Primary Instrument: Vocalist
Stephanie Bruce has been part of the San Francisco Bay area music scene for more than 25 years. Her musical explorations have taken her through a variety of styles, numerous associations with some of the Bay Area's finest musicians, performance in many of the finest venues, and travel to Europe and the Far East. The synthesis of these experiences has resulted in a musical voice that is uniquely seasoned and individually expressive. She is a singer, pianist, composer, arranger, and teacher who continues to evolve in her ongoing musical adventures.
Stephanie has recorded two CDs, both rich in mood, atmosphere, and imagery, expressed in the various textures of her distinctive voice.
The Postcard, Stephanie's first CD, was released in 1996. It features her original compositions, and a few imaginatively crafted arrangements of standards. She is joined by Jeff Chimenti, Bill Douglass, and Glen Cronkhite.
April in Dogtown, released in 2002, is also a presentation of original tunes punctuated by a few choice standards. Jeff Chimenti, Jonathan Alford, Bill Douglass, Jason Lewis, Jeff Massanari, Michael Wilcox, Alex Baum, and Sheldon Brown also appear on this recording.
Teaching has been central to Stephanie's musical life for over twenty years. She continues to teach classes, lessons, and workshops, emphasizing musicianship, technique, and performance. She taught at the Blue Bear School of American Music in San Francisco for five years, and at The Jazzschool in Berkeley for nine years
