Stephanie Schneiderman and Keith Schreiner Wrap Up Outdoor Summer Concert Series

Event Date: 
August 29, 2009 - 18:30

Stephanie Schneiderman’s sultry, moody folk is intertwined with pop, jazz and soul. Between founding Voices for Silent Disasters, Portland’s first humanitarian concert series, which raised money for Mercy Corps in Uganda, her popularity in Dirty Martini, and her work with producer Keith Schreiner, Stephanie is a Portland legend.

This year, SakeOne will donate 20% of ticket sales for its Outdoor Summer Concert Series to Mercy Corps. So you can benefit Mercy Corps as you enjoy sake, have fun with friends, and hear some of the Northwest's favorite bands on beautiful Northwest summer nights.

The successes of Stephanie Schneiderman have been heard round the world. In 2007 Stephanie founded and produced Voices for Silent Disasters. Portland’s first humanitarian concert series, Voices for Silent Disasters featured 37 artists through 10 concerts at 3 venues across the River City. Stephanie’s efforts raised $60,000 for Mercy Corps in Uganda, and she was even invited to visit and meet with communities in the war-torn region of Pader, where Mercy Corps' Ugandan headquarters are located.

Stephanie said of her visit to Uganda, “I was amazed with how resilient they were in the aftermath of such a devastating war. They were capable, resourceful, professional, and I learned so much from being there. Our mainstream media is limited in terms of what they share about the communities in Uganda or other countries in Africa. We only get part of the picture. I saw strong women, strong leaders, and strong communities.”

“Dangerous Fruit” is Stephanie's sixth solo disc and it combines Stephanie's intricate songwriting with Keith Schreiner's electronica and trip-hop beats. Schreiner has worked with artists such as Dahlia, Auditory Sculpture, Sheryl Crow, and Minnie Driver. The result is a recording that transcends genre and defies convention. Artfully combining pop, soul, electronica, and folk, the album is a testament to the magic that can happen when a unique collaboration hits its stride.

While Stephanie's latest effort retains the rootsy flair, distinctive vocals, and intricate songwriting that have solidified her as one of the Northwest’s premier artists, the album also launches her sound in an uncharted direction. The album moves Stephanie out of the traditional singer/songwriter camp, as the duo's combined sound is comparable to Portishead or Beth Orton.

The SakeOne Outdoor Summer Concert Series will take place every other Saturday, rain or shine, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. from June 27 through August 29 at 820 Elm Street, Forest Grove, Oregon.

Ticket prices vary, but the Stephanie Schneiderman and Keith Schreiner show on Saturday, August 29 costs $8 for general admission, and $5 for students, club members, and shareholders. Tickets can be bought on SakeOne's website or at the door.
