Stephanie McKay is from the Bronx. She’s a singer. She’s a songwriter. She’s a master performer. And she’s one of the most in-demand voices on the scene today. Her list of credits includes two albums with Brooklyn Funk Essentials, guitarist for Kelis, collaborations with Talib Kweli and Mos Def, a feature on the standout hit “Forget Regret” from Roy Hargrove’s Grammy-nominated RH Factor (which assembled a who’s who of hip hop and soul, including D’Angelo, Anthony Hamilton, Erykah Badu, Karl Denson, Pino Palladino, and Common), a tour around the world with Amp Fiddler from the legendary Parliament Funkadelic, and McKay -- her own solo album produced by Portishead’s Geoff Barrow
McKay was released overseas by Polydor/Universal and garnered major critical acclaim. London’s Independent called the album “…the best debut since Macy Gray,” and Black Beat referred to McKay as “…the savior we need to drag rhythm back to its roots.” Two singles and two videos were released from the album and were in heavy rotation across radio and MTV in Europe. Stephanie McKay is the real deal. And she’s just getting started
McKay has been performing locally in the New York area, and she’s completed two national tours in Australia and an unprecedented seven-night stand in Greece. She’s always working and moving forward. Keep your eyes out for shows in your area. She’s not to be missed live.
