About Steve Lipman
Vocalist Steve Lipman wants you to join him in rediscovering the depth and beauty of the music of the Great American Songbook. Like so much fine art, this music has withstood the test of time, and remains alive, vibrant, and contemporary. For Steve, the works of the Songbook connect with the soul that yearns for love and cries at heartbreak. He aims to bring this music to a new generation of listeners who are surely aware of it, but have yet to appreciate it fully. In pursuit of that goal, Steve’s latest project, Hats Off, is his most ambitious and anticipated release. “It’s about the things that are most important in life,” Lipman said recently. “It’s about love; all kinds of love: romantic love, love for your family, love of country.”

Steve’s dream of becoming a vocalist began at a very young age as he was sifting through his mother’s 78 RPM records. She had quite a varied collection of talented vocalists, but it was soon clear that Steve’s favorite was Frank Sinatra. To Steve, Sinatra was the ultimate storyteller. He communicated the essence of life to each individual listener like no singer had done before and made the connection. Today, Steve retells the stories that Sinatra and so many other notable artists explored, conjuring the essence of the great masters of the Songbook without impersonation. The arrangements and performances are creatively transformed, leaving no question in the audience’s mind as to who is on stage touching each of them with these unforgettable stories.
Steve, a dentist by trade, launched his career as a vocalist when a patient, Rod Warner, brought Steve into the studio and produced his first album, a primer of Sinatra standards titled There’s a Song in My Heart. His sophomore release, a full-length album, Ridin’ the Beat, reached deeper into the Great American Songbook with handpicked melodies that formed a dynamic set. That album, co-produced by Warner and bassist/arranger Dan Prindle, ultimately went on to receive excellent reviews from the critics and public alike. It charted #2 in the College Music Journal’s Top Jazz Adds and enjoyed considerable radio play.
Since then, Steve has pursued an ambitious performance schedule with headlining dates throughout the Greater Hartford area. He has also spent several years working with noted singer and vocal coach Eric Arceneaux and is in intense training with Connecticut’s Lady of Jazz, the incomparable Dianne Mower. Today, Steve is providing cutting edge health care at his successful dental practice and is poised to release his third most ambitious recording project yet, Hats Off, which was recorded live in studio and features arrangements by Dan Prindle and Nick Borges with production by Nate Christy and Mark Alan Miller . As Steve recently said in an interview, “The creativity demanded by a fluid jazz arrangement is no less than what is required for the art of dentistry. Ultimately, it’s the people who I care for, perform to, and connect with that excite me and keep me driving forward.”
