Sami Stevens combines Jazz, Singer Songwriter, and classic R&B sensibilities to forge a captivating, unique voice in original music. Supported by warm, clear tones on her keyboard, and joined by tenor saxophonist Kazemde George, the duo gives a dynamic, playful performance of minimal arrangements which cut to the core of Sami’s intimate songwriting.
Deeply musically intertwined, Sami and Kaz have been making music together since they met at the New England Conservatory in 2012. Their full band, Sami Stevens and the Man I Love, released their first album, And I'm Right, through Leesta Vall Records in 2017. The same year, Sami and Kaz released an EP entitled Make Your Mind, produced under Kaz’s beatmaker moniker KG,B.
Between the two of them, Sami and Kaz have received praise from Rolling Stone, the New Yorker, and Pitchfork, toured North America, Europe and Australia, and held residencies in New York and San Francisco.
“Sami Stevens and her cohorts manage an entirely convincing demonstration of the very thing that makes all our hearts beat a little faster. She is an intelligent performer not afraid to push herself out of the safety zone and I am sure that more will be heard from her.” -Bluesbunny.
