Mr. Stacey, or "Bdx" as he is called (an abbreviated version of his last name, "Boudreaux") began playing around 1976 when he thought the 4 strings he had on his nifty Silvertone from the Western Auto was the thing.
Most of the groups he made an effort with usually focused on the music he would write and compose, only. They would cover maybe 2-3 songs because they were at that time "super bad!" ..(as he would put it). Bdx served as a change in tempo for any venue that he would perform for. For the basic reason that no-one knew any of his music (but that was changing). Interesting point he makes is
"....my audience couldnt judge it in the sense of --"hey...that didn't t sound like the CD"....they either liked it or not. And for that matter, I didn't have a CD.!!... ha ha..."
As much as Bdx professes to love playing good, solid & complex rock and roll, his heart remains with and gravitates towards the acoustic sound, providing the platform to share personal and noteworthy life events in which he attributes survival of, to his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He notes "...my BEST thinking got me in the muck and mire..."
Being a self taught musician and without any formal training or lessons, Bdx knows without a doubt there is a lot more to learn. Seemingly, given his latest rounds of track releases, with the introduction of string sections, piano pieces, bongos, synthesized segments, leads and harmonies into his music, I think it's safe to say Bdx is moving along in pursuing the "lot more" there is to learn. StudioBDX? Indeed.
