Overwhelmed

Music keeps me high and so does the writing and creating new content. 

Like for instance, I wrote this song about love and entitled it "Overwhelmed" because the feelings of love got me feeling that way. Me being an emotional person, it is no surprise that love could have me going in circles.



If you are interested, please check it out. I just added it to my playlist on Reverbnation. Here is the link: http://www.reverbnation.com/stephanayjnote/song/21223089-overwhelmed

All lyrics and vocals by Stephanie Jeannot. Music by Mike Leshore for Chocc Fact Productions.

Thank you for checking out my blog post and please do enjoy the rest of this wonderful weekend.

Keying in Something Different

Saturday night, June 14, 2014, was a new and exciting experience for me.

See! I'm a singer and often go out with a heart to share my talent. No different this Saturday that just passed. I was ready to sing and do my thing, but something amped me to bring my keys.

I was invited to sing at the Poetry in Motion Event  at the Box in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn. I am loving the idea of discovering new venues in a Brooklyn, NY that provide and are open to entertainment of this sort.


Poetry in motion was hosted by Sir Miles High. With his gracious character and inviting appeal, he welcomed everybody in the place that night with humbling love.

Some of the artist that were scheduled to perform were Ras Osagyefo, Lady Moon and Jaydon, just to name a few. The show included a mixture of poetry and music and was awesome. The drummer was on fire and so was the crowd getting amped by the energy each performance came with.

When it comes to the keys, I use them basically to create new musical tracks or to practice singing scales and that's it. Yet this past weekend, I took out my keyboards, my stand and amp, set it up and when it was my turn to perform, I got behind it to play and sing.



How crazy. Wasn't bad. But good to know I can do it because I tried it and cannot wait to experience it once again. I keyed in something new into my life.

Live Performance on Sistah Talk TV 5/31/2014

What a day it was on May 31, 2014. 

I have performed my music often but never in a live setting as it was; and when I say live I mean live.

I was invited by Zakkee Newman, producer of Sistah Talk TV, to perform live and to also be interviewed on his television production. Deitra Kelsey is the host of Sistah Talk TV and with all her warmth and grace, made it all that it was to be.



Sistah Talk TV is taped live in real time at MNN Studios located at 537 59th Street in New York City and aired on Time Warner Cable Channel 34, Verizon Fios Channel 33, RCN Cable Channel 82 and www.mnn.org/live/1-community-channel beginning a 2PM ET, 1PM CT, 12PM MT, 11AM PT, and at 7PM in the UK.

Together with the Musiqal Ones Band featuring Coby Briggs on drums, Michael Collins on keys, Ron Collins on sax, Jazz-E-Matt on vocals, Dalthannette Munlin on vocals, Mark Payne on bass, we performed three original tunes, two covers and a medley to celebrate both the commencement of Black Music Month and the late Maya Angelou.

Thankful to my girl Corinne for helping me with my makeup and for Kelsey and Newman for making it such a comfortable experience, despite the nervousness and stress from traveling woes to get there.  

But we did it! There is a first time for everything and as artists I believe we grow from that moment.  Thankful for that moment.  It is definitely an experience I will cherish for the rest of my existence. If you missed the performance, it will be aired again next Saturday at 2PM at 2PM, simply turn your tv to the indicated television channel at prompt of your hour in your time zone or log on to the website at the prompt of your indicate time zone. 

I would like to invite you to check out one of the original tunes we performed. The song is called "I'll Be there" and is currently available on ITUNES. Please check it out here:
