Artist Stephanie Owens learned to appreciate her true self through the power of music. Growing up in a musical family Stephanie was destined for the stage. However by the age of twelve Stephanie had developed an eating disorder after letting bullies define her by her appearance rather than her talent.
Moving to Nashville out of college looking for a fresh start Stephanie set out to tell her story. Collaborating with various artists in the area, Stephanie found that she was not alone as others had dealt with similar disorders. With music as an escape, Stephanie released her self-titled debut EP in May. Featuring five tracks which tell Stephanie’s story, the EP has the ability to relate to any listener.
Reaching out to middle and high school aged girls dealing with eating disorders, Stephanie’s track Little Girl In The Mirror will inspire anyone to love who they are saying “I am fighting for the little girl in the mirror.” Stephanie also wants to encourage her listeners to find love with her song Box of Letters. Inspired by her twelve year old self who decided to write letters to her future husband, Stephanie wants others to do the same. In fact Stephanie is now offering her fans a box for their letters to someone special on her website at www.stephowensmusic.com.

I am currently a student at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles as a marketing major. Upon realizing that I wanted to change the way people perceive country music and to help women have a voice, I began Next Women of Country in 2015 promoting new female artists and sharing their stories with the world.
