Collective Motion (Out 01/23/2019)

Stephanie Cooke is founder and leader of Sarca, the jazz pop group based in Portland, Oregon. Sarca’s sound is at once smooth and hardcore, drawing influence from Stephanie’s jazz and classical roots, with flavors from artists such as Moonchild, Joni Mitchell, and Robert Glaspar. Their first album, Collective Motion, was released in January 2019. Stephanie’s music and live performances are an expression of raw vulnerability and honesty--Stephanie believes that by owning her authentic voice, she can empower herself and her audience. After getting her Masters degree in classical piano, Stephanie spent two years touring as the pianist for the indie-pop group the von Trapps, in addition to making guest appearances with the internationally-renowned Pink Martini. Stephanie’s mission with Sarca is to encourage others to embrace their own creative, unique voices.
