About Stephanie Schneiderman

Stephanie Schneiderman

Trying to pin down Stephanie Schneiderman to any one genre, talent or discipline is next to impossible. One thing is clear however- whether pursuing her prolific work as a solo artist, playing drums for all star roots pop act Swan Sovereign (formerly Dirty Martini), stepping on the stage in the musical The Full Monty, producing a wildly successful humanitarian concert series for refugees in Uganda (raising over $70k) as well as producing three children's CD's (featured as soundtracks for popular children's videos OyBaby and That Baby DVD -selling more than 80,000 combined units) Stephanie Schneiderman is hands down one of the most diversely talented artists the Northwest has to offer.

Since her solo career began with a coveted spot in the Lilith Fair, Stephanie has earned extensive NW radio play, a devout following and multiple appearances with some of the nations top touring acts- including Aimee Mann, Hall & Oates, Heart, Train, Pat Benatar, Chicago, Madeleine Peyroux, Andy Summers, Marc Cohn and many more.

With eight solo recordings under her belt - Stephanie Schneiderman (1999), Unbelievably Unbroken (2001), Fall Sessions EP (2001), Touch Down (2004), Live at Kung Fu Bakery (2005), Dangerous Fruit (2008), Rubber Teardrop (2011) and Live At The Old Church (2013), plus four releases with her collaborative bands Dirty Martini- Dirty Martini (2004), Tea and Revenge (2007) and Swan Sovereign - Arctic (2014) and Valentine (2017), Schneiderman has seen her music placed in numerous films and Primetime TV shows, as well as toured around the world.

Her latest album, Live at the Old Church (a departure from her ambient/trip-hop release, Rubber Teardrop, on Dan Reed's UK-based label with electronic producer Keith Schreiner) strips away the layers and features Stephanie on piano and guitar with 45th Parallel String Quartet and Roxy Consort Choir backing her, and gives fans the core essence of her songwriting, delivering a spellbinding live performance that old and new fans will revere.

PREVIOUS PRESS FOR SCHNEIDERMAN:

 "Dangerous Fruit reveals a confident singer boasting a collection of torchy techno pop in the vein of Zero 7 or Morcheeba... the result is a polished album that feels fully realized and amplifies the drama and sophistication..." - Washington Post

 "Multi-faceted singer/songwriter Stephanie Schneiderman...artfully combines pop, trip-hop, soul, electronica and folk."  - Brooklyn Rocks

"In Schreiner's hands, the tunes' subtle shadings and bits of texture take on a distinctly different character, one that is part Zero 7, part Beth Orton, but wholly Schneiderman's own."  - The Oregonian

 "With electronic producer Keith Schreiner,[Schneiderman] transformed from mere singer/songwriter to heartfelt electronica pop queen... moving through ambient background textures to upbeat dance tempos... Together they've found a formula that renews the relevance of a talented songwriter and expanding into the larger pop music realm." -Portland Mercury

"Her sound is distinct... her songwriting craft is very focused; it is clear that she has a vision... The songs blend soft acoustic, swaying vocals and electronic beats. Romantic, sensual lyrics top off the over all intimate mood. These tracks reveal her as an artist who is not afraid to experiment..." - Beat Crave

 "A record brimming with bass and pulsating drums... the tracks on Rubber Teardrop move her to a new level... She is quirky - She knows how to write a song... and boy can she sing... I'll shed more than rubber teardrops if the music-buying public doesn't wake up to the fact that she is a talent they need to hear." -Jewish Telegraph UK
