Stephanie Rearick is a pianist, vocalist, songwriter, sometimes trumpeter. She is one of the founding members of Madison, Wisconsin rock outfit The Coma Savants (formerly Your Mom SRO). She also regularly performs solo. Rearick's style is pop-ish, classically-influenced art music sometimes tinged with cabaret. Her work with the Coma Savants is more rock and roll, while her solo work focuses more on sensitive and skillful instrumentation. The Bucket Rider is self-recorded and produced, and showcases Rearick's newer solo work and some pieces from a soundtrack she was commissioned to write and perform for the 1924 silent French film L'Inhumaine. 'As much an art-music disc as it is a pop recording, The Bucket Rider moves from aggressively modernist fare like the evocatively sung 'My Lizard' to Brecht-Weill-inspired work like the woozy title track. Throughout, Rearick's trilling pipes and sophisticated digits piece out some very sophisticated music.' -- Isthmus.
