Stephanie Biddle (born August 23, 1963) is a Canadian jazz musician. She spent her early childhood in Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, Quebec. Her father was Charlie Biddle, a Montreal-based jazz musician.

Career

She began modeling when she moved to Montreal at age 15, and began her music career fronting the cover band Living Proof, which performed at weddings and local clubs between 1987 and 1989, mostly pop and jazz standards.Brownstein, Bill. "Biddles springing up all over Montreal entertainment scene", "Montreal Gazette", 1988-03-05, p. D4.] Her career took off after she gained the support of a record producer in Paris. Her single "Dis-moi" (1991) reached #11 on the French pop charts. Still, she did not obtain a record deal in Montreal, and for several years spent the winters singing in Le Gosier, Guadeloupe.Perusse, B. "Stephanie Biddle carries the torch", "Montreal Gazette", 2003-03-30, p. B1.]

Biddle has also worked as a model and actor, with engagements on the European and North American "catwalks", along with some 30 significant film roles and television appearances. Her film debut was in 1979 in a Montreal teen film, "Crunch", and she appeared along with her father in the 1988 film "The Moderns". She has worked with several notable actors on the production "A Diva's Christmas Carol". [Imdb-title|0270317|A Diva's Christmas Carol]

She starred as the lead female role of the Opera of Normandy’s "La Haut" in Rouen, France, and was featured in the movies and soundtracks of Hollywood film productions such as "The Whole Nine Yards" [played role of jazz vocalist] [The Whole Nine Yards (2000).

Well, "makeover" may be too polite a term. This Carmen, or Karmen, as played by an ever-spinning, ever-undulating force of nature named Djeinaba Diop Gai, is the earthiest, lustiest Carmen yet] [The Africa Channel Presents: Karmen Gei "The film stars two charismatic, statuesque beauties: Djeinaba Diop Gai as Karmen and Stephanie Biddle as Angelique, the warden of a women's prison where Karmen is initially held] [http://www.theafricachannel.com/programs.php?genre=featurefilm]

She has performed in Hong Kong (at the Lobster Bar at the Island Shangri-La Hotel), China and Brazil, and has relocated to Manhattan. The "Miami Herald" remarked, "On the cusp between jazz’s old vanguard and its new, “Stephanie Biddle possesses the warmth of Sarah Vaughn, the clarity, the bite and the rhythmic sense of Ella Fitzgerald and the sly and elegant style of Nancy Wilson".Fact|date=June 2008

Her brother Charles Jr. is also a performer. Older sister Sonya Biddle is a former Montreal city councillor, and younger sister Tracy is a bartender and occasional singer. [Lalonde, Michelle.
