Caged, Walk On, and Better Words were co-written by Stephanie's dear friend Kristen Blum. Stephanie and Kristen often play in local venues in the New Jersey/Pennsylvania area. Caged is an anthem written for anyone feeling stuck in a relationship, in a job, or in anything. There is a way out. Walk On was written for a Brain Tumor Walk-a-thon to inspire those diagnosed and the friends and families in their support system. Better Words was written for anyone in love who feels like the words "I love you" just aren't enough.
Life is Good was co-written by producer Bhauraw Avhad of Vrtigo Music. Stephanie wrote this to remind herself that no matter what's going on, no matter how bad things may seem, there is always love to look to and guide your way.
Essence was written as Stephanie's vision of what her dream love would be. She heard from several authors and speakers that one should write down one's vision of their dreams in life and in love in order to help manifest them. She wrote the words and woke up in the middle of the night with the melody. A couple of years after writing the song, she was blessed to find her true love.
Stephanie wrote Nothing Like for her true love.
House of the Rising Sun is on this album only because she finds it's so fun to sing!
