"Stephanie has the kind of voice that can make the waters part; loud, sweet, and soulful ... she could have saved Moses a lot of trouble."
- Ellis Paul, Singer/Songwriter
Stephanie Corby's remarkable vocal range - from a husky, sultry alto to a true soprano that lifts the musical lines in a near-astonishing way - is the marked feature of "More to Show You." A pleasure to listen to, it's going to make its mark on Americana playlists in the near future.
- John McLaughlin, Host/Producer, WMUC-FM
"Heres what Stephanie Corby brings to the party: heart stopping vocals, appreciation for smart language, a buoyant sense of melody and more than a little bit o soul!"
- Marilyn Rea Beyer, Music Director, WUMB-FM
Boston-based Stephanie Corby possesses a rich, powerful voice that transcends the borders of musical style. This soulful songstress has successfully fused her classical, jazz and blues backgrounds into a distinct R&B-flavored acoustic sound. Singer/Songwriter Ellis Paul says the following about Stephanie's voice: "she has the kind of voice that makes the waters part; loud sweet and soulful ... she could have saved Moses a lot of trouble."
Born in Ashburnham, MA, Corby began singing and playing music at the age of eight. The oldest of four sisters, she received her vocal lessons from her mother and her first guitar lessons from her father. Throughout high school and college Stephanie concentrated her studies on classical and jazz vocal technique. Performing in prestigious collegiate classical vocal ensembles as a soloist she acquired her first taste for the stage. All the while, Corby jumped at any opportunity to "rip out an Aretha tune" or throw herself into a gut-wrenching blues classic. Upon graduating from the University of Massachusetts, it was apparent that Stephanie's musical interests would lead her into R&B. She took the stage as a lead blues woman fronting the nine-piece band "Biggs Band" and built a deep repertoire of blues and R&B classics. During this time she received private vocal coaching from a professor at the Berklee School of Music. In the mid-90s Corby left the band and entered Boston's singer/songwriter circuit as a solo artist and has been touring the US and Canada for the past 20 years.
