Biography

EVERY NOW AND AGAIN … A NEW DIVA COMES ALONG

Launching New Musical Genre: “Alternative Soul”

Combining a unique blend of R&B, pop and soul, Stacye Branché placed her own brand of music, “alternative soul”, on the map with her CD “I Believe”, which has earned her a worldwide fan base from England to Japan, and everywhere in between.

Soothing sounds that rock to the rhythm, Branché’s unique brand of music, regarded as “something fresh” … “something familiar”, takes the listener on a sophisticated heart-warming journey through the realms of love. “I Believe” was released on Branché’s very own Soulfare Music label, and also marked her debut as executive producer.

Working with long-term friend and producer Lloyd “LT” Tolbert, Branché delivers lasting lyrics and beautiful ballads, mid and up-tempo songs in a collection that reaffirms our conviction for love.

Branché wrote and recorded the “I Believe” songs; “How Did We Come To This”, for the ScreenGems/Sony picture The Brothers; “Don’t Stop”, for the Dreamworks picture Biker Boys; “Come Into My World”, for the Independent film Kingston High; and “Don’t Fight”, for the independent film Blue Moon.

Mentored by legendary artists such as Stevie Wonder, Herb Alpert and R&B group The Emotions, Branché’s influences also include Minnie Riperton, Dinah Washington, Ella Fitzgerald, and Carole King – all singers who have notoriously welled fan’s emotions for decades. She has gained wisdom from Barry White and in her own words “lyrical inspiration” from Stevie Wonder and “spiritual gratitude” from Herb Alpert’.

Giving her audience a new take on the ‘neo-soul’ vibe, Branché’s vocal interpretation and emotional lyrics conjure up emotions that warm and send your heart soaring. Nostalgic, secure, seductive and grounded in the realities and complexities of relationships, Branché articulates the wealth of human feelings and in doing so, move you.

Branche’ is currently finishing up songs for her next release taking her genre of “Alternative soul” to another level.

Branché’s CD “I Believe” is available direct from www.stacyebranche.com. The site features sample tracks as well as an extensive photo gallery.

Lyrics

"Silly"

Written By: S. Branche/L. Tolbert

SILLY

VERSE
What was I thinkin’
To send you away?
I was just bein’ silly
Not let you stay
In the night I feel so lonely
Baby thinkin’ of you
Need to get you back
Wish I knew just what to do
All day and night I wish that I could hold you tight
I want to put aside my pride, and love you so right

Hook
Silly of me to be thinkin’ of you
Silly of me to think that you still want me
Silly of me to think that you’d come back to me

VERSE
How I wish I hadn’t sent away
I dream about you every night and day
Can you forgive me for the mistake I made
I don’t know what I thinkin’
I should’ve known I’d be missin’ you
All I’m wishing now is that you feel the same
All day and all night I’m wishing you were back in my life
I wish I knew how to make what I made wrong all right

Hook
Silly of me to be thinkin’ of you
Silly of me to think that you still want me
Silly of me to think that one day you’d come back to me

Change
Oh I’ve been so silly
Do you still want me?
Won’t you come back?
Oh I’ve been so silly
Can’t stop thinkin of you
Can you forgive me
Won’t you come back and love me

Hook
Silly of me to be thinkin’ of you
Silly of me to think that you still want me
Silly of me to think that you’d come back to me

"The Way You Love Me"

Written By: S. Branche/L. Tolbert

THE WAY YOU LOVE ME

VERSE
I love the way I feel about you
Never felt this way before
It’s somethin’ I can’t describe
I got feelin’ I don’t want to hide
There’s a magic in your touch
I never wanted anybody this much
I love the way that you’re touchin’ me
The way that you hold and kissin me

HOOK
Oh Babe
The way you love me
Giving me a love so sweet
Baby give it all to me
I love the way you love me

Oh babe
The way you love me
Giving me a love so sweet
Baby give me all you got
Don’t let this lovin’ stop

VERSE
I love your hands all over me body
As you whisper softly to me
How you want to male love to me
How good it’s going to be

I want to feel you close to me
Close as we two can be
I love the way that you’re touchin’ me
The way you feel all over me

HOOK

CHANGE
Let’s get this lovin started
Don’t make me wait darlin’
I’m wanting you so much
I can’t get enough of your touch

VERSE
I’ve been in love before
But it wasn’t this way
Oh Boy what you do to me
How you drive me crazy

HOOK

Then You Came

Written By: Stacye Branche And Lloyd Tolbert

Then you Came
Writers: Stacye Branche’ and Lloyd Tolbert

INTRO
Let’s start Here
I want to tell you how you make me feel…..

VERSE
For so long I waited for love
But love couldn’t seem to find me
No, no not giving up hope I wondered and dreamed
What my life would be like in love
In love…..

Hook
Then you came chasing loneliness away
They’re no words to explain the joy you bring to me

Then you came turning sky’s blue that were gray
Giving more than love everyday
I thank you baby for loving me
For loving me….

Verse
I didn’t know love could feel this good
I didn’t know I ‘d wake everyday with a smile on my face no
You make sure I want for nothing
Always giving all that I need
You are all that I need…..

Hook

Change
Out of nowhere you were there
Bringing love so sweet
I never thought love would happen to me
Then you came…..
