Stolie is a musical entertainer and entrepreneur with over 25 years of experience on stage and in the music industry. Songwriter to over 100 published songs, she is a multi-instrumentalist, a versatile vocalist, a full studio package acting as arranger, producer and engineer, a flawless loop-pedal artist, and a bilingual traveling solo performer.
Originally from Chicago, IL, Stolie debuted her first batch of original music on cassette in the mid-90s. Full-time since 2007, and over a dozen albums later, Stolie now spends the winter months living and playing in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, México, and summers touring throughout the US and Canada, performing for both adults and for children (as Super Stolie).
Stolie started using loop pedals in 2003 to layer beats and harmonies and incorporate rhythms and beatbox, creating full arrangements on the fly. Her seamless technique was captured in a live performance on November 10, 2018; Live at the Listening Room Phoenix is available as a digital download and now as USB Bracelet.
Stolie has toured extensively throughout the US and Canada in support of her original music. She's shared bills with musicians like Neko Case, Willy Porter and Vance Gilbert, collaborated with songwriters Victoria Vox and Dave Tamkin, contributed vocals to recordings by Chicago bands J Davis Trio and Dan Darrah, and hosted special guests on her open mic stages like comedians, Hannibal Buress and Michael Palascak, and musician, Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam.
Performing more than 200 shows each year for both adult and children audiences, Stolie’s forte is charming the crowd at her live shows, no matter what age they may be. Music brings people together, and Stolie is the ringmaster who carries us through the emotions, one unique space at a time.
Stolie's latest musical offering, "Contagious: Live at Incanto Vallarta" was her last public performance before all entertainment venues would be shut down to the the spread of COVID-19. The show shadows this uneasiness, and instead offers a good dose of comic relief in what some of us would come to know as the last bit of human connection we'd experience for quite a while. In the spirit of St. Patrick's Day and with drinks a-flowing, we found reasons to laugh and enjoy being in a moment... together.
