Tonya Steiner / Bio

I play an eclectic mix across the genre's from 1930 through today! However, my first love is Contemporary Christian. Singing for the Lord is always fulfilling.

I started a little later than most, but with hard work, dedication and a GREAT vocal coach, anything is possible! Helen Welch is who was recommended as a coach, and I have been using her skills, talents and sheer utter kindness for the past seven years. Helen began teaching me techniques for various singing styles. I immediately fell in love with the old Jazz Standards, artists like Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, and Nina Simone; but have also found a place in my heart for newer stylists, Norah Jones, Diana Krall and (of course) Helen Welch. She has taught me that it is not about sounding like the original artist when covering a song, but about making the song your own. I choose pieces that speak to me, whether it fits a mood at that particular time or just about my personality in general.

I hope to hear from you soon!
