Welcome Back to Unity of SA, Stephanie!
Singer/Songwriter Stephanie Urbina Jones returns to Unity of SA this coming Sunday, December 4, for our 11:00 a.m. service. She was born in a bi-cultural home in San Antonio, Texas, where she grew up hearing sounds from both sides of the border. Jones learned early about the power of storytelling through song and created a Latin country rock style all her own. Drawing from her passion for honoring her heritage through her music, she became the first independent female to reach #1 on the Texas Music chart.
She is not only a proven songwriter and vocalist, she is a passionate performer with a presence and spirit that is infectious. Her Mexican heritage plays a strong role in her music but does not limit her as she transcends all borders of the entertainment world.
Stephanie has been featured in Billboard, Rolling Stone Country, Headline News, UK Herald, Maverick Magazine, San Antonio Express-News, Houston Chronicle, Austin American-Statesman, Texas Music Magazine, La Prensa (a Spanish language newspaper), Performing Songwriter Magazine, and Country Weekly.
Her heart, musical direction, and dedication to helping others were shaped by growing up in San Antonio, where her grandmother, Señora Jones, served as the unofficial welcome wagon for immigrants, whom she helped navigate in this strange new world while finding them jobs and housing. “I spent Sunday afternoons at my abuelita’s (grandmother’s) house where we would have barbecues in her backyard, listening to country greats like Waylon and Willie as well as border music from Mexico while mariachis rehearsed in the neighborhood. I was blessed to soak up all of these different cultures and music as a child.”
Stephanie is a self-described “believer and dreamer” whose strength is as fierce as her talent and love. “Step by step, song by song, I moved…to a life of love, passion, and purpose.”
Stephanie now resides in Nashville and tours frequently. We are blessed that she is back in the area and will join us this Sunday. To learn more about her and order her music, go to her website, stephanieurbinajones.com
