Steph Maksimow

Hailing from New York, Stephanie is a wanderlusty soul who has found herself living all over the country - from Long Island, to South Florida, New England, and now based in Seattle, Washington. From a very young age, Steph has been surrounded by music, making her love for various genres and the industry itself feel natural. As early as age 3, she started singing and dancing, playing piano and violin, and engulfed herself in the world of entertainment. Steph attributes her passion for music to her mom, who was the Editor of Awaken Magazine and organizer for YesFest, which praised the highly notable progressive rock band, Yes. Stephanie tagged along behind the scenes at concerts and conventions, developing her familiarity with the industry and touring scene at a very young age. Her mom later married a songwriter and record engineer who featured Stephanie’s voice on several tracks of his self-produced album with his band Un1son, and guided her to learn more about the industry itself. As time went on, her infatuation with music grew and she emerged herself into the local music scene, tackling everything from artist management to touring, production, and promotion. In her college years, Stephanie worked as a Street Team Leader for Fueled By Ramen Records and co-managed several local bands, sending the road warrior on adventures all over the country including The Bamboozle and Vans Warped Tour.

I joined Music Biz Besties because I am looking to network with more like-minded industry folks and would love to chat about how we can work together!
