Stephanie Quayle captures the heart of storytelling as she offers the genre a fresh sound, relatable storylines and an invigorating presence that is unmatched in today’s musical spectrum. Harnessing her signature passion and pairing it with an authentic artistry, fans can expect to hear and feel exactly what they didn’t know they were missing.
“This music has changed me and I have found what I believe to be my place in country music. I have never been more comfortable in my voice and skin as I am today.”
Rising country artist Stephanie Quayle continues to captivate listeners whether she is on stage in a packed venue or a small intimate setting. From the vibrant blonde’s radiating energy and booming personality to the passion and intensity delivered in her music, the magnetic singer-songwriter grabs hold of an audience and doesn’t let go as she belts out her songs from behind her guitar and piano.
Quayle’s new single, “Winnebago,” takes the listener to all the beautiful places scattered throughout this great land. From the Empire State to the Golden Gate, this summer anthem encourages the young and wise to breathe in some fresh air and let the road lead to new experiences.
“I just want to go live this song. I’ve never seen the Hoover Dam before and I want to take a picture under Mt Rushmore! Growing up in the West, my grandparents would pull up in their motorhome and all the kids would jump in for the summer. It’s almost like everything has come full circle — Here I am singing about traveling this great country on the ultimate cross-country road trip in a new home on wheels!”
Partnering with acclaimed producer Matt McClure of the 2013 CMA “Song of the Year,” “I Drive Your Truck” by Lee Brice, Quayle’s new music is much anticipated. Accompanying the single, the upcoming album will include the songwriter’s penned “Post It,” “Shoebox” and heated “Selfish” along with crowd favorites “Fall When You Fall,” “Ugly” and previous single “Drinking With Dolly.”
“Drinking With Dolly” is close to Quayle’s heart. It is an anthem for all the women of country in a time when female artists are rising together to make a major impact in today’s music scene. Quayle is currently celebrating a Top 100 single on the Billboard Country Airplay chart and her first Top 50 record on the Billboard Indicator chart! The single was a catalyst for moments like a #1 music video on the CMT Music 12-Pack Countdown, her national television debut on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” and an invitation to the respected Island Hopper Songwriter’s Festival.
“When my producer asked if he could play me a song, I felt a magic from the first words and chords. That is where my love affair with this beautiful tribute to women in country music began. As a songwriter, I felt as if these were my own words and my own story. This song was a must.”
Growing up on a working buffalo farm in Montana, Quayle spent much of her time out in the barn mucking horse stalls while listening to the local AM radio. This early introduction to country music sparked her fascination with handcrafted lyrics, artful storytelling, careful melodies, and a song’s ability to touch so many lives at one time.
At the age of 12 she penned her first song and became a proficient young, little piano player; and when she turned 15, she bought an acoustic guitar at a pawnshop. The self-taught guitar player began turning her poetry and personal journal entries into her very own “three-chords and [her] cold hard truth.”
Before the launch of Quayle’s current project, singles “That’s What I’m Talking About” and “Sugar High,” impacted radio and CMT, GAC and ZUUS Country with the accompanying music videos. The Montana native’s career has taken her across the world performing on music stages alongside Gary Allan, Trace Adkins, Chase Rice, Granger Smith, Lee Brice and Jon Pardi as well as the stages of the Sundance Film Festival, NRA, Country Jam and CMA Music Festival. Active in competitive equine and firearm sporting events, Quayle is a regular participant in charity events aligned with the heart of the country music lifestyle. Most recently, Quayle was named one of the 2016 Macy’s iHeartRadio Rising Star Top 5 finalists!
Quayle’s journey as an artist has led her to this very moment in her career. She has found her voice and her sound. A perfect fit. A fit she has been piecing together all her life.
