About Stoni

This edgy powerhouse is a Brooklyn, NY native who grew up listening to everything from Bob Marley and Stevie Wonder to Prince and The Rolling Stones. While interning at several major recording studios in New York City, Stoni gained a vast knowledge of the inner workings of the music and recording industry and discovered a love for sound design. It was her competitive nature that drove her to become first female producer to ever compete in a beat battle and win. She was also the first female to compete in and win an international beat battle title. Stoni has been featured in several magazines, including being the first female music producer featured in Scratch Magazine, the hip hop music producer’s bible. 

Trailblazer” should be her middle name, because Stoni never follows trends, she creates them. Not one for sitting still, she is constantly learning and mastering the intricacies of music production hardware and software, as well as being dead center on the pulse of the music industry. She broke barriers again 3 years ago by becoming the first female producer to be a featured artist and software demonstrator for Native Instruments. When that was no longer enough of a challenge for her, she changed directions once again and began working with music technology transforming company, Roli. Working as a Research and Development contributor for the newly released Roli consumer product “Blocks”, her knowledge and mastery of music seems to have no boundaries.

Stoni is also in the studio right now working on new music to be released in the Winter of 2017. Using Native Instruments’ Maschine and the Ableton Push as her weapons of choice, Stoni is taking music making to a whole new level. Having mastered the most popular production tools of the music industry, the sky’s the limit.
