Stephanie Schneiderman http://nyc.thedelimagazine.com/node/1536
Stephanie Schneiderman is a Northwest staple, so I won’t go on and on about her past, but I do have to give some major kudos where it is deserved. Not only is she this amazing mix of Sade, Amy Lee and Stevie Knicks, but she also acts, raises large amounts of money for humanitarian issues, and moonlights in her successful side band Dirty Martini.
Schneiderman has released six solo albums and two collaborative albums, and has impressed the likes of well known electronic musician/producer/DJ Keith Schreiner and James Beaton of Storm and the Balls, both of whom collaborated with her on her last album Dangerous Fruit.
What I appreciate the most about her music, though, is her eclectic mix - one minute she sounds a little country, the next she throws down some Latin beats, and then she goes a little gangsta on us and sings with a T-Pain style voice box.
If you can only see one band this week, this month, or this year, I recommend it be her. Stephanie Schneiderman, Garrison Starr and Pat Kearns from Blue Skies For Black Hearts will be at Mississippi Studios this Saturday, May 1st, at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10.
