Side Bangs is the boundary breaking project of Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Steph Rodgers. With sounds that evoke comparisons to the likes of Mazzy Star and Modest Mouse, Side Bangs welcomes the listener into a world of psychedelic rock infused with grunge, jazz, pop, and ultimately, vulnerable storytelling. Born and raised in Appalachia, Ohio, Rodgers previously made her living working in politics and finance. At night, Rodgers turned to writing songs on her guitar as a way to wind down from her hectic days in the office. In 2020, she took a step back from corporate life and started recording her music, resulting in a debut album to be released later this year.
