Stacey didn’t always know what her calling in life was going to be, but one common vision remained the same. The sounds of music and the personal vulnerability that came along with it, followed her every step down life’s walk.
Like most, Stacey grew up warming her vocal chords during her Sunday morning church services before an afternoon filled with her dad’s “walk down memory lane” records of The Beatles, The Turtles, The Beach Boys, and Elvis Presley.
After studying music at Milikin University, the pieces began to fall in place and Stacey’s musical career took her on travels to Italy, China, and throughout the USA, only to find herself settling down in Music City with only one goal in mind: To share with the world, through the most intimate way imaginable, her story.
Step by step, a new chapter of her life began to unfold. Beginning with the most basic of chords, a pen, and a paper – the blueprints for ‘Steady Rhythm,’ the debut album from Stacey Randol, were officially underway. In the summer of 2011, Stacey ventured into the studio with producer, Tyler Cain, to create the vibrant album. Indie Music Reviewer writes, “Every song on the album is memorable and catchy. After one listen you will be left feeling enchanted and re-energized. Her vocals are warm and inviting, gentle yet hearty. Steady Rhythm is an eleven- song remedy guaranteed to bring some sunshine in your life.”
Stacey recently released her latest single, “Fragile Forest.” She began writing this song at one of her favorite Nashville spots–Radnor Lake. Awaiting The Flood writes, ”Leaving the beach behind, this serious tune still features her inimitable writing, as well as strong folk roots, like Joan Baez with a spoonful of honey. She sings, Whisper your secret of trusting spring to come, personifying nature almost as a lover, giving life and breath to the world we’re killing. It’s beautiful poetry, sung with beautiful voice, cementing her spot among female songwriters, even if you haven’t heard of her yet.”
American Songwriter writes, “Stacey Randol is a pop artist that sprinkles in some folk for good measure. Her influences span the past and present, a list including Paul Simon, Fleetwood Mac, Harry Nilsson, Vampire Weekend, Angus & Julia Stone, Beach House, and Brandi Carlile. All great American songwriters, we see “Fragile Forest” channeling Carlile in the best of ways, both lyrically and musically.”
