Occupation: singer/songwriter

This soulful jazz singer has a sultry voice and smooth charm. You can find Stinson using both to great effect at the Warwick Melrose Hotel’s Library Bar, making the crowd swoon with a big smile on her face. (She also puts them to use while hosting EnerJazz, a music series on Time Warner Cable.) But Stinson does have a moodier side, and she uses a different kind of art to express it, often picking up a paintbrush and letting it spill out onto the canvas.
