STEPHANIE CRAWFORD is an internationally acclaimed singer, and that rare bird: a black trans vocal musician in the exceedingly straight jazz world. Having studied with the renowned bop pianist Barry Harris in New York, she migrated to Paris where she remained for several years, performing and teaching at prestigious schools of music, various festivals, and venues such as The Duc des Lombards, The Sunset, New Morning, and a host of other establishments. She is also the winner of the prestigious Django D’Or Award for Best International Jazz Vocalist.

In New York, Crawford has performed in such famed venues as Wigstock, The Pyramid, Sweet Basil, The Blue Note, Jazzmania, and Barry Harris Jazz Cultural Theatre, among others. The septuagenarian is a sublime interpreter of the American and Brazilian songbook, performed in the classic jazz vocal tradition of Sarah Vaughan, Carmen McRae, and Betty Carter.
