Vocalist, Scheherazade Stone, is a San Francisco veteran within the Bay Area music scene, having recorded, performed & collaborated with various artists, musicians & actors in different genres of music, theater, dance & multi media presentation. Scheherazade began vocal studies early on, graduating from the Performing Arts High School, eventually getting her graduate degree in Vocal Performance at SFSU. Throughout this time, w/ a clear vision in sight, she was performing regularly w/ various bands, including her own groups called Hueman Flavor & then later Spiritual Machine. She continued to hone her vocal chops locally, working weekly at numerous SF venues such as Brunos, The Up&Down Club, Yoshis, Slims, The Independent, Bimbos & the Great American Music Hall, performing & recording within a variety of musical styles such as Jazz, R&B, Folk, Rock, Pop & House, as well as collaborating with other artists such as Don Cherry, David Murray, Massivan, Kai Eckhardt, Taj Mahal, Doug Carn, Donald Byrd, Beck, Brian McKnight, The Grateful Dead & Bob Weir.
Performing abroad became the next phase of musical evolution, traveling to Holland to perform at the North Sea Jazz Festival & the Bimhuis, to Africa within the walls of beautiful Roman ruins at the Tunisia World Music Festival, to a couple of lengthy tours in Japan. All of these journeys were experiences that had a major impact in shaping her as an artist. These past few years Scheherazade has spent a significant amount of time in Spain & Italy, & continues to be influenced by the fusion of musical styles from this side of the globe.
With numerous shows planned in support here in the U.S. as well as abroad, including this year's SF Jazz Festival performance, a Russia tour, and the release of her latest CD, "Chasing The Sun", along with it's video premiere, all will continue to establish Scheherazade as a potent force on the music scene.
