ALEXANDRIA, Virginia
United States

Stacy's musical career began at the age of five, in Zweibruken, Germany. Her mother sung in a Gospel Choir and decided to have Stacy open for them that evening. Her solos were "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" and "Jesus Loves Me". After receiving her first standing ovation that night on an Army Recreation Center stage, there was no turning back. She had been bitten by the music bug. She wrote her first song at the age of 6 (a Broadway type tune) performed in her parents living room on the coffee table for company. She performed at every musical opportunity anyone had to offer. Recognizing her energy as a child, her parents kept her enrolled in Tap and Jazz dance classes.

Returning back from Germany her passion for music continued to grow. She performed with a Sweet Adeline Group (female barbershop quartet), Jazz Choir, High School Concert Choirs, and her Youth and Young adult choir at Patuxent United Methodist Church in Calvert County, MD. Her sophomore, junior and senior years she competed and won a position with one of the Tri-County Chorus' in Maryland. Her senior year she competed, and received the opportunity to perform with The Maryland All-State Chorus. She also was awarded The National School Choral Award that year, which is given to one student per school per year. Her senior year her peers voted her "Most Talented". After school she relocated to the DC Metro area and immediately started singing local radio jingles, singing with various Go-Go Bands, doing R&B tracks for LaFace records, and providing voice-overs. She also performed at the Apollo in Harlem, NYC with Reggae Artist Culture Ranks.

Fast forward to the present... with her diverse background she continues to give you toe tapping, head bobbing feel good music that crosses all barriers. After forming The Stacy Brooks Band in February 2007, she was nominated for "New Artist of the Year" by The Washington Area Music Association. Since she began her quest of the blues she has been working non-stop up and down the east coast bridging the age gap on the blues circuit and importing fans from other genres. She has shared the stage with blues greats like Kenny Neal, Bobby Parker, Memphis Gold, Randy Lippincott, Lonie Shields, Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, just to name a few. Her arrangements keep the integrity of traditional Chicago & Delta blues while adding a spruce of rejuvenation. The musicians in her band have played with many other great artists worldwide and bring with them fans of their own. The music they make together with Stacy’s dynamic vocals, will have you wanting more and hooked on their groove.

The highly anticipated Love Peace & The Blues Cd will released in a few months. Bluesmen Kenny Neal and Memphis Gold are producers of the Cd along with Stacy. She wrote 7 of the songs on the CD which inlude some German lyrics to pay tribute to her German background. The CD also boasts several other celebrity guest musicians that I'm sure will have you doing a double take.
