guess what?  My latest song and video, Tidal Wave is out today!


Tidal Wave is most likely my last single release for the summer, and at this point I am beginning to think about doing another album either later this year or early next!

That said, Tidal Wave is a preview of what is to come.  I’ll keep you guys posted.

In the meantime, I’d love it if you would take a moment to check out my video!


You can grab your digital copy in my music store, or download & stream it on any of your favorite media platforms!


Thanks, everyone!  I hope your week is going well.

See you soon!

Summer Tunes & Beach Trips

Good afternoon, friends!  I am currently sitting in a coffee shop, drinking an iced chai and brainstorming ideas.  I am also now writing this blog post. 😉

A few minutes ago, I hit the send button and sent off a new single for distribution.  Check out this promo video I posted yesterday!


I wrote Tidal Wave a couple weeks ago.  Unlike my usual songwriting methods, I composed the music first and then went from there.  It was a fun challenge.

There’s been a lot on my heart lately.  Life can be overwhelmingly dark at times, am I right?

So much so, that I found myself having a hard time finding the words to say.  Even in prayer.  It was difficult.


So I asked God how to pray and to help center me during this time, when certain parts of life seem dim and grey.

That’s where Tidal Wave came from.  A very sad Stephanie, on a very sad day.

I can’t help but smile, as I write this.  The song is very bright and energetic.  It’s not a sad ballad, but more of a celebration.  I can’t wait to share it with you on August 1st.

The moment I finished the track, I knew I needed to get some shots of the ocean for the video.  The following week, some friends decided to take a spontaneous trip to Santa Cruz and invited me to come along.

Not only did I get all the footage my heart desired for the video, I was very refreshed from the change of scenery and fresh air.  It was good.

Also . . .



In case you haven’t heard, I am giving away a song for FREE.  You can get your digital copy of Brighter Than the Sun in my music store!

New Music in the Works!

It’s a beautiful, smokey day over here—I live near Yosemite, and there is apparently a fire today.  Yikes.  Anyway . . .

I’ve been busy mixing the final mix of a new song today, as well as making a video update for you all.

Just a girl and her dogs, working on music . . .


I haven’t decided how I’m going to release this one.  It is either going to be a single, with a video, or part of an EP.  I have to think on that for a bit, or may not very long.  I’ll let you know what I decide.

Also, have you been able to listen to my latest track, I Believe?  The video is over 7.6K views today.  WHAT?!?


One more thing . . .

For a limited time, you can download Brighter than the Sun for FREE on Noise Trade.


Have a great day, friends.  As always, thanks for your continued love and support.  You rock.


Now Available: Wings

Alt Wings Album Art

Yesterday, I released my summer EP.  When I first announced Wings, June felt so far away.  Here we are!

You can now stream and download Wings on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and all of your favorite media platforms.


As you’ve probably noticed, I have been releasing quite a bit of music of late.  And honestly, I have been having the time of my life.

That said, I am forcing myself to take the weekend off and rest.  It’s very difficult for me to follow through with this, but I know I have been the furthest thing from lazy.  So it’s time to take a day off and let my musically-geared mind take a vacation for a sec.  I mean, the weekend….not a day.  See my problem? 😉

I hope you enjoy Wings.  Special thanks to everyone who takes the time to check it out!  If you enjoy it, please share a link with your friends.  It means a lot and helps more than you know.


See you next week!


Brighter Than the Sun

I did something daring tonight.  I released a single.  It wasn’t planned.  I finished the song yesterday, made the video below, and now I am sharing it with you.  This totally breaks all my marketing rules, but here we go! 😉


It will probably be a few days until it’s up on Spotify, iTunes and all those other places we use to buy and stream our music.  In the meantime, you CAN grab a digital copy in my music store:
