Stephanie is from Macomb, IL. Stephanie has a B.A in Business and a Master’s in Art from Western Illinois University. Stephanie’s career in radio was a mere coincidence.

Bigfoot Yancey is an Indianapolis-based band that has developed a sound that draws upon inspiration from various genres but always rooted in Americana and the blue collar sound that has defined many parts of this country for decades. In an era where more and more musicians are relying upon technology, Bigfoot Yancey strives to keep their music as raw and stripped down as possible. This allows the listener to fully engage with the music in a very real sense.
