Program: Musical Presentation by Stephanie Seymour
Wed, November 20, 2019
Stephanie Seymour’s melodic, harmony-laden album “There Are Birds” answers the musical question “What happens when you combine Aimee Mann, Chrissie Hynde, and Karen Carpenter, add a dash of Matthew Sweet, and mix thoroughly with bird-related tales and imagery?” It’s an album about birds, nature, the passage of time and Stephanie’s relationship with these things and more. It’s her story told from a bird’s perspective and birds’ stories revealed through her worldview.
Stephanie became an avid bird watcher when she and Bob married and moved from NYC to NJ. Birds became her passion, eclipsing but never erasing her desire to sing. When a musical lightning bolt struck in early 2018, she decided to combine her love of birds with her love of music and “There Are Birds” was born. The songs were completed in a matter of months. It was as if they had to be written; they simply flowed out of her head onto paper. Stephanie’s love of birds and the natural world is what supports her through her most challenging times. Birding always restores peace and calm to her soul.
CDs will be available for purchase at the meeting.
