Host and creator of Story Jam, a unique live lit and music show, Stephanie Rogers writes original songs for award-winning storytellers. Each show boasts fresh stories and songs, extraordinary personal narratives, and a 10-piece band.
After graduating in theatre from Northwestern University, Stephanie acted in television, theatre, and independent films, while performing as the lead singer of rock, funk, pop, and progressive bands. Her event band, The Stephanie Rogers Band, has performed at hundreds of private events in and around Chicago.
Stephanie teaches workshops and is currently writing her master's thesis on the genesis and progression of live lit (storytelling), for National Louis University’s Written Communication program.
Her love of non-fiction theatre, music, and personal narrative inspires the songs and stories for Story Jam. Steph is currently working on a podcast and producing a fourth cd—a collection of Story Jam songs—for her indie label, Hipchick Records.
