Rising out of the hills of Central Pennsylvania as a tenacious female-fronted outlaw country band, Stephanie & the Wild Hearts (formerly known as "The Chrome Hearts") are living proof that raw talent, ambition and honesty can still prevail in a fiercely competitive music industry.
The groups founders Bob Onkst and wife Stephanie of Hollidaysburg are proud to be backed with the right accompanying musicians and perform as a full five-piece band. Their acoustic off-shoot, "Wild Desire" is also gaining popularity in the Central Pennsylvania region. First formed by request of venues and fans alike, Bob & Stephanie can, and have, entertained audiences that include pre-k to retirement communities.
Stephanie & the Wild Hearts have aligned their unwavering dedication to the do-it-yourself work ethic with a signature outlaw country sound. TCH fits in somewhere in between the genres of country and rock & roll.. The bands raw energy in their stand-out original songs such as “Jealous Of You”, “Money”, and “Oh NO” speaks to audiences as the songs strike a nerve both lyrically and musically. Their debut album, "Oh No" is now available in physical copies now! We are proud to have worked with this area's best Producer/Audio Engineer team, Mark Ross & Bill Filer at Audible Images Studios in Port Matilda, PA.
The future of Stephanie & the Wild Hearts and where we are going is limitless. We've gone from playing only local shows to performing at festivals and fairs throughout PA. We are proud to have played at such venues such as: The Grange Fair (opened for The Voice Favorite Josh Gallagher & American Idol Alum. Gabby Barrett), the People's Choice Festival. the Fulton County Fair, Hollidaysburg Wing Festival, Williamsburg Community Farm Show, The Burning Bridge Tavern in Wrightsville, PA, The Troubadour Lounge & Bar in Berkeley Springs, WV, a private party for President Jimmy Carter, and so many more. We are set to continue to exceed expectations and follow this musical journey as far as it takes us!
