Stephanie Rearick's SavantMail
Fri, Jun 5, 2020

Yes, it’s a weird time to celebrate, yet there’s also much to celebrate in the solidarity being embodied around the world for defending black lives. And we think it’s really important to have fun, enjoy and make art, and be together. Well, kinda together - mostly on zoom (wah wah)

NOTE: if you received an earlier version of this email it’s likely it had the wrong zoom link. This one should be correct... [read more]


A Variety of Shows and Parties coming soon...

But before that, it would be remiss not to acknowledge this is coming in the

peace and health upon this world, for everyone

and now for something completely different….

Music in the time of COVID

Hello all

I hope you're faring well.

I just thought to write an update on my musical life, because I'm thinking about it.

You may or may not know that I got discouraged about playing solo for a couple years, and effectively quit doing that. Since I didn't play a ton to begin with, and part of my discouragement was in the fact that people often didn't seem to notice when I WAS playing, my little sadsacky hiatus kinda stayed under the radar.

Well, I'm glad to report I finally got over myself and decided to start... [read more]


Shows! Negative Example TONIGHT, Ladyscissors and Stephanie solo soon

Hello all,

It would be lovely to see you at a show soon, and you have many varied ones to choose from.

Negative Example at Mickey’s!
I play keys in Bucky Pope’s band Negative Example. The music is cool and original, kinda jazzy, kinda punky, kinda balls out rock n roll, or something :)

Hi friends,

I am happy to see the lovely review of my new record in this past week's ISTHMUS. I'll share it with you here, if you haven't seen it yet. It reminds me of the hard work that my bandmates put in, and of course of the excellent circa-1978 open-reel engineering Bruce Kasprzyk did to make this recording sound so rich:

try a little democracy

hi there

I had occasion to re-listen to my 2007 album Democracy the other day - for the first time in several years - and I must say I was gratified to hear how much I like how it sounds. And devastated to hear how relevant its very dark political subject matter is right now.

So I decided to give it away as a belated July 4 present. Feel free to download it here - https://s3.amazonaws.com/uvustore/Stephanie-Rearick-Democracy-mp3.zip
