Renée Stefanie

Renée Stefanie is a vocalist, specialising in Jazz through much of the broad spectrum that the genre label implies. Born in the Netherlands, raised in New Zealand, based in Scotland and with a debut album recorded in the South of France she is a musical amalgamation of European and American influences who has been initially overwhelmed by, and ultimately benefitted from, exposure to a variety of strong musical ideas, opinions and expressions.

She lectures in popular music at Edinburgh Napier University where she strives to collaborate with students in exploring a breadth of musical concepts and ideas; encouraging them to translate and interpret those ideas as tools to be utilised in the realisation of their own musical styles. Her primary areas of academic interest relate to methodologies and approaches to enhance creative practices, kinesthetic pedagogical approaches in relation to abstract concepts, and the adaptation of vocal performance to suit variations of musical context and creative intention.
