BIO

 

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.

After studying music at Millikin 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.

In the summer of 2011, Stacey recorded her debut album Steady Rhythm.  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.”

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, Beach House, and Brandi Carlile.  All great American songwriters, we see “Fragile Forest” channeling Carlile in the best of ways, both lyrically and musically.”

Randol’s second album Fables was released February 2014. Fables was recorded in a home studio and takes a different approach than the first album.  After listening to Fables, Randol hopes the album takes the listener on a relatable journey, where they are not bored with one particular sound or subject. Chuck Dauphin with Music News Nashville compares her style of song to the melancholy sadness of Orbison and writes, “At the end of the day, I don’t really know how to categorize this music – other than simply say it’s good. It’s a little bit of everything stylistically, and will keep you guessing what is coming next from track to track, but Randol is definitely onto something, and that is very evident!”

Randol’s songs have been featured in TV shows such as Rectify, Dance Moms, Say Yes To The Dress and The Comedians. And her song “Open Roads” premiered at Sundance Film Festival in the film Grandma starring Lily Tomlin.
