Stace Brandt has listened for a long time, ear to the ground, constantly searching for what makes a song tick. After spending five years in Burlington, Vermont writing songs, collaborating, and playing live to shape her sound, Stace returned to the Boston area where she grew up and jumped into a new scene. Melodically, Stace’s intuition never fails to pack a punch: soul-driven lyrics flow into R&B inflected hooks. Her guitar, minimal and percussive, provides a rhythmic backbone for her smoldering vocals. Powerfully reflective and sentimental, Stace’s music wavers between intimacy and solitude, between living recklessly and intense self-reflection. Stace will release her second EP, Lucky Ones, in February of 2019.
