Nashville-based international singer-songwriter Stephanie Staples has ministered and performed around the world for over two decades, taking her passionate and contemplative music to a variety of venues in the USA, New Zealand, Costa Rica, Canada, and across the United Kingdom and Europe.
Her long list of credits includes festivals, retreats, universities, schools, churches, conferences, campus ministries, multiple centres for disadvantaged youth/inner city ministries, military bases, and shelters for the homeless. Staples has written and recorded eight full albums and an EP. Her latest record, Love Broke Through was produced by Jeremy Casella and features musicians Phil Keaggy, Blair Masters, Nathan Dugger, Byron House, and many others.
Stephanie’s studio albums tell part of her story but it is in her live performances that she truly shines, captivating audiences and fostering a reflective and prayerful atmosphere as she pours the full depth of her life experiences into her music, not shying away from the reality of suffering and dark times but reflecting a light that persists through it all. Her songs are soothing, reflective, and hopeful and many have said that her humour and shared between songs have similar impact.
In January of 2023 of Stephanie began working with producer Mitch Dane on another record (her 9th), set to be released in the Fall of 2023. Stephanie and her husband Erik live in Franklin, TN with their two young daughters.
