A new trademark sound is set to change the Dance music world with the release of "STEPHANIE BRAGANZA'S" debut of riveting originals. Showcasing commercial Pop, Euro-Dance and Electro-House, Stephanie Braganza's luscious vocals combine with producer Colin Stewart's haunting sounds, resulting in an atmospheric soundscape they call 'Dark Pop'. The music is genre-breaking with experimental yet accessible elements that have never been blended with dance music before. Offering up a sonic tapestry that is unique alongside its uncanny ability to hit the common nerve, Stephanie Braganza re-invents Sexy with hints of Rock and Avant-Garde. The songs are at once metaphorical and lyrical, as well as familiar and catchy -- think Lada Gaga meets Bjork meets Tom Waits. The serious, darker tones add an edge to the music's unbridled call for fun and dance-- ideal for clubs, lounges and fine restaurants alike!
Stephanie Braganza is a powerhouse vocalist, most ably backed by musician/producer nonpareil Colin Stewart. Though only in their early 20s, their musical prowess belies their vernal years. Stephanie studied with such greats as Juno award winner Rik Emmett, Pat LaBarbera, and Trish Colter, and sang with funk/R&B bands The Funktion, and Blue Jackets Required. Invited to sing with rap artist Belly and Ginuwine at the Muchmusic Video Awards, and at clubs throughout Ontario, Stephanie Braganza is a sparkling singer whose star is on the rise.
