Michael Bublé, James Taylor, Meghan Trainor, Betty Buckley, Stephanie J Block, and Donna Murphy have. They've all praised and reposted her videos. Stella exists out of time. She could have been plucked straight out of and old MGM movie. The joy she feels from the Great American Songbook is palpable and irresistible, and the honesty of her performance profoundly moving.
On her highly anticipated debut studio album, produced by Matt Pierson, Stella performs a collection of her favorite standards with an all star band featuring Alan Broadbent, Ben Paterson, and Chico Pinheiro. For Stella, singing is putting herself inside the lyrics of a song and letting the story carry her away. She sings these songs like they were written about her own life, an approach that requires a deep vulnerability. Watching her, people often wipe away tears. Along with her rich tone and impressive vocal control, a unique approach to interpretation sets her versions of these classics apart from any you’ve ever heard.
