Rainshadow Concerts presents Stephanie Schneiderman with Jenny Conlee (the Decemberists) opening on Saturday, July 15 at 7:30pm.
Trying to pin down Stephanie Schneiderman to any one genre, talent or discipline is next to impossible. One thing is clear – whether pursuing her prolific work as a solo artist, playing drums for all star roots pop act Swan Sovereign (Dirty Martini), producing, acting, or giving back, Schneiderman is hands down one of the most diverse and hardest working female singer-songwriters the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
Blending elements of folk, indie pop music, Americana and electronic music, her 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 play, tour internationally, and earn music placements in numerous films and primetime TV shows, including Felicity, the Vampire Diaries Soundtrack and many more. She has 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 has stepped on stage in the musical The Full Monty, appeared in major television commercials and films, and even produced the soundtrack for 3 popular children’s DVDs (Oy Baby and That Baby) selling more than 75,000 combined units.
Above all her accolades as an artist, Schneiderman has a keen passion for activism. She organized Portland’s first humanitarian concert series, Voices for Silent Disasters, which raised $70,000 for Mercy Corps in northern Uganda, and is currently penning a musical that raises awareness about human trafficking.
Showcasing her talent as one of the best singer-songwriters in the PNW, Schneiderman has 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).
In the fall of 2021, Schneiderman released her ninth solo album, Crossfire. The new recording combines her past sonic explorations, including folk music, ambient pop, trip hop, and Americana music, into a beautifully dark and deeply introspective recording that is as fresh as it is compelling. Funded by pre-purchases and house concerts, Crossfire is a self-released labor of love that celebrates her community and newfound artistic freedom as producer, and will be enjoyed by anyone looking to sit down with a timeless and great record.
