Raised in a remote part of Montana along the Assiniboine Sioux reservation, Stacy witnessed the vastness and beauty of a harsh land and the enduring people that live in it. Her music tells the tales of the people she grew up with and the people she met on her journey from the buffalo pastures of home, through Boston, Chicago and finally...to New York City. Her songs, voice and piano weave sepia toned tales of human nature and it's brave ability to be ugly. One Way Home, Stacy's first full length album, flips like an eleven chapter adult coloring book.Read More...
Pursuing an organic and classic feel, Stacy and producer Duane Lundy decided to keep many of her first takes, capturing true sponteniety and honesty in ways today's over-production fails to do, even detuning the piano on some of the tracks. Backed by members of Lexington, Kentucky's The Scourge of the Sea and The Apparitions, the album's spacious arrangements sound faithful to one coherent band and not entirely different than Stacy playing solo. The result is a modern classic.
Many of the songs have some type of solitary element ... a lonliness, spoken from above and below the grave, but with a seed of hope. There are also songs about growing, becoming an adult, and all the fears, regrets and disappointments that go along with it while never losing the childlike hopes. Nothing Has Changed - "all the businessmen that came into the Monkey Bar, my first job in NYC, talking fast and heatedly about money, reminded me of the boys trading Star Wars figures...that seemed just as important at the time, but nobody felt like their life was being ruined or falling apart...well, I guess we sort of did...but no kid was going to jump off a building because he didn't get Yoda".
