About Scheherazade S.

Singer-songwriter Scheherazade Stone was born in the music mecca of Detroit, Michigan and raised in the creative, politically progressive culture of San Francisco, California where her roots are still firmly planted today. Cultivated by her mother who is a classically trained musician, Scheherazade has always had a deep and powerful connection to music.

She began her formal vocal training at the age of 11, continuing studies at The School Of The Arts, which led to a Bachelor's degree in Vocal Performance at SFSU, eventually completing her music education with master vocal coach Judy Davis.

Scheherazade has embraced a multitude of musical genres which include Jazz, Soul, Rock, Hip Hop, Folk, Blues, Pop and World, leading numerous bands throughout the years both locally as well as abroad. Her soulful vocal stylings have been showcased internationally with concerts and tours in Europe, Africa, Japan and Russia, performing at the prestigious Monterey Jazz Festival, the North Sea Jazz Festival, the Tunisia World Music Festival, and the SF Jazz Center.

Earning a Grammy nomination for Best Jazz Single, “The World Is Gifted” for her featured vocal performance with the Hieroglyphics Ensemble, along with being nominated for Best Bay Area Jazz Vocalist, Best Bay Area Jazz Group (Hueman Flavor), and Best Bay Area Jazz Album (The Up&Down Jazz Sessions) by the esteemed Bammy Awards Association, are just a few high points of recognition received for her work.

Scheherazade has performed with and/or opened for such notable artists as Don Cherry, Doug Carn, David Murray, The Grateful Dead, Brian McKnight, Sam Shepard, Beck, members of Digital Underground, Taj Mahal, Nova Ghost, Calvin Keys, Eddie Gale, Kai Eckhardt, Santero, Brian Gore, Jai Uttal not to mention leading her own stellar band in it's own right – Troy Lampkin (bass/Narada Michael Walden), Deszon Claiborne (drums/Chuck Brown), Dave MacNab (guitar/Shelby Lynn) and Dan Eisenberg (piano/Train.

Through the art of meticulously crafted songs expressed in powerful songwriting and lush band and vocal performances, she looks forward to sharing new music with her audience in a way that she hopes moves and inspires them like never before, touching listeners with a deep and raw soulfulness.
