About Me

Stefano Minder is a jazz-soul vocalist, composer, and pianist. He was born in Switzerland, to a Swiss father and a German mother but was raised in Italy. Stefano studied classical and jazz music from a very young age and quickly began to specialize in singing, song writing, and performing. He released his first self-produced and self-promoted album in 2017 called "Love Through My Eyes."

Stefano studied with some of Europe's most well-known jazz singers and artists including Elisabetta Antonini and Maria Pia de Vito. He pursued his professional course of study at the Saint Louis College of Music in Rome, Italy, where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in jazz voice and minored in jazz piano, improvisation, jazz arrangement, and classical harmony. In 2016, Stefano won an Erasmus scholarship and spent one semester at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy in Leipzig, Germany. In 2018, Stefano started studying in the New York Jazz Master course at the Prince Claus Conservatoire in Groningen, Netherlands.

Stefano has performed at many renowned festivals, concerts, and music events across Italy, Switzerland, and Germany, including but not limited with the Stefano Minder Trio at the Roma Jazz Festival in 2010 and the Roma Jammin’ Festival in 2015, and with the Burnoguala 'Large Vocal Ensemble’ at the Ravello Music Festival in July 2016. This is the same festival at which many world-renowned jazz artists such as Maria Joao, Norma Winstone, Ralph Towner, and Wayne Shorter perform.

Since 2017, Stefano has been continuously touring throughout numerous European cities and even further in Georgia and Australia. Stefano has collaborated with artists such as Kurt Elling, Sheila Jordan, Sashal Vasandani, Melissa Aldana, J.D. Walter, Freddie Bryant, Michael Moore and Michael Philip Mossman.

Projects

Love Through My Eyes (2017)

In 2017, Stefano released his first self-produced album called "Love Through My Eyes." It was recorded in Germany and Switzerland. The release of his debut album introduces his audience to a new level of artistic achievement and personal maturity. The reviews and support were very positive: "Stefano Minder and his band are one of the greatest hopes of today's jazz and soul music because of their freshness, uniqueness, enthusiasm and innovation." – BiBazz

Moresche e Altre Invenzioni (2018)

Moresche e Altre Invenzioni (2018) In 2018, Stefano participated in the recording of Moresche e Altre Invenzioni, with the Burnogualà Large Vocal Ensemble under the direction and supervision of Maria Pia de Vito. The album contains great rhythmic and counterpoint material, interludes, sound influences from Africa, music from the Neapolitan Renaissance era, and reflects the melting pot of the contemporary jazz world.

#tellyourheart (2020)

Stefano is currently working on his new album, #tellyourheart, which will be released in 2020.

#tellyourheart depicts the dating part in a relationship as one of the most beautiful and challenging season. Different feelings are involved during this season: it is a fresh, wonderful and exciting time for the relationship. Everything looks new. The flourishing love changes everything: emotions, dreams and colors. #tellyourheart is a journey into one’s heart: a gracious, joyful and colorful heart; a heart that is young in its ways and behaviors; a heart that has much love to pour out as a generous gift.

The Gap Year

Dear ones,

As this year comes to an end, I would like to take a moment to look back and shortly review the year that has just been passing by! A special, great, but also demanding year, full of ups and downs, exciting and challenging moments in the music as well as in the personal field.

On the overview, it has been a 'gap year' for me, because since the release of the album 'Love Through My Eyes', I have been taking my time to really reflect and learn from what I was experiencing in the years 2017-2018.

I had the possibility to tour to different countries and meet wonderful and unique people. I had the possibility to further develop myself as a human being and as a musician. I had the opportunity to record the new album which will be released in 2020, and for that I am really thankful!!

All these things made me realize how life is beautiful and always changing. It made me realize that it doesn't matter WHAT you do in life, it's really about HOW you do it and HOW you live your life. Since moving to the Netherlands and pursuing my Master studies, I met so many people from different continents and backgrounds. This made me realize that we are all the same and no one should be left behind. There is beauty in every human being. We should see their heart and soul first and not judge them by their actions!
