Stacy grew up in NY and attended college at the State University of Stony Brook, as a Music Composition Major at the age of 13. She graduated High School at 17 and college at age 19.
After touring the US and abroad, she settled in NYC to write music for ?lm and TV. In her early years in New York, Stacy became known for her thematic songwriting skills. Some of her credits include an original tribute song, which she performed on NBC?s The Tom Snyder show, as well as a tribute song she wrote and performed for the ABC Eyewitness News vigil coverage for John Lennon.
While appearing on the Tom Snyder Show, Stacy met country music legend Merle Haggard. He invited her to attend a Grand Ole Opry show at Carnegie Hall. It was there that Stacy met artists like Roy Acuff and Tammy Wynnette. She was encouraged by Acuff and Haggard to move to Nashville, TN, as they thought she would ?nd her niche, as a country music
songwriter. Soon, Stacy began to commute to from NY to Nashville on a regular basis, writing and recording. Her songs soon found their way to the
independent country music charts. After deciding to make the permanent move to Nashville, Stacy landed a publishing deal with EMI Music Publishing. Dancin? With Elvis, a song she co-wrote with hit songwriter,
Ron Harbin, went to number one in Australia and remained there for 16 weeks. Recorded by Australian artist, Gina Jeffreys, the song went #1, won the CMT video of the year award and played on Australian CMT for 2 years.
While enjoying this new phase of her music career in Nashville, Stacy was asked to write two songs for the Warner Brothers? recording - A Children?s Chanukah. One of these songs, The Hand That Lights The Candle was subsequently performed by the Nashville Symphony and Metro School?s Children?s Choir. More and more, Stacy was asked to create songs with
Jewish content for events around Nashville. Soon, she decided to record a CD of these songs. As her ?rst Jewish CD, Find Your Voice, began to circulate outside the borders of the Nashville Jewish community, Stacy
found herself with offers from communities around the country, inviting her to perform in services and in concert.
It wasn?t long before Judaism became the focus for Stacy?s musical expression. Three CDs and 10 years later, she continues to tour across the US and has performed for Jewish organizations such as Jewish
Federation, Hadassah, URJ Biennial, B?nai B?rith, CAJE, United Jewish Communities and many more. She has performed in services and in concert at JCCs, congregations and youth camps around the US.
Stacy has been invited on numerous occasions to perform her song, It Will Never Happen Again at the Tennessee State Capital for the Yom Hashoah
Annual Memorial, as well as for the dedication of the Holocaust Memorial at the JCC in Nashville TN.
In 2006, Stacy was invited to create the title track for a double cd set for the Voices For Israel organization, which donates the money from the sales of its cds to victims of terrorism in Israel. Her song, Keeping The Faith was sung by over 50 female international Jewish recording artists. Also in 2006, Stacy was the ?rst vocal music Artist-in-Residence for the JCCA?s Maccabi ArtsFest in Baltimore. In 2010, Stacy will returned to Baltimore, once again as vocal music Artist-in-Residence, as the JCCA combined the world
renowned Maccabi Games with ArtsFest for the very ?rst time.
On September 29th, 2011, Stacy and her 6 piece band of world class musicians (invited by Temple Solel of Hollywood, Fl) came to the Parker Playhouse in Fort Lauderdale, FL, where Stacy lead the music for the 2nd night of Rosh Hashana, at a service where 4 Broward County congregations and Jewish Federation came together to celebrate. This enormously successful event and endeavor brought together the spirit and joy of four congregations, and had great impact on the community.
Stacy is proud that her music is now a part of countless services around the country. Rabbis, Cantors, soloists, congregational choirs and
community choirs of all ages perform her works, which have also been included as part of the Ruach Compilation Series created by URJ Books
And Music and featured on internet radio, year round. It Must Be Chanukah, Stacy's Chanukah CD, includes new original selections for the festival of lights. Stacy?s music is also performed by secular choirs; such as the upcoming performance of Haneirot Halalu by the 300 voice choir at the Hillside Intermediate School in Bridgewater, NJ; and The University School of Nashville, TN?s annual performance of The Hand That Lights The Candle for their Holiday Concert.
