The group still headlines festivals throughout the NW regularly and has even agreed to open for her Portland, OR CD release performance for Rubber Teardrop.

Her musical accomplishments also extend to film, TV and beyond.

She has also produced three CDs featured as soundtracks for a series of popular children’s videos. OyBaby, OyBaby 2, That Baby DVD and the accompanying CDs have sold more than 30,000 combined units (www.thatbabydvd.com).

She has enjoyed success as an actress in films like Men of Honor, starring Robert De Niro and Cuba Gooding Jr. as well as leads in several local productions. Her most recent nod combined music and theater in Profile Theater Project’s encore production of the hit Broadway musical The Full Monty.

In 2007 Stephanie founded and produced Voices for Silent Disasters (www.voicesforsilentdisasters.com).
