But Stacey’s six-song release has a range of other vibes too, including old-school funk and soul. There’s the pleading ballad “Make Your Move,” the funky jazzy swirl “Mercy,” playful peppy piano pop of “Follow Me Down,” and darker monster “Give Up The Ghost.” The title-track, “Heartbeat,” Stacey says, “epitomizes the whole process of making this record. It's just a joyful song about moving forward and looking ahead. It's essentially about finding love, about realizing you're on the verge of something good."
As a solo artist, Stacey has released 2 CDs independently, which continue to receive airplay from Canadian radio stations including CBC radio. She plays live shows extensively throughout the year, both as a solo artist and with her dynamic 8-piece band, including a weekly residency at Toronto's premiere jazz club, Reservoir Lounge.
Her latest EP, "Heartbeat" will be released January 25, 2019.
