Ms. Stephanie Fisher

Visionary. Renaissance woman. Connector of music to life. Stephanie Fisher’s music experience began in her hometown of Warren, Ohio, where her musical interest and curiosity was piqued at a very young age. At just five years old, she began classical piano and vocal training. By age 13, she began instructing choirs in her Baptist church home, under the pastorate of her father. After high school, Stephanie continued her musical studies at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. Her studies at Berklee expanded and refined her musical abilities and gave way to more opportunities that continue to bless her even now.

After relocating to Newark, New Jersey and eventually to New York City, Stephanie’s professional career quickly progressed. As a member of the SOP Chorale led by Natalie Wilson, she was featured on The Good Life album performing the “3:16 Interlude” for which she wrote and sang lead vocals. Soon after, Stephanie began touring as a background singer for many R&B and Soul artists such as Tweet, Jill Scott, and Leela James, as well as Gospel legends Marvin Sapp, Kim Burrell, and Edwin Hawkins.
