As the host and creator of Story Jam, a unique live lit and music show, Stephanie Rogers writes original songs for award-winning storytellers. Each performance boasts fresh stories and songs, extraordinary personal narratives, and a 10-piece band.
Through Story Jam Studio™, Steph and her team of talented storytellers, writers, performers, and coaches offer workshops, classes, and retreats, and the chance to create Story Jam-style shows which center on storytelling, or a combination of storytelling and original music.
After graduating in theatre from Northwestern University, Steph acted in television, theatre, commercials, and independent films while performing as the lead singer of indie bands and orchestras. She eventually started her own event band, the Stephanie Rogers Band, which also serves Story Jam.
Stephanie is producing Story Jam, developing Story Jam Studio, and writing her master's thesis on the genesis and progression of live lit storytelling for National Louis University’s Written Communication program, while (slowly) working on a fourth cd—a collection of Story Jam jams—for her indie label, Hipchick Records.
