Bio

Equally at home singing her heart out with a stripped-down acoustic sound and letting poetic lyrics saturate an audience, or rocking full tilt with the melodic dynamics of a complete band....either way it's infectious, and either way it's true Stacy Koviak style.

Her music is fresh and powerful - the compositions driven by potent, introspective lyrics and an equally dynamic guitar playing style. She is a multifaceted artist who emerges from a diverse musical background combining folk, indie, jazz, and alternative to create a pleasant blend of intuitive rock. The self-profound tales of love, loss, and emotional struggle that are key components to her songs relate to a wide audience of all ages and musical tastes.

Growing up in a small mid-west town with a musical family Stacy picked up the guitar at eleven and began composing songs shortly after. A true introvert at heart, this artist's intimate songwriting leaves you feeling connected to every song she sings. Her musical style varies as much as the list of comparisons.

Stacy released her EP "Time to Fly" in 2002 and it was quickly apparent that there was something special here. The cd immediately had many tracks picked up by Richmond's radio stations local shows and the album was well received by everyone - keeping old fans happy and gaining her many new ones!

Stacy spent the next few years gigging and in the studio working on her much anticipated full length LP, entitled "Treading Bleu." With this album she took a more artistic approach to the project as a whole and the outcome was a dynamic cd which gracefully displayed her diverse songwriting styles and sounds. Treading Bleu features acoustic tracks, full band tracks, and a few songs in between. Fueled with slightly darker undertones than on her prior EP - this album continued her journey into composing with a full sound....which led to her first band. With the expansion of the sound, and completion of the album it was apparent that a larger live sound was in order. She teamed up with a talented group of musicians to form a unique sound that allows a whole new interpretation to her solo stage show.

After spending six years on the east coast based out of Richmond, VA, Stacy relocated back to the midwest in 2007 and can currently be found playing venues throughout Michigan and the surrounding states.

She continually makes a positive impression in local music scenes and has built up a diverse fan base throughout her career sharing the stage with various local and national bands, headlining as a solo acoustic act in clubs and performing in a variety of area Festivals. She has been a participating artist in the Richmond Music Festival and Art Expo, CAM Fest, The Carytown WM Festival, the Fete de la Musique Festival, and was a featured performer in The Richmond Songwriter's Series. Stacy has received praise from the Richmond Music Journal, and her music also maintains steady air play on both XL102's "Studio B," and Y101's "Community Service" radio programs, and can also be caught these days on WIDR FM.

Stacy's shared the stage with national acts like Mat Kearney, Mute Math, Griffin House, Sin City Revival and countless local and regional bands. She's recently started a new project entitled "Treading Bleu" and will spend 2011 gigging and recording a new album.

A true musician. Miss Koviak skillfully plays acoustic guitar, electric guitar, & drums along with writing, singing, and performing original music. She's also an accomplished bass player - playing in the band Dooley Noted (another female fronted group.)
