Stephanie Porter is a premier jazz vocalist who lives to sing. Her recordings have charted on the top 10 nationally and internationally. Musically inspired at an early age. Stephanie found herself mesmerized by music and the many layers of interpretations of songs by both instrumentalists, as-well-as vocalists. Moved particularly by jazz and it’s progression of energy combined with cool. A stylist that has been influenced by music …music and its many styles. “It’s difficult to define a specific artist as my major influence… Music is like a painting or a garden. How do you choose a color or flower? I am inspired by individuality and love to hear different interpretations from creative artists. I strive to be true to the songs I sing, honest with the audiences listening and enveloped in creativity with my band.”
