Stephanie Scelza was born to a pack of wolves and left howling on the doorstep of a human family in 1983. Her family realized she was different when she started singing before she could speak, and whisked her off to vocal lessons at the age of ten. She narrowly escaped a life of professional opera-singing when she found a guitar, quit her studies, and eloped with a band.
Never able to take herself seriously as a human being, Stephanie found solace in the blues, when she discovered she was able to howl away with impunity.
Suspicious of human classifications, Stephanie is hard-pressed to describe her music as a blend of funk, blues, and folk. She has tricked a wide array of respectable human musicians into playing music with her, none of whom she can remember by name, because that kind of thing isn't important to wolves.
You can find her padding around the Portland music scene with no particular directive beyond survival, and the desire to find a quiet place for a good, long howl.
