About Stephanie Quayle
Montana based Country Recording Artist, Stephanie Quayle boldly declares in her song Alley of Desires that she's "living the dream," but she didn't get there by resting on her laurels or coasting by on her good looks, though she certainly could have. Stephanie is not that type of woman.
The road to her latest project, Aint No Housewife, is paved with a surprising amount of life experience worn into this singer-songwriter's cockroach killers. From the slow burn of "Promise You Won't Feel a Thing" to the bold, boogie-woogie declaration "Ain't No Housewife," Stephanie sounds as confident as she does earnest, paying respect to country elders while pushing the envelope of Country music.
Stephanie's youth was spent in a dusty Montana barn with the hum of country music legends in the background. The muse came early at age 12 to this American beauty. Her early efforts at songwriting denied the inherent twang in her voice but eventually Stephanie embarked on a musical journey, joining her first band in Switzerland. A long way from the Rocky Mountains, she began working to gain performing experience and notoriety in the middle of Europe.
The experience furthered this musician's resolve: to chase down that musical dream and let nothing stand in her way. "It was the moment I knew that this would be my life.
The ride wasn't always pretty, but it was real. Stephanie returned to the United States, making her way through gravel roads, dive bars and the elusive star-making machinery to finally replant her roots in Los Angeles. But much as a surprise to Stephanie as anyone else, those were the same country roots that once buzzed in the din of her Montana barn.
Turning away from the establishments that could have made Stephanie's dream chase all the easier, she decided instead to be an artist with full creative control. The journey led to writing and recording Aint No Housewife produced by Jim Roach.
"It was no longer about what everyone else wanted me to do, or who to be, it was about what I wanted to create and how I wanted to tell my story and empower others." The songs tell the tale of Stephanie's journey, of her triumphs, heartaches, tears, and laughter, with irresistible melodies, tell-it-like-it-is lyrics and down-home rhythms. Stephanie Quayle will seduce you with her voice and her story, and maybe inspire you to kick up some dust and chase your own dream as well.
