The Stephanie Eason Band seamlessly mixes new country, rock, bluegrass, pop, and blues into a sound that is original and refreshing. Their sound has been compared to Lady Antebellum or Miranda Lambert with the charm of Patsy Cline or Emmylou Harris.
The Stephanie Eason band recently released their debut album, "The Red Letter Days". The album, recorded in Nashville at 16 Ton Studios, captures the spirit of contemporary country music with a flare of bluegrass, rock, traditional country, and pop mixed in. The variety of styles included on the album appeals to a broader audience while staying true to Stephanie's country roots.
"The Red Letter Days" features twelve original songs penned by the various members of the SEB. The title of the album reflects Stephanie's feelings about the recording and this exciting period in her life. Traditionally, schools and churches marked special dates on the calendar such as Christmas or graduation with large, easily visible red ink. These events were called "Red Letter Days". Stephanie and the band feel that the new album is a truly special collaboration, and the title was appropriate as the beginning of what will be a lasting relationship with both the musicians and the audience. The album is available on iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon, and other online outlets as well as the Stephanie Eason website and at live performances.
Stephanie’s musical journey began in elementary school when she began learning to play the fiddle and piano. Within a few years, she was performing at every opportunity, with her first real taste of success coming in the summer of 2004 when she was a finalist out of more than 4000 entries for the “Gimme the Mike!” challenge. The contest was hosted by KTVK TV in Phoenix and was designed to showcase some of the Southwest’s most talented vocalists.
In June of 2005, Stephanie was invited to perform with Naomi Judd (of the legendary Judds) at the Arizona Women’s Expo. Stephanie was honored to share the stage with Naomi, and it inspired her to continue developing her vocal talents. The Arizona Women’s Expo is one of the top five consumer events (for attendance) held in Arizona each year, and is dedicated to the needs of women and their lifestyles.
In August of 2006, Stephanie was invited to join CMA® award winning radio personalities Tim and Willy as part of their “All Earl” Band. The band does parodies of current and classic country songs as well as original material and is made up of an all star cast of musicians such as Ray Herndon (of McBride and the Ride fame). Stephanie is an honorary “Earlene”, and still performs with them regularly at festivals and events around the Southwest.
In 2007, Stephanie was given the honor of performing at one of the nation’s largest country events…Country Thunder USA. This annual concert event draws nearly 100,000 visitors each year, and is headlined by acts such as Tim McGraw, Montgomery Gentry, and Alan Jackson. 2009 marked Stephanie’s third year performing at the event. Stephanie and the band performed at the 2010 event as well.
Stephanie has also had the opportunity to open shows at the Dodge Theater and Celebrity for such artists as Terri Clark, Clint Black, Blake Shelton, and Katrina Elam.
The band is planning a summer/fall tour to promote the new album. Please see their gig schedule for details or visit www.stephanieeason.com.
