singer/songwriter to heartfelt electronica pop queen.

Alberta Rose Theatre, 3000 NE Alberta) Stephanie Schneiderman's 2008 album Dangerous Fruit was a major shift from the acoustic folk sound of her previous five albums. Working with electronic producer Keith Schreiner, she transformed from mere singer/songwriter to heartfelt electronica pop queen. The two musicians have fine-tuned this metamorphosis with a second collaboration entitled Rubber Teardrop. Schreiner is versatile, moving through ambient background textures to upbeat dance tempos, always coming up with just the right landscape for Schneiderman's moving lyrics. Together they've found a formula that renews the relevance of a talented songwriter and opens all kinds of possibilities for respectfully expanding into the larger pop music realm. AVA HEGEDUS
