Stephanie Wagner Founder/Operator
NYCountry Swag Founder and Operator Stephanie Wagner grew up on the water in Broad Channel, a small island community in Jamaica Bay, Queens, NY. After studying Business Management, Stephanie continued to pursue a career in event management with IGC Hospitality, a thriving food and beverage company primarily located in New York City.
After organizing several successful country music-themed events with IGC, she recognized the niche, untapped market of country music in New York City. In an effort to tie two things she loved together, country music and special events, Stephanie founded NYCountry Swag in December of 2015.
She gives credit to her mother for her fascination with the music world. Whether late nights of watching music videos, music awards shows, or any type of music documentary together or listening to her mom sing along to music from the greats like Patsy Cline, Elvis Presley, or Pat Benatar, when she thinks of her first memories of music, Stephanie thinks of her mom.
Fun Fact – “Swag” was a nickname given to Stephanie long before the start of NYCountry Swag. The name is a play on her own name and initials, S WAGner.
Christina Bosch studied Communications & Media Studies at Adelphi University. She joined the NYCountry Swag team as Managing Editor in September 2017 and is thrilled to help curate content and be a part of a team that helps to grow the brand as New York’s leading go-to for all things country music.
She gives credit to her mom for her love of country music, growing up she listened to Garth Brooks and the Dixie Chicks, which has shaped her love for the genre today. With a background in journalism as well as digital marketing Christina brings an array of insights and looks forward to expanding her knowledge of the music industry.
She loves learning the stories behind her favorite songs and discovering and highlighting new artists and songwriters. In September of 2018, she welcomed her first child, Jack and she can’t wait to cultivate his love for country music as he gets older. She can be reached at [email protected] or @Christinaabosch on Instagram.
