Still working on that hot first release.



The response of musicians and audiences rewards and reciprocates her passion and intensity. A phenomenon occurs when she gets on stage. Regardless of the ensemble, she enlivens any set. It is evident in the reaction that she gets from musicians. She seamlessly fits into any ensemble as a musician. Stacey will engage any member of the band in an improvised “call and response” or “follow my lead” that drives audiences wild.
