AMY STEPHENS

Pianist & Composer

Stephens plays it all as if with a smile on her face and in her fingers. Stunning finger work, effortlessly negotiated.

Indy Star

A formidable originator of new music. This is the future of instrumental jazz

Michael Nastos, All Music Guide

Contemporary jazz that is passionate, innovative, engaging and witty….The biggest star on the disc is Stephens, whom I've never met but whose playing is so warm and intimate I feel like I'm best friends with her already.

Steve Hammer, Nuvo

This one is a gem.
