She has opened shows for music legends like Stanley Clarke, Poncho Sanchez and Maceo Parker, backed up Cuba Gooding Sr., and worked with a number of Grammy Award- winning artists and performers. In addition to her touring schedule, Steph enjoys a residency at Croce's Jazz Bar in Downtown's Gaslamp Quarter where her dynamic trio featuring Rob Thorsen on upright bass and Fernando Gomez on drums, has been receiving rave reviews.

An Infinite and varied Passage through the peaks and lowest subvalleys of the human condition. A Feel... born of resonance from the echos of inspiration, along with the swift decline of any sun lit moment shared. Yet documentation and interpretation shall occur with vigor for the most honest bearing of soul and self. The death of young ignorant bliss and the birth of the struggle for one to be one, Enter: the ever elusive search for balance plus Love. Witness the rise and fall personified, be the darkness to feel the light.
