Host and producer of Story Jam—a unique live lit and music show—Stephanie Rogers writes songs for storytellers' personal stories, which are played by a ten-piece band. The stories are true, and most of the tellers are award winners.
The daughter of an indie filmmaker and a dancer, Stephanie earned a theatre degree in acting from Northwestern University. She has acted in theatre, tv shows, commercials, and movies.
Steph combines her love of non-fiction theatre, storytelling, and music to produce Story Jam. She studied songwriting after college, and has performed in rock, folk, funk, pop, and progressive bands.
With top Chicago musicians, The Stephanie Rogers Band plays fundraisers, weddings, and other private functions. SRB has performed at hundreds of events in and around Chicago.
Hipchick Records is a small record label which is currently producing its fourth cd—a collection of Story Jam jams—to be released in 2018.
Stephanie lives in Chicago with her husband and son.
