06/24 Thursday: Stephanie Nilles
Born in Chicago to a
chemical engineer and an architect, Stephanie Nilles is an active musician of
varying genres by sheer accident. At 17, she was a finalist at the Young
Concert Artists' International Competition. At 22, she had graduated from the
Cleveland Institute of Music with a BM in classical piano performance. These
days, she's performing her own jazz/folk tunes, described by listeners as
"Ella Fitzgerald on speed beating the hell out of Regina Spektor" and
"Tom Waits on helium," out on the road in a hatchback with a Roland.
She has performed at Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, The Bitter End, The Cutting
Room, WFMT's "Live from Studio One," NPR's "From the Top,"
and at the International Folk Alliance and SXSW Music Festival, and she has
collaborated with artists such as Bobby McFerrin, Joel Newton, and Christian
Howes, in styles ranging from free improv to burlesque accompaniment.
Stephanie's songs, sometimes her own and sometimes jazz standards modified in
vocalese style, address issues ranging from drug busts in her neighborhood to
the challenges and joys of life on the road. Stephanie has released two
full-length albums, "reDemo" (2008) and "The Off-White Album and
Waltzes in the Key of Gypsy McGee" (2009) and is an Attention Spaniel
