Biography

Multi-faceted, a consummate entertainer and a true song stylist, Stella. has touched audiences worldwide not only through her music, but her stage, television, and film presence as well.

Stella. began her entertainment career at an early age singing gospel music with her family -- in church and on television and radio. Her first two albums, which included several original compositions, reflected that early influence and delivered that same sincerity and honesty which is felt in her music today.

Relocating to Nashville, Stella. wrote and recorded her first hit single, "I Want To Hold You In My Dreams Tonight," which launched her career in country music. She since has recorded 25 chart singles, 17 albums and garnered numerous awards and nominations, including multiple ASCAP Awards and ACM and Music City News Award nominations.

As a child, Stella. sang in her granddad’s church in East Tennessee. Appalachian Gospel took her back to that church and her roots. Stella. comments, 'I feel blessed to have come full circle with this particular collection of songs. I sang these songs as a child and while recording them, I chose to sing directly from a collection of church hymnals that I have managed to carry with me over the years.'

Not one to feel fenced in by creative boundaries, Stella. took on the rigors of the theatre, starring in four New York touring productions, including Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas, Pump Boys and Dinettes, and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Stella. has been featured in such films as "Cloud Dancer," "The Loner" and "Country Gold." Her work in television has included "The Dukes of Hazzard" and the CBS-TV movie, "The Color of Love," co-starring Lou Gossett, Jr. and Gina Rowlands.

Stella.'s love for cooking resulted in her authoring two recipe-packed cookbooks, Really Cookin' (Vol. 1) and Country Cookin'. A third collection, Stella's Really Cookin', is slated for release this year. She also has appeared on The Home Shopping Network with her Taste of Life all natural food products.

But entertainment is not the only area where Stella. shines. She devotes much of her time to causes like domestic violence and, typical of her hands-on approach, teaches at The New Opportunity School for Women at Berea College in Berea, KY, utilizing her knowledge of hair and makeup to help women build self-esteem. She also has a thriving consulting business, Attic Entertainment Artist Development and Entertainment consulting, teaching stage presence, hair, makeup, wardrobe techniques and video coaching.

Stella.'s desire and ability to relate to people from all walks of life, coupled with her diverse talents, are qualities that have made her one of America's richest musical treasures.
