Seattle native Stephanie Porter, an outstanding jazz vocalist with a clear, sultry tone and a bright and appealing stage presence, has had a passion for music her whole life. From 1996 to 2000, Porter opened for a multitude of national acts and as a member of the popular disco group, Hit Explosion. During this time, she also recorded "My Heart Belongs to Daddy," which ascended to the top 100 of the Gavin Jazz Chart. National Public Radio station, KPLU (88.5 FM), still features a number of songs from her critically acclaimed album, Mood Swings, nationwide. Moved particularly by jazz and its progression of energy combined with cool, Porter maintains, "I strive to be true to the songs I sing, honest with the audiences listening and enveloped in creativity with my band."  Nick Morrison of KPLU 88.5 FM describes her as "a favorite not only among jazz listeners but among jazz artists as well."  Joining her for Jazz LIVE at Marine View will be pianist Darin Clendenin, bassist Dan O'Brien, saxophonist Mike West and drummer Steve Yusen.
