Album Notes
There are two versions of this CD titled "Through the Storm". This one from 2009 is a re-release and has the original 11 tracks plus two new tracks for a total of 13 tracks. The new tracks are "Mercy Street" by Peter Gabriel and "Mangolia" by Richie Havens. Both are available on CD Baby.

In recording “Through the Storm” (Expanded Version), I was inspired to capture the expressivity of the human voice with the cello. The songs are arranged for cello only, sometimes as a solo voice, sometimes for cello quartet and on several cuts, for cello orchestra. I play all the parts myself. My producer Alan Williams and I utilized pop recording techniques by multi-tracking without a conductor and often without a click track (metronome). People tell me that the cello is their favorite instrument. Because of this, I wanted to explore the tonal colors, resonance and beauty of the cello as a way of expressing something larger and more beautiful than just one woman playing the cello. I’m excited that this Expanded Version of “Through the Storm” has two additional tracks, “Mercy Street” by Peter Gabriel and “Magnolia” by Ritchie Havens.

Stephanie Winters is a New York-based performance expert, who uses the vehicle of music to give people the tools to experience their own potential for excellence in the workplace and fulfillment in all areas of their life. A cellist with a wide-ranging career as a speaker and performing artist, for more than twenty years she has toured extensively in North America; more recently, she has also performed in Europe and Southeast Asia. She is known for her solo recording, Through the Storm (reissued 2009), her concert-keynotes and workshops in the corporate world. Stephanie has worked with Robin Spielberg, Richie Havens and Dar Williams. Her TV credits include performances with Corrine Bailey Rae and Ellie Goulding on Saturday Night Live, Enya on Regis and Kelly, and with Richie Havens for the 2008 Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony, which was broadcast worldwide to millions.

Stephanie has spoken and performed at leadership training events for the World Bank, UK Sport Peak Performance Conference, United Nations Development Program and International Finance Corporation - as well as at universities in the United States, United Kingdom, Malaysia and Thailand.

Her most recent project Titanic Tales: Stories of Courage and Cowardice was co-created with her husband Duncan McCargo, the British author and academic. Part theatre, part concert and part history, Titanic Tales was a special commission by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, had its world premiere to a capacity house in April 2012, and will be touring the United States in 2014.

Stephanie began her cello studies in the Levittown, NY public school system and went on to graduate from the Juilliard School Pre-college Division. She holds a BFA in classical cello performance from Purchase College and a MA in music education from Columbia University.

Close Your Eyes Beautiful!

Allen Schoer

This album is saturated with rich textures. The atmosphere is highly evocative and enveloping. "Saudade" indeed. The playing is simply gorgeous. Such craft and artistry. It keeps inviting me back to revisit. Beautifully done.

Maria Schneider

This woman has such a gorgeous sound and she's a very expressive player. I find 'Lonely Woman' and 'Cancao Verdes Anos' to be especially compelling. The CD is atmospheric, full of beauty and is also very well recorded. Hard not to love this music.
