“Stefani is everything you want and need in a promotion person,” says Stoney Creek VP of Promotion, Byron Kennedy. “Stefani was my rep when I programmed for CBSRadio/ KSFM Sacramento a few years back and I was immediately impressed by her creativity and ability to keep me focused on her records while my attention was split between formats. I feel extremely lucky to have gotten her to move over to country and join Stoney Creek Records and the truth is I BEGGED HER TO. She is someone who I feel will make not only Stoney Creek Records better but Broken Bow Records/BMG as whole. We have undoubtedly landed a ROCKSTAR!”
