Stephanie Rebecca comes out of (believe it or not!), Ketchikan, Alaska, “swinging hard”! Born in Sitka in 1984, Stephanie spent her musical formative years in the vibrant arts community of Ketchikan. Jazz was always a major element in her upbringing, beginning with announcing songs on her Dad’s long running public radio show, “Sunday Jazz”. Stephanie continued her musical instruction with, Whitecliff elementary music teacher and trumpeter, Dale Curtis, and was cultivated by the McPherson jazz bands. Stephanie was first revealed by ‘First City Players” Jazz Cabaret performances.
Stephanie relocated to Washington, DC early in 2012 to get closer to the jazz scene. Shortly thereafter she began associating with, Jazz Artist, Bandleader, Producer and Musical Director, “EC3". With the release of her first debut CD, “Deep Inside of Me” she enters the world of jazz. She has a seasoned understanding of jazz standards and is in many ways, “an old soul” in a young frame.
Stephanie, frequently, performs at HR57 in Washington DC, and will be special guest of EC3’s at Blues Alley on March 6, 2013, in Georgetown.
