Sami Stevens

NYC Vocalist Sami Stevens combines Jazz, Experimental and classic RnB sensibilities to forge a truly unique voice in original music. A graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music, Sami has performed with world renowned jazz pianist Jason Moran and 6-time Grammy nominee Fred Hersch, recorded with eclectic Foetus composer J.G. Thirwell, "King of Treme" Shannon Powell, and underground legend Gary Wilson, opened for Grammy nominated folk singer Greg Brown and Black Star MC Talib Kweli, and collaborated with Simon Hanes of Gorilla Toss/Cloud Becomes Your Hand/Tredici Bacci and world champ drummer Thomas Pridgen. Her projects have been lauded by publications like Rolling Stone, Pitchfork and the New York Times.

Sami has toured the US, Europe, and Australia with various projects, appearing at NYC venues like the Cutting Room, Brooklyn Bowl, and National Sawdust, and at music festivals like Sydney Fest, SXSW and Meltasia. Stevens has led the Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra, performed numerous times in Boston's Jordan Hall, and sung the national anthem in Fenway Park at age 16. Additionally, Sami acts as lead vocalist for in faux Italian 70’s soundtrack band Tredici Bacci (NNA Records), and prog soundtrack group Morricone Youth (Country Club Records).

Sami Stevens and the Man I Love

With the Autumn 2017 release of their first album, And I'm Right, Sami Stevens and the Man I Love are carving out their rightful place in the NYC RnB scene. And I'm Right, released on vinyl through Leesta Vall Records, and produced by Somerbridge Music, gives an imaginative, fresh take on old, warm sounds and grooves, drawing comparison to groups like Emily King, Amy Winehouse and Hiatus Kaiyote. The record weaves through influences of Jazz, Classic RnB and Soul, Blues and modern RnB, unified by Stevens' compelling voice as a songwriter. And I'm Right is a window into Stevens' world, telling stories of vulnerability, love, optimism, growing pains, and fiercely powerful perseverance.

“And I’m Right” has the mark of maturity and that’s a rare thing to find these days...the lyrics often impress as well with “She Is God” and “Child They Said Was Mine” mixing together Phoebe Snow style lyrical intelligence with a concise emotional impact." -Bluesbunny

Newly established in Brooklyn, Sami Stevens and the Man I Love has already secured residencies at Pine Box Rock Shop and, currently, Parkside. Stevens, the band's leader, has toured internationally with various acts, having played with artists like Jason Moran, Fred Hersch, J.G. Thirwell of Foetus, and "King of Treme" Shannon Powell. Formed in 2015, the Man I Love includes Eitan Akman on guitar, Bob Edinger on drums, Jed Lingat on bass, Noah MacNeil on keys, Kazemde George on tenor sax.
