Stefanie Ann Sargent (June 1, 1968 – June 27, 1992) was an American musician. She was the lead guitarist and co-founder of Seattle punk rock band 7 Year Bitch.[1][2]


Sargent was born to Paula and Kenneth Sargent on June 1, 1968, in Seattle. She grew up in Seattle and attended Roosevelt High, then transferred to the Summit K-12 Alternative School, and graduated high school at age 16.[3]

After graduating, Sargent worked in various jobs and traveled through the West Coast, having played in several bands before 1990, when she co-founded 7 Year Bitch alongside Selene Vigil, Valerie Agnew and Elizabeth Davis. She played guitar in the band's debut record, Sick 'Em (1992).


Sargent was found dead in her Capitol Hill apartment on June 27, 1992. She had passed out on her back after returning home from a party where she had drunk alcohol and taken a small amount of heroin. She died of asphyxiation when she failed to wake up after vomiting. She was 24.
