Side Bangs is the boundary-breaking music of singer, songwriter, and guitarist, Stephanie Rodgers.


Inspired by the likes of PJ Harvey, Modest Mouse, A Perfect Circle, Nine Inch Nails, Incubus, LCD Soundsystem, David Bowie, Portishead, Dolly Parton, Lady Gaga, and Mariah Carey, Side Bangs delivers unique melodies, captivating vocals, and lyrics you can’t get out of your head.


Before Side Bangs, Rodgers worked in politics and finance. In late 2019, she set out on a mission to formally produce some of the songs she wrote as a hobby. Over time, this creative side project blossomed into something bigger than she ever expected.


Rodgers was born and raised in the rural Appalachian village of Dresden, Ohio (Population: 1,600) and is now based in Brooklyn, New York.
