The first thing you notice when you meet Steff Mahan is that she feels like an old friend – albeit a very gifted one. Her accessibility, as well as her singular talent, has been key in building a loyal fan base that most artists can only fantasize about.
It’s no wonder. From the very beginning of her career, Mahan has told their stories – of family, the drive to pursue dreams despite the odds, the magic of falling in love, the pain of surviving broken hearts, and the singular joy of finding love again. She does it all in well-honed three-minute bites that continually show that she gets it, she gets you, she’s been there, and she feels it all with you. She lets her audiences in, creating the atmosphere of a house party, sharing both her hilarious takes on the world and some of her most personal experiences. That authenticity has remained a shining light that draws people to her like a porch light welcoming them home.
Mahan remains the mythical road dog, taking her music to the fans wherever they may be. She has played venues large and small around the country, including such mainstays as Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta, Third & Lindsley in Nashville, the Walnut Room in Denver, and the famous Red Clay Theater in Duluth.
She has performed unique double bills with comedians Jenny McNulty and Suzanne Westenhoffer. She has also been a part of some impressive music collectives, most recently with fellow Nashville powerhouses Cheley Tackett and Ashley McBryde in their raucous side project, Shotgun Oakley. She was even honored by the Q Television Network with a full-length special recorded live in Nashville.
With five albums under her belt and a new one in preproduction, Mahan continues to build a strong body of work that reflects her unique voice and her years of honing her craft in the Nashville publishing industry.
She is on the road and doing what she does best – connecting with people where they are through her quirky, warm personality, heartfelt storytelling, and a talent that won’t be denied. She does it because, like all true artists, she simply can’t not do it. Once you hear her, you’ll know that that’s the biggest gift of all to those of us who love great music.
