"All Bets Were Off As Brian Stace Took the Stage at Aura"

STUDIO CITY - Back from playing for our troops in Iraq, country music recording artist/songwriter Brian Stace and company took the stage this past Wednesday night, in Studio City, and all bets were off as they blew the preceding band out of the water within seconds. The blonde-maned, sparkling blue-eyed singer came out strong belting the humorous "Good Girls Go to Heaven (Bad Girls Go Everywhere)," which had the crowd on its feet from the start. Followed by other catchy tunes mostly off his latest CD release Blue Eyed Bad Boy (on his own label Little Round Records) including the title track, the honest "Half a Man", and "I Don't Wanna Wish I Had" (which New Music Weekly Magazine voted the fastest moving song on the charts) kept the crowd in high gear throughout his hour-long set. His band gets a lot of credit for doing one heck of a job backing their boy including Jennifer Spingola, who plays a mean fiddle, and bassist/backing vocalist Jessica Fagre. Guitarist Mark Agnesi added to the group's "spunk" bouncing around to each song, and Jeff Jarett was no slouch either on drums. Stace ended with two songs off his previous CD Country Music Ain't Noise Pollution like his popular audience favorite "Honey Get Your Clothes Off...Daddy's Comin' Home" and "Red Blooded Country Girl."

Next, Stace and his band hop aboard the Brian Stace tour bus, which boasts its own stage on top of the vehicle, complete with sound, lighting, even...fog(!)

"Blue Eyed Bad Boy - CD Review"

By Jon Stewart

In rock, the lyrics in the first 45 seconds don’t matter the first time you hear the song (that’s why the hook was created); in country music, they do. On this CD, the songwriting ranges from good to superb on 7 of the 10 original songs included. “Something Strong” starts the album and we are introduced to a voice that will favor those who listen to the rest of the songs. His rich baritone makes each word resonate with the feelings, desires and unanswered questions that pack the album.

“The Next Best Thing” has a great rhythm that hasn’t been heard since early Jimmy Buffet. Lyrically, the put-on is well done while sustaining a high level of cleverness from verse to verse. It’s a great dance song as well.

“I Don’t Wanna Wish I Had” captures the essence of no regrets in country music. A pretty song that is dedicated to his lover, it’s musically fulfilling while making its point. “Half a Man” is a good dance song and has a great hook. This song showcases the slide guitar and really exposes the top notch band he has selected for the album.

“Time Starts to Fly” is the best song on the CD. When he gets to the hook “Every time I look into your eyes, Time starts to fly” the passion and emotion are overwhelming as written by Kelley Lovelace with Billy Crain. Grammy-nominated Lovelace, who has co-written songs with Brad Paisley including “He Didn’t Have To Be” and a #1 hit on Billboard, “Wrapped Around” with Paisley and Chris DuBois and a number #2 Billboard hit, is to be congratulated for this beautiful piece of country magic.

“Blue Eyed Bad Boy” misuses the rock classic “American Woman” lick for its overriding musical tension and is let down by the song’s reference to rock and roll. It doesn’t work as a dance song either. Written by Stace, Page Jackson and Marty Brown and thankfully short at 2.37, this song is the only one with an attribution to Stace.

The next two songs are well-written songs with lots of interest to country music fans. “Alice in Wonderland” is a dreamy, upbeat song that has excellent musicianship and offers a sharp contrast to the following song “Wanda”. In that song, a tale of a town’s mean-spiritedness that ends with the title character’s suicide seems like it is taken out of a headline from some small town.

Bio

Brian Stace hails from the farming communities of southern Wisconsin. Since he was a teenager, this cowboy was no stranger to a hard day’s work: From milking cows, harvesting tobacco, and picking rocks in the hot summers of Wisconsin to removing asbestos & working construction.

Stace finally found comfort in his life by listening to his heart and pursuing his dream of writing and singing Country music. He experienced divine inspiration after a near death experience crash landing in a Southwest jet. Soon after, he re-evaluated his priorities in life and eventually changed everything about what he was doing and discovered his God-given talent for music. He has a voice that is beautiful and honest. He has a natural ability to write songs and work with songwriters, turning his own experiences into lyrics that are sassy, sexy and untamed. And he has a stage presence that drives audiences wild!

Stace released his first album, "Country Music Ain’t Noise Pollution," which received international airplay. Encouraged by this initial success, he put together a team of professionals in Nashville to record another CD, "Blue Eyed Bad Boy." The project was recorded in Nashville by Two Monkeys Productions producers Kent Wells and Tony Smith (Dolly Parton, Joe Nichols, and Keith Urban). His first single off the album, "I Don’t Wanna Wish I Had," was well received, moving quickly up the charts and getting airplay at radio stations all over the nation.

Over the past few years, Stace has toured throughout the US and Canada, playing at several of the top Country Music Festivals. He has opened for Junior Brown, Terry Clark, Shooter Jennings, and Darryl Worley. His music has given him the opportunity to play for the troops on his many tours to Iraq, Afghanistan, Kosovo, Germany, and Italy. While touring in Iraq he finished shooting his music video for the single, "Honey Get Your Clothes Off (Daddy’s Comin’ Home)," with the soldiers. His latest radio tour lasted two months, spanned ten states, and covered 10,000 miles. He has also appeared on major television stations throughout the United States, including Tennessee, Wisconsin, Texas, California, and Arkansas.

Brian Stace is the total package of star-quality talent, drive, and professionalism…an entertainer primed for success! His inspirational story is about the blue-collar American Dream in action and coming true. He speaks the language of working men and women. Stace is one of the most creative, down-to-earth, hardworking, country music talents today.
