“Absolutely beautiful. Great work… It’s so nice to see and hear this.”

– Steve Vai

Scheherazade Stone and Brian Gore of “The Sing Strings” blend two unique styles for voice and guitar into one mesmerizing melange of soul, blues, folk, jazz, and fingerstyle guitar influences.  Their combination of top notch solo fingerstyle guitar in tandem with duets featuring world class vocals is one of a kind.

BRIAN GORE has emerged in the past decade as a leading figure in the world of acoustic guitar. His emotive, expressive style combines influences from folk, jazz and classical music. Acoustic Guitar Magazine says, “Gore’s finely crafted poetic ‘songs without words’ take the listener on a spellbinding, emotional ride. He has great facility as a player, but it’s the depth and range of moods his pieces evoke that makes his music such a pleasure.”  Brian is the founder of International Guitar Night (IGN/USA), a grouping of some of the most creative acoustic guitarists worldwide.

Scheherazade Stone got her first name from her parents who raised her in a musical way. She’s collaborated with players ranging from Don Cherry, Chico Freeman, Doug Carn, Donald Byrd, and Omar Sosa to Jai Uttal and Cheb I Sabbah. She also appeared on a Grammy nominated CD from the Hieroglyphics Ensemble on a song entitled “The World Is Gifted.”

“I love Scheherazade Stone and it’s always interesting to hear her sing,” proclaims JH Tompkins of the SF Guardian.

Julia Chase of the SF Weekly says, “Vocalist Scheherazade Stone is the scene stealer, a vision of Josephine Baker in vintage gowns, she drifts effortlessly between her character Paulette and her place in the band.”
