Staci Griesbach

Staci Griesbach (pronounced “STAY-cee GREECE bahk” / “Greece” “Bach”) is a Los Angeles-based vocalist brings together her passion for jazz and country music as she interprets songs from country music's “Great American Songbook” in the style of jazz. Griesbach is currently celebrating country music icon Shania Twain and her 25th anniversary of the breakout album The Woman In Me with Griesbach's own interpretation of a selection of songs from that album. Griesbach's sophomore release is entitled “My Shania Twain Songbook” and will be on music platforms worldwide on December 18, 2020. Created during the 2020 global pandemic, the celebration of Twain's catalog was an opportunity to revisit music that inspired Griesbach in her formative years, a “coming of age.” With covers of some of Twain's fan-favorite tunes like “Any Man of Mine” and “No One Needs To Know,” Griesbach hopes to continue to find a bridge between her two most beloved genres of music.

Griesbach's debut album is the first full-length recorded jazz interpretation of Cline’s catalog called My Patsy Cline Songbook. Throughout the album, Staci takes fans on a journey through songs Patsy Cline made famous by some of Nashville's most renown songwriters including Hank Cochran, Harlan Howard, Bill Monroe, Willie Nelson and more. These prolific American songwriters contributed greatly to the Nashville Sound - arguably in the same way Irving Berlin and Cole Porter contributed to the foundation of jazz vocal repertoire that exists today. Similarly, it could be argued that Patsy Cline has helped shape and influence many female country singers today, much like Ella Fitzgerald or Billie Holiday has throughout the jazz landscape.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
