What Was I Thinking // Stefani Capizzi

Born and raised in New England, my family had a love for a variety of music. I experienced 40's and 50's organ music in my maternal grandparent's bar room. My father played folk guitar and his father played jazz guitar. These influences provided early exposure to something I came to love. Playing guitar and singing. I received my first guitar, a small Yamaha, and began writing songs at age 13.
This became a stabilizing factor in my early life. It helped me navigate through many difficult times. Going forward, I was raising a family for many years and not doing too much musically, but still writing songs. Around 2005, I began to nervously perform at local venues in Vermont. Over time, I became more comfortable with it. Eventually, playing music for people became fun and important to me.
Most of my songs portray a picture of things I was going through at the time, or my thoughts on a variety of subjects, usually related to relationships in one way or another.
Artists who have influenced me over the years include: Joni Mitchell, Bonnie Raitt, Patsy Cline, Bob Dylan, Patti Griffin, CSN&Y, Johnny Cash, Nora Jones, Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Nicks, and SO many more.
Unleashing a blend of soul, country, blues, and folk favorites with my guitar and bluesy vocals, I play a mixture of songs, including original creations that will leave you pondering life, love, and bittersweet truths.
