Stephanie Rhealyn is an extremely versatile American songwriter.
Yep, that's what I call myself! And if you listen to my current catalog, you'll understand why! Overall, I tend to somehow mix elements of rock, country, pop, alternative all together - and sometimes, even a touch of blues! I just create the melodies that come to me – if it’s country, it’s country, if it’s pop, it’s pop, etc. I don't think I could ever limit my songwriting to just one genre because, like I said, I just write songs to the melodies that come to me whenever I'm just chillin with my guitar. ALTHOUGH, I do feel like my personally unique sound is finally emerging - and I'd say it's like Pearl Jam, Lisa Loeb, and Stevie Nicks all mixed together! I'll be releasing some of these tunes in 2021, so stay tuned!
Stephanie has quite a unique personality.
I mean, if I do say so myself! I'm very laidback and my sense of humor is nearly always in use! I believe in “keeping it real” and enjoying life to the fullest. Friends know me to be particularly understanding, trustworthy, and genuine (I asked them lol). I'm also an INTJ if that means anything to whoever is reading this, and I do consider myself to be academically and vocationally successful too. Hey, I'm not bragging, I'm just trying to give you the full picture! Honestly, if I had a dollar for every time someone told me that they thought I was a stuckup "B" when they first met me, but then actually got to know me and realized I was the most down-to-earth person they’ve ever met, I’d probably have at least 37 dollars! In fact, I'm super-humble and have only recently developed the kahunas to "put myself out there!"
Narcissistic Abuse Warrior.
I'm also a devoted advocate for women recovering from narcissistic abuse + trauma. I suffered for over 10 years without even knowing that what I was experiencing was abuse. Now, I want to share my personal story + professional insights to help others rise above this painfully complicated toxicity.

Quote She Lives By
"It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not." - Andre Gide
Born and raised in the heart of southern Virginia, I started playing around on the guitar when I was 10. I continued to learn, play, and write in honor of my dad (who also enjoyed guitar) who passed away when I was 12. For me, playing guitar and writing songs was the safest and most effective outlet for coping with losing my dad. Fun fact: I didn't learn how to play my first real chord until I was 19.
Never one to enjoy the spotlight, I remained what I call a “bedroom songwriter.” Songwriting, for me personally, is not an avenue for popularity or recognition . . . it’s just something I love to do . . . it’s my absolute favorite form of expression . . .it’s fun . . . and when I’m picking out melodies, it’s like my heart comes alive. With family ties to the legendary Roy Clark and the granddaughter of the late Bluegrass extraordinaire Gene Clark, I feel like I was born with music in my bones.
After securing a successful career outside of music, starting a family, and earning my Masters in Human Services Counseling + Life Coaching, I'm finally able to focus on my passion for music and songwriting in my spare time. Honestly, I always thought that having even one of my songs produced was just a dream. But, once I figured out how to turn my pain into my power, I not only made that dream come true, but I've released several songs worldwide with more to come!
