Stephanie Patton was born in Sitka, Alaska in 1984 and grew up in Ketchikan, Alaska. The music studio was like a second home to her as she frequently went with her Father to his long standing “Sunday Jazz” show at the local public radio station which still airs today. Her voice is a reflection of the raw rugged landscapes and pure pristine air of Southern Southeast Alaska.
Stephanie’s vocal talent was first revealed by Ketchikan’s “First City Players’ Jazz Cabaret” workshops/performances which involve musicians from New York City coming to the small island of Ketchikan to teach vocal/instrumental jazz workshops to community members.
Stephanie is quickly becoming known as Southeast Alaska’s First Lady of Jazz with her natural delivery of pure rich tones under a tidal current of swing. She’s been compared to singers like Sarah Vaughan, Diana Krall and Norah Jones.
