Stephanie Atkins' Album Release Party

Saturday - July, 24 @ 7:00pm

Born in Maine, Stephanie Atkins has always been a songwriter at heart but only
began putting her songs to music in 2017. Now, 4 years and 2 albums later, she
feels like there’s no holding back her muse. Not quick to categorize them, her
songs range from pop to folk to modern country and Americana. (One of the
songs in this newest album even has a hint of reggae/ska influence thanks to a
fun arrangement by guitarist Gerard Carey!) A professional actress and teacher,
Atkins considers herself more of a songwriter than a singer; yet clearly her
audiences appreciate her stage presence and storytelling through song. It’s
Atkins’ goal to have her songs picked up by established artists to find a
worldwide audience.

This sophomore album welcomes back the talents of Gerard Carey, Andy Happel,
Bob Whytock, Sydney Atkinson, Kari Hodgens, Luna Colt, Victor LeClerc, Chris
A. Neal, and sound engineer Sean Slaughter. In addition, newcomers drummer
Todd McLellan, guitarist Carole Wise, vocalist Dave Shaffer, and vocalist Maggie Atkinson contribute to Atkins' "Promise Street" album.

CD’s of both “Skinny Jean Bonfire”
and “Promise Street” will be available at the album release.
