ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
As a composer Stephanie Sante is inspired by a diversity of musical styles. Her musical influences have been equally diverse from Kenny Burrell and Carlos Antonio Jobim to Sade and Brian Eno

As a music major in college she studied piano performance. After college she developed a love for guitar which led to the Conservatory of Guitar and Voice, where she studied Classical and Flamenco Guitar under the stewardship of Concert Classical Guitarist Lamar Eskelson. During this time her focus further diversified to include World, Bossa and Ambient styles of music.

Her inital three releases focused on the Ambient genre. Into Light and Inner Beauty garnered critical acclaim in 2000-2001 from New Age Voice Magazine

After her third release she crossed-over from Ambient to Chill.

Her fourth release Coffee Culture introduced a mix of Chillout grooves stylistically covering Lounge, NuJazz, Acid Jazz, Bossa and World Beat. Coffee Culture was awarded "Best Concept Album" by Muses Muse in 2005.

Shine (ep) her latest release blends the styles of NuJazz, Bossa, Downtempo, Lounge and World into a perfect place for chilling out

She composes music using a combination of acoustic and software instruments. As a multi-instrumentalist she performs most of the music with the exception of samples and looping techniques for creating beat tracks.

Her music is enthusiastically embraced by media, DJ's and listeners around the globe and is featured on streaming, satellite, syndicated, FM and Pod Casts.

Bill Binkelman - Wind and Wire

some of the best music I imagine I'll hear this year
I love it! I mean, I really LOVE it. Criss-crossing between jazz fusion, progressive, and subtle world beat, with side trips into electronica and fleeting glimpses of ambient and new age, Sante displays what has seldom been apparent on previous recordings, i.e., this woman has some serious chops on her ax! Many times, songs feature multi-tracked tear-it-up rhythm guitar, churning away on short chords with crisp technique while tasty solos are layered on top of the bed of the rhythm, electro and acoustic beats, and assorted synth textures.

Gian Fiero - Muses Muse

I was both sucked in and blown away - at the same time.
This stellar status of this project can be attributed to its clever blend of ambient, jazz, and world music genres that benefit commercially from a subtle integration of electronica. Stephanie's many musical influences shine through in direct and indirect ways, but it's her mastery of creating stimulating arrangements and provocative compositions that are the key selling points to this project, and the real joy for music lovers who are in the mood for "something different."

Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck - Evolving Artists

enough spice and variety to keep the most finicky listener on their toes and int
She invites you inside her instrumental compositions with a beautiful combination of guitar, world rhythms and beats with just enough electronic sounds and textures stirred into the mix to make it interesting and inviting enough to keep you listening in anticipation of what could be coming next.
