All Night Long

Hey peeps!

I have had the pleasure of working with this incredible producer named Derrick Smith and together we have completed quite a few songs. 

We met years ago at an open mic competition at Soul Cafe in NYC that was hosted by Lenny Green and Shayla from 98.7 Kiss FM NY. That was about ten years ago and still, we have a great musical relationship that has resulted in some wonderful songs.

One of the songs is entitled, "All Night Long," a song about the joy of music and enjoying the beauty of it. 

I just added this song to my music library and would like to invite you in to listen to it and if you like it please download. Here is the link:

I have been in the works of trying to get this song out into the public with hopes people will enjoy what they hear. I have been performing it at my shows and have just recently produced a video for it which is now available for viewing on Youtube.  If you have time, please check out my video on Youtube here and leave a comment because I need all the support I can get:

Thank you in advance for checking out my video.

Last night, I was blessed with the opportunity to be interviewed on the On the Edge Radio Show by Kaydee Barnett and my song "All Night Long" was featured in the program as well as "I'll Be There" which was completed with another incredible producer and mentor, Fred Simmons. What an incredible opportunity. If interested in listening to last nights live broadcast, check out the link here:

Finally, I will be performing some of my original songs this coming Thursday night, May 1, 2014 at Brooklyn Nights located at 497 Dekalb Avenue in Brooklyn, NY. 

There will be a live band there featuring Michael Collins on keys, Mark Payne on drums and Trey Sharpe on bass. Hosted by myself and TRP, it will be a nice musical event.

This amazing event will also featured music from TRP (rapper), Jazz-E-Matt (singer), Marissa Cayaso (singer), and Stewart Thomas (singer) just to name a few. 

The event will begin at 8PM - 9PM with happy hour consisting of food and drink specials and then from 9PM artist showcase will run til about midnight.

Hoping you will come to listen, party, or maybe to even jump on the mic and do your thing as well.

Hoping to see you there!!!

I Appreciate God for Making Me A Musician

I appreciate music. But never considered myself a musician until I considered that my main instrument was hand-made by God. Imagine that!

It's funny!  I remember when I was kid, my parents gave me a keyboard and I would always toil with it every now and again but always focused on my voice more; and writing. I am a poet first; since grade school. 

I guess you can say my limited piano skills help me to create tracks because I am a songwriter who loves to write not only lyrics but the music behind it. Like in this song "Appreciate;" a song to honor and thank God for the wonderful talent of being a musician. It was created with Cakewalk Sonar and my Korg Triton LE (straight up audio). Check it out here:

Passion Run Wild (a poem)

Whoever said it was easy to have a song
bursting out your seams
when you're not on the scene 
of that foreseen dream
but on another theme
at your desk doing the 9 to 5 scheme
when you feel it soul deep
that one thing that makes you complete, 
knows what it's like 
to be living with a passion. 

Who cares to see tears flow?
Passersby don't care to know.
Might consider you crazy though!
Not knowing what you crying for. 
Yet that one thing in your core;
that very thing your heart yearns for
turns your 9 to 5 into undesired labor
and pierces at your chambers 
yet you must endure;
while fighting back tears and 
dreaming about your passion. 

The alarm sounds and starts you on your daily grind
but all you want to do is live your dream and fly; 
acting it out in your mind
with HD colors like a movie screen; paradise. 
Still you force yourself to do what's required
to survive in this world even if life don't come with a smile; 
and just to make it through without breaking, you pray all the while
because your dreams seem to continuously awaken your innerchild. 
And that song in your heart, untriedly breaks through running wild
your individuality that builds your profile
while that song and dance never stops creeping in your mind 
until you give in to live that passion REM trialed. 

(I am a singer and songwriter with a passion for music and a lot of times write love songs about music; my first love. Like the song "Passionate Breeze." I posted the song on my Reverbnation page. Please check it out here: )

Twirls of Swirls and Trumpet Curls (A Poem)

Twirls of Swirls and Trumpet Curls (A Poem)
(C) By Stephanie Jeannot

The mic was peaking like the Kilimanjaro;
killing ears and causing peers to steer
and flooding river beds til fixed. Started trends
of dance phases and booty shakes until the end 
of the song escaping from the falsetto send.

The harmony started calming me
but was stopped when the alarm in me
was set off by rain pouring over me
from a twirling being doing circus tricks;
trumpet twirls that landed spit
all over my face. That's what I call a true taste
ofcalls and escapes, when I got a case 
of slob on my face, that from my mind will never be erased

3:4 Music Roll (Poetry)

I missed a day of poetry within this national poetry month which inspired the title of this poem: 3:4 Music Roll. Please read and enjoy.

3:4 Music Roll
By Stephanie Jeannot

I can't stand the rainof 
Or Monday mornings
Or snow cleaning
Or having doubts 
Or being sick
Or being stuck
Without a paycheck
Or experiencing blues
Or all the bad news
On the news
That give me blues
And attitudes
On Monds and Tues
Those working days
Of routined grooves 
That seem to loop
Around the course
our money source 
And ways of life
Or ways to climb
The mountain side
But what I do love
I think I need more of
Days of sun
And music love
For perfect is
The day that brings
A melody
The chemistry
The energy
That I receive
Just seems so me
Like a pure need
To wash away
The blues of day
Music makes
Everything okay

Have an awesome Friday. That you might experience joy in your day. Please check out my original tune Fluttering here: 

That the content of it, may wash over your day and bring a smile to your face. Enjoy!
