PRESENTED BY CROW
BROUGHT TO YOU IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE RHYTHM BUILDING at MUSIC ROW in NASHVILLE TENNESSEE and THERECORDSHOPNASHVILLE.COM

Stefanie Keys is "Powerful Soulful Magnetic JuJu"- Rhiannon 08 " San Francisco-based Americana-rocker may have nabbed a record deal with her gutsy, carefree version of Janis Joplin's ' Try ( Just a Little Bit Harder), ' But her own songs on the debut CD Say You Will- including the organ-driven I-found-my-man affirmation of 'Whiskey Bottles' , the slick blues rock of 'Freight Train' , and the jazzy rocker 'Hover'- are what should give Keys an edge in the crowded adult-alternative market. The singer-songwriter-guitarist's bold delivery and musical muscle recall Melissa Etheridge, and she tapped members of RatDog and Spearhead to assist her in the studio. Despite the rock, jazz and blues on the all-too-short nine-song disc, Keys' finest moments come on Say You Will's most introspective, laid back cuts: the title track and the chilling slow-burn opener 'Girl I Don't Know' which deserves to be mentioned among the best songs of 2008." ~ Michael Popke Milwaukee Express, 2009 From the hills of Marin County California, I come from a family of musicians, one of my biggest influences is my brother Peter "Keys" Pisarczyk (Lynard Skynard).And my two aunts. Peter rejected my constant attempts to sing in his band projects during our early teens. This turned out to be the impetus for me to pick up a guitar and learn to do it on my own. This partnership forged with my brother has proven to bring growth to me as an artist and to him as a producer. We work together in the music world, creating and appreciating the gift that it is to be working as artists. I will be appearing singing lead with Big Brother & The Holding Company in local Northern California and Pacific Northwest Venues starting this summer., 2010. The new release is on its way! It will be released in Spring of 2011 One of my favorite things to do is to see great band, just get on stage and to improv, seize a moment to create magic, and relish those opportunities as an expression of this incredible celebration of music and life! I have grown as a songwriter and a singer playing with artists such as Jay Lane (Primus, 'Ratdog', Alphabet Soup, Charlie Hunter Trio,) and Dave Shul (Spearhead, los Angelitos, Ice Age ) Clarence Clemons (Bruce Springstein) Tommy Castro. I currently am developing songs for the new CD, along with working on the Janis Joplin songs I am singing with her original band Big Brother & The Holding Co.
