When people ask who I sound like, I jokingly reply back with 2Pac. I think of myself as being unique having an eclectic taste in music, so it's hard to compare myself to others. I have been linked with Joni Mitchell, Colbie Caillat, and other talented musicians. Listen and decide for yourself..

Biography

Up and coming singer/songwriter Stefanie Smerkers was born and raised in South Florida. She has been singing since in her words, "the womb." With influences from just about every genre, she has a very unique style. One of the things that sets her apart from the norm is she is classically trained and has a background in musical theatre. "There's something about the stage that's both comforting and frightening to me all at the same time. I love it; it's home," says Smerkers.

Careless and Carefree

Careless and Carefree
Music and Lyrics by: Stefanie Smerkers

Practical is overrated
And dreams are often downgraded
We watch as our lives go by
As the fear seeps in and sucks us dry
And the cycle repeats as we continue to be
Exactly the same believing we’re free

I dare you to dream
To look yourself straight in the eye
I dare you to dream
Don’t knock it until you try
I dare you

There’s so much more than that box you’re in
Step outside and let your life begin
Exactly as you wish to be
No worries, careless and carefree
To want not as a foolish phase
But like the simplicity of your early days

I dare you to dream
To look yourself straight in the eye
I dare you to dream
Don’t knock it until you try
I dare you

Get your head out of your hands
Don’t stress there’s no need to plan
It will all come together in the end
Just find yourself and make amends

I dare you to dream
To look yourself straight in the eye
I dare you to dream
Don’t knock it until you try
I dare you

I dare you

Everything's Ok

Everything’s Ok
Music and Lyrics By: Stefanie Smerkers

Looking at you I enter a new world
My momentary break from reality
And my temporary lapse of pain
My inability to focus suddenly changes
My attention span grows each second
You’re the closest thing to perfect I have ever seen
And I want you locked into my memory
My memory

I don’t know how you do it
Completely effortless, you don’t even have to try
Yet you make everything ok
Somehow I know that everything’s gonna’ be ok
Everything’s ok

Strange how I don’t think to question it
I guess you can’t break what’s already broken
And maybe, just maybe you can be the one to fix me
‘Cause everything’s always better when you’re around
You create a stillness I don’t understand
That gives me peace of mind, even with the distance
Rebound? Well, probably. But that doesn’t change the fact that
No it doesn’t change the fact that

I don’t know how you do it
Completely effortless, you don’t even have to try
Yet you make everything ok
Somehow I know that everything’s gonna’ be ok
I know that everything’s ok
Everything’s ok
