This month’s guest on Living A Vocal Life is singer-songwriter, Stephanie Schneiderman.
Blending elements of folk, indie pop music, Americana, and electronic music, Stephanie’s songwriting is often compared to artists like Imogen Heap, Regina Spektor, and Jem. As a singer-songwriter, her solo career began with a coveted spot in the Lilith Fair. From there, she went on to receive extensive NW radio airplay, tour internationally, and earn music placements in numerous films and primetime TV shows. She’s played with some of the nation’s top touring acts- from Aimee Mann to Hall & Oates, Heart, and Train- and enjoyed ongoing success with popular NW all-female groups Dirty Martini and Swan Sovereign. She’s performed in the musical The Full Monty, appeared in major television commercials and films and produced a successful humanitarian concert series, Voices For Silent Disasters, that raised more than $70,000 for refugees in Northern Uganda.
Stephanie’s released nine solo albums. Her most recent, Crossfire, has her stepping into the role of producer for the first time.
I’ve known Stephanie so long I can’t even remember when or where we met! But what is embedded in my memories of Stephanie are our conversations — they’re always wide-ranging, inspiring, and fun. In this one, we talk about her career trajectory, her new album, what it’s like to stand up for yourself in difficult situations, and the joys and challenges of combining a creative career with parenting. We also dive into some deeper waters — and talk about why coming to terms with failure in one’s creativity and career is essential to living one’s life as an artist.
