Stevie McGee’s gift is her passion for life and for music. She delivers songs with heart and casual elegance in what has been described as “a mesmerizing voice.”
Born in Dodge City, Kansas, November 4, 1987, Stevie was raised on a Southwest Kansas ranch where she lived and learned the lifestyle of the Western working family. Stevie attended a small school and participated in sports and Skills USA as well as having many music opportunities. She graduated as salutatorian of her class. She was active in leading music for her church and youth group with the Praise and Worship team.
A natural performer, Stevie has lived a life full of music, singing, playing keyboard, and the guitar at the side of her family. Her father, Tony, accompanying her on guitar, her brother, Levi, adding his percussionist talent to the band and singing harmony with her mother, Elaine, and now, writing songs with her husband, Andrew, has given her a rich heritage of music. She began singing as early as ten years old for various activities and has since performed for music events throughout Kansas, Colorado, many other states, and even Germany.
No biography about Stevie would be complete without mentioning the tremendous inspiration that she has gained from country music singer, Martina McBride. She has great respect for the integrity that Martina brings to her career by helping people and maintaining an honest lifestyle. In 2006, Stevie was honored to be asked by Martina’s parents, Daryl and Jeanne Schiff to perform before Martina and a host of other guests. Other vocalists that Stevie admires are Rachael Lampa and Celine Dion. Stevie’s daily walk in the Christian faith is remembering what Christ has done for her and is her motivation to help others. She claims Hebrews 12:1-3 as her life verses, “…and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus…”.
Stevie currently lives in El Dorado, Kansas where she is working as a part-time worship leader as well as teaching vocal lessons. Stevie and her family are deeply involved in several different bands. Check out the BAND OPTIONS page to see all of their different activities! Stevie and ROAD 23 released their first CD, Shattered Day, in mid-October, 2009. Their second CD, Refuge, is scheduled to be released summer 2012. A new CD is in the works with Stevie and her dad!
Stevie McGee is a vocalist and musician who earnestly desires to glorify God with her voice and ministry. Her life goal is to develop a ministry with her music where she can earn a living, help others, and reach out to people with the gospel of Christ.
