is a singer who grew up in the Bronx (New York) where she felt a burning love for soul music. She has been a music professional for over twenty years in a style that blends classic rock, funk, pop and hip-hop. She has worked together with, among others, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Carl Hancock Rux and Amp Fiddler and toured the world with the Brooklyn Funk Essentials. She has also released solo albums, the most recent of which is Tell It like It Is
(2008) which shows all her gifts as a songwriter. On the album, she announces to the public what her musical heart yearns for: a glorious, vivacious vibe which she lets float on the musical styles of her preference. Besides classical soul we also recognize funk rock from the 70s and old-school hip-hop. The song Jackson Avenue
is a fine example of Stephanie McKay's recollections of the beginnings of hip-hop in the Bronx. It is obvious she has found her own voice.
