Madness To Creation: The song “Want Me” is heart wrenching, what have you learned the most about yourself in that song?
Stacey: I’ve learned that I should always speak my mind and not be afraid of what people might think. I’ve learned to not let immature boys get to me (LOL) and that I should always put myself first. Musically, I’ve learned I love putting rock and trap/hip-hop influences in my songs. This is the first song that’s truly felt like “me” that I’ve worked on/recorded, which is a huge step in my artistry.
Madness To Creation: You graduated from the Berklee School of Music, what is the number one takeaway you had from your studies there?
Stacey: To always stay true to my artistic vision and not put too much pressure on myself. Also, realizing how lucky I was to make so many incredible friends there that I still collaborate and work with closely – I’m sure I always will, too.
Madness To Creation: Describe your music using a movie title.
Stacey: “Crazy Stupid Love” hahahahaha
Madness To Creation: Five favorite albums of all time?
