STEPHANIE MAYERS- Owner/Founder
Stephanie fell into the kids’ music world in 2004 while managing publicity at World Cafe Live, a groundbreaking concert venue in Philadelphia. There she created and produced the Best of Philly award winning kids’ concert series Peanut Butter & Jams, built relationships with the leading artists and radio programmers in family music and established a keen insight into an emerging industry.
In 2008 Stephanie co-founded KindieFest, the world’s first-ever family music conference that fully embraced the current market in all its diversity. Focusing exclusively on music for kids and families, KindieFest helped uncover the fastest-growing segment of the music business: family entertainment. The conference ran independently until 2013 where it culminated with a hugely successful event at BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) in Brooklyn, NY.
After leaving Philadelphia, Stephanie spent three years in Manhattan at Putumayo World Music as Promotion and Event Director for the international record label (including its widely acclaimed Putumayo Kids imprint). Beginning in 2010 she then spent five years in Brooklyn as General Manager of Festival Five Records, home of Grammy award winner and family music pioneer Dan Zanes, which remains a client of Mayers Consulting.
