Stephanie K's Hollywood looks and astounding vocal talent make a very powerful combination. She prides herself on the fact that she writes all of her own songs, lyrics and melodies.
Her songs have received awards from countless competitions and organizations, including Billboard, Music Nation, The International Songwriting Competition, The Great American Song Contest, The Los Angeles Music Awards, The Hollywood Music Awards, The International Singer/Songwriter Association, the International Unisong Contest, Show Me The Music Contest and The Music City Songwriting Competition.

In addition, her songs have been placed in award winning television shows (including the hit sitcom "The Game"). Stephanie's unique persona blends youth, raw emotion and sophistication. Several months ago, Stephanie teamed with famed 4-time Grammy Award winning producer Michael J. Powell (who helped launched the careers of and produced numerous hits for superstars Anita Baker, Aretha Franklin, Aaliyah, R Kelly, etc.) and the duo began an unprecedented collaboration for her upcoming album "Good Intentions". Their brand of music combines pop, soul, funk and rock elements that features a band comprised of world-renowned musicians. Edgy lyrics, Stephanie’s powerful and sexy vocals, raging guitars, live horns, soulful background vocals, funky drums, drive the tracks and create the backbone of her unique style. Her first single, "Story Of A Broken Heart", is available on iTunes now. Always stylish, Stephanie was named one of Detroit's Best-Dressed by Hour Detroit Magazine.
