Stephanie Carlisi writes Songs & Stories.
She performs her original material at live music venues around Los Angeles.
Stephanie’s stories have been published by Elephant Journal and The Fix (coming 10/15/15).
She worked as a personal/executive assistant/temporary development executive in the entertainment industry for fifteen years (namely Paramount Pictures & CBS) while developing her creative writing skills and projects.
During that time, Stephanie’s artisit path lead her into music when JD Souther (Eagles, Linda Ronstadt) hired her to transcribe his journals for his upcoming album, “If The World Was You” (2008), on which he thanked her for “rendering lyric clarity from chaos.” In working with Souther’s lyrics, Stephanie realized she might have her own knack for songwriting.
Souther encouraged Stephanie to put her words to music and she went on to collaborate with Los Angeles artists, songwriters and producers in creating her burgeoning catalog of songs. She taught herself to write songs on guitar and began performing her material. As well, she wrote a novel inspired by her experience working for a legendary songwriter and, in turn, becoming a songwriter herself. Her songs offer a soundtrack for the story.
She has co-written three television pilots and a sci-fi feature film script.
