Biography of Stephanie K
"I want to give you a glimpse of my psyche...
It ain't family friendly, it ain't Life with Mikey..."
Stephanie K's astounding vocal talent, Hollywood looks, creative penmanship and quirky personality make a very powerful combination. She prides herself on the fact that she is not just a singer, but an accomplished songwriter as well.
Her songs have received awards from countless competitions and organizations, including Billboard, Music Nation, The International Songwriting Competition, The Great American Song Contest (first place in Pop), The Los Angeles Music Awards (Pop Artist and Single of the Year), The International Music and Entertainment Association Awards (Rock Artist of the Year), The Hollywood Music Awards, The International Singer/Songwriter Association, the Unsigned Only Competition, The American Songwriting Awards, the International Unisong Contest, Show Me The Music Contest, The Indie Music Channel, The Nashville Songwriters Association International Song Contest Presented by CMT and The Music City Songwriting Competition.
Born and raised in the Detroit area, she has been performing on stages across the country since a very early age as both a singer and musical theater actress. She has earned a stellar reputation around the globe for her creative lyricism, edgy style and powerful vocals. While attending the University of Michigan on an academic scholarship, Stephanie K was introduced to esteemed 4-time Grammy Award winning producer Michael J Powell (Anita Baker, Aretha Franklin, Aaliyah, SWV.) Says Powell, "Stephanie K is one of the most prolific and talented songwriters I have ever worked with. Combined with her stellar vocal abilities, she is a truly a one-of-a-kind talent."
Stephanie K is currently hard at work on the national release of her first studio album, which combines the best elements of pop, rock, soul and funk. Her first single, "Hard", produced by Trend Def, the talented production/songwriting team responsible for hit songs from artists like Paris Hilton and Snoop Dogg, is set to hit airwaves internationally in early 2015 with a remix that includes international superstar rapper Y.G. Along with Trend Def and Michael Powell, Multi-platinum hip-hop producer Detail (Lil' Wayne, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, etc), also contributes to some songs on the album, adding yet another layer of diversity to Stephanie's incredibly unique musical style.
As seen in her music videos on her Official VEVO channel, Stephanie K stays true to her personality and manages to perfectly represent the visual image of what we have come to expect from her songs. Stephanie is sexy, dynamic and always in control. She seems to embody the confident beauty that every guy wants but won't "bring home to mom", as it seems she is always riding the thin-line between quirkiness and utter insanity. Says Stephanie, "I could be the worst or the best thing that's ever happened to you. Probably both. That's what I'm trying to show the world." Fitting, as Stephanie is a Gemini and a self-described "true split-personality."
Stephanie has been featured on Inside Edition, FOX, as well as in The Huffington Post, The New York Post, The Detroit Free Press and other noted television programs, websites and publications. Her music can be found in TV shows (The Game, Bad Girls Club, Total Divas, etc.) and movies internationally. Along with her band, she has graced the stages of countless venues and national festivals, including the RedGorilla Musicfest at SXSW, The Day & Night Music Festival, famed Whisky a Go-Go, House of Blues and the Palace of Auburn Hills. She is a regular national anthem singer for both the Detroit Pistons and Detroit Tigers, and is known for her rock&roll fashion sense, as she was named one of the Best-Dressed People in Detroit by Hour Magazine.
She enjoys pilates, yoga, running, blackjack, stoli dolis and causing trouble in her spare time.
