Stephanie Ann's Biography

Born and raised in Brandon, Florida, Stephanie Ann began singing at a very early age. "She even broke her crib one day while singing and jumping up and down. She was always singing," her mother recalls. She then began playing the violin and got hooked on the classics playing Bach, Mozart & Beethoven.

"I would practice for hours on the violin playing all this classical music, and then I'd turn the radio on and start jamming to Charlie Daniels. It was pretty wild." Stephanie Ann received a bachelor's degree in classical violin and voice from the prestigious Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore, Maryland. Upon receiving a full-tuition scholarship from the University of North Texas, she later earned a masters degree in violin and music education.

"I was fortunate to get a good solid musical education. But I always knew that instead of playing for the New York Philharmonic, or being an opera diva, I was going to write my own songs and sing and play in my own band."

Stephanie Ann performed with such artists as Tony Bennett, Dionne Warwick, Smokey Robinson and Marvin Hamlisch, as well as touring all over the country and playing on the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee with Country Music Legend Bill Anderson. Singing and playing with these artists gave her the incentive to take "The Stephanie Ann Show!" on the road.

Her budding performance career was a result of that incentive. Stephanie Ann's debut CD entitled "A Little Fiddle Action" not only highlights her virtuosity on the violin/fiddle, but makes it clear that she can write a song just as well as she can sing one. Her lyrics are reflective and her melodies make up a unique blend of pop, gospel, jazz & country music.

Besides having received standing ovations for her energetic and spontaneous performances all over the United States, she has performed sold out shows in Europe & Canada as well.

Stephanie Ann has released 4 CDs. Her music is universal, positive and can appeal to all ages. For additional information, video, pictures & sound bytes, please visit www.stephanieann.com on the internet.
