She grew up in the North San Francisco Bay Area, steeped in her mother’s eclectic music collection. She spent many years as a Shakespearian actress based out of New York City, where she began to sing Jazz again with the incredible Marjorie Eliot in Harlem. in 2014, she moved to her home state of California and began playing music full time, starting the Bay Area based band French Oak, a wild around the edges band that mixes French Jazz Manouche, New Orleans Hot Swing, and Eclectic Global Folk, allowing Stella to explore and play in vocal improvisation, different languages, and song interpretation. She has a deep love for Jazz and its history; she believes it should be an integral part of American childhood curriculum.
