Stephanie Nilles on Lyrical Venus Radio! Tues 4/4

Singer-Songwriter Stephanie Nilles

Singer-Songwriter Stephanie Nilles

Bored with playing other people’s songs, classically trained pianist Stephanie Nilles turned to writing her own. Tiring of New York City, she hit the road in 2008 and found her way into the indie/folk/coffee house circuit, booking herself about 20 shows a month and playing for tips on nights she didn’t have an official show. She also does house concerts, and I’ll be hosting her for one of those on Saturday, April 8th!

Stephanie’s music has earned her descriptions like “Ella Fitzgerald on speed beating the shit out of Regina Spektor” and “Tom Waits on helium”. Her subject matter “address issues ranging from drug busts in her neighborhood to the challenges and joys of life on the road.”

Stephanie is a modern day troubadour, touring non-stop, and these are songs that make you pay sit up and take notice, though you may be fooled at first listen if you aren’t paying attention. The brassy, jazzy voice and syncopated piano might remind you of some torchy song you heard before, but it only takes a moment to realize this is something new. Try this song of hers called Eggs Over Easy and see if you can hear what I mean:

Pretty cool huh?
