Stephy Leigh’s original songs come from an eclectic background. She is a jazz and classically trained trumpet player from small-town Ohio, turned singer-songwriter and music teacher. Her unique voice has been compared to artists such Loretta Lynn, Ellie King, Wanda Jackson, and Gillian Welch. She is a little country, a little soul, and a lot of heart. Stephy plays the trumpet in one of Arizona’s only 1920s Hot Jazz bands, King Copper. She is proud to not only represent Prescott’s ever-growing Americana music scene, but also to be able to inspire future generations of songwriters and players to do the same.
