Growing up in Stavely Alberta, Stokes spent time in her parents' small-town bar, and at eight years old, was sneaking in on Friday afternoons to sing with the local jam band and has been pursing music ever since. In 2019, Stokes opened for RuPaul's Drag Race superstar Trixie Mattel and Canadian pop sweetheart Jocelyn Alice in Calgary, Alberta. She was selected to work with Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame Inductee Terri Clark at National Music Centre in Calgary, Alberta during her RBC Masters in Residence Program and was a top three finisher for Project WILD, which is a country-focused artist development program run by Alberta Music and WILD 95.3 (Calgary).
Stokes cares deeply about her community and worked on two records with the Calgary Drop-In and Rehab Centre, independently created and executed two coat drives for the Centre, and produced a Live Band Karaoke fundraiser in support of the Women's Centre of Calgary. Currently, she is one of three Artist in Residence for the Women's Centre of Calgary in 2020.
