Up until two years ago, Stephanie Rice was living a double life as an aspiring musician and a burgeoning research scientist, pouring all her energy into each wildly different pursuit.
“Almost every night I’d leave work in my lab coat, run to my car and change into my leather pants, then get up onstage and sing all night long,” says the Texas-born singer/songwriter. Despite finding a certain thrill in that chaos, Rice longed to fully commit to her music: a genre-blurring blend of soul and pop and folk-rock, emotionally raw yet gracefully composed. So at the start of 2016—soon after publishing her groundbreaking HIV research in The Journal of AIDS—Rice left the medical field and threw herself into finishing up her debut album. With Dear Misery arriving in June 2016 and gaining lavish acclaim from local media, Rice next scored a spot on season 12 of NBC’s The Voice—later emerging as a top 11 finalist.
Now based in L.A., Rice is working to bring her sophomore effort to life. While the album is deeply informed by the painful experience of getting kicked out of her house after coming out to her family at age 18, Rice’s forthcoming material also shines with an undeniable sense of strength and resilience. Rice has further sharpened her vocal presence by joining forces with her older brother, grammy nominated Benjamin Rice. In offering up songs like “Pages,” Rice reveals a vulnerability that transcends all barriers, and ultimately inspires others to embrace the beauty of their truth.
