A Peaceful & Unique Singer / Songwriter
Nashville-based international singer-songwriter Stephanie Staples has ministered and performed around the world for over two decades, taking her passionate and contemplative music to a variety of venues in the USA, New Zealand, China, Hong Kong, Costa Rica, Canada, and across the United Kingdom and Europe.
Staples has written and recorded seven full albums and an EP. Her first album, Breathe on Me, was first released in 2001 and then re-released in 2003 with two additional songs. Her sophomore project, Face to Face, was released in 2006, followed by Journey Home (2007), Sing over Me (2010), the Advent/Christmas album Emmanuel (2013), and Interlude (2015).
She released an EP in 2016. After relocating to to the Nashville, TN area in 2017, she began working with Andy Hunt on her most recent record, Soar. Recorded in 2019 and released in 2020 just before the pandemic hit, Soar’s songs encourage the listener to hold on to their faith even in times of uncertainty and loss—a timely message for the world.
Stephanie’s studio albums tell part of her story but it is in her live performances that she truly shines, captivating audiences and fostering a reflective and prayerful atmosphere as she pours the full depth of her life experiences into her music, not shying away from the reality of suffering and dark times but reflecting a light that persists through it all.
Stephanie has shared the stage with numerous artists over the years. Her long list of credits includes festivals, retreats, universities, schools (elementary, middle, and high schools), churches, conferences, campus ministries, multiple centers for disadvantaged youth/inner city ministries, military bases, and shelters for the homeless.
In February of 2022 Stephanie began working with producer and artist, Jeremy Casella on another record (her 8th), set to be released in the Fall of 2022.
Stephanie and her husband Erik live in Franklin, TN with their two young daughters and their (weird) cat, Edward.
