Stefany Bryan was classically trained in piano for 12 years but it wasn’t until recently that her singer-songwriter role has manifested into something outside of her piano at home. She is an LA transplant, originally from the rainy city of Seattle from where she draws much of her artistic and creative inspiration. Her songs tell truths about the bonafide sad-girl life through simple melodies and honest lyrics.
