Stephanie Mechura is a San
Francisco-based singer/ songwriter whose accomplished guitar playing and captivating voice
place her among today's top contemporary folk artists. Stylistically, she evokes the folk
funk of Rickie Lee Jones, while being lyrically reminiscent of Suzanne Vega and Joni
Mitchell. Each of her songs tell the story of the background from which it cames. When
asked to describe her, admirers smile, then smile a little wider, and simply say
"you've gotta hear her to really know."
Stephanie has released two CD's on her independent lable Fat Baby Records. Her debut
album, ...Ellipsis, has been receiving critical acclaim nationwide. Her second
album, Crush, was released in March of 1996 and has already started to gain the
attention of press and radio. Stephanie actively tours California and the Pacific
Northwest, as well as the greater Boston and New York City areas.
