Little Walter meets Joan Jett and Tammy Wynette - Harmonica blowin’ hell-cat STACIE COLLINS is blazing a trail traveled by few women. Sporting a hard-core honky-tonk wail while backed by a slam-bang rock 'n' roll band, she weds high energy roots rock-n-roll, raunchy blues & vintage honky-tonk twang. Based in Nashville, TN, Stacie tours the US, Scandinavia and Europe regularly and has even spawned a Japanese “Stacie Collins” tribute band.
Produced by rock legend Dan Baird (The Georgia Satellites / Homemade Sin), Collins’ 2007 release, THE LUCKY SPOT became a fan favorite and received airplay world wide. A ten song, southern rockin', harp howlin' blues romp, had this record been released twenty or thirty years ago it would have sounded as natural on '70s FM radio alongside ZZ Top and The Rolling Stones as it does next to contemporary rockers like the Drive-By Truckers or Blackberry Smoke.
Her latest CD, SOMETIMES YA GOTTA (second produced by Baird) was released in November 2010 to rave reviews. Packed with 12 tracks of giddy-up rattle-n-roll, this disk features the guitar work of Warner E. Hodges (Jason & The Scorchers / Homemade Sin), Eric ‘EBO’ Borash (Radney Foster) and Dan Baird along with the rhythm section of Jimmy Lester (Los Straitjackets / Webb Wilder) on drums and Stacie's rocker husband / writing partner, Al Collins (Jason and The Scorchers) on bass.
Classic Rock Magazine proclaims that SOMETIMES YA GOTTA is “Guaranteed to get any party started... Imagine a late-night lock-in jam with Aerosmith, The Stones and ZZ Top, fronted by the equivalent of Ronnie Van Zant, or maybe even Shania Twain with balls.... It's sassy, sexy & rocks like a bitch".
Currently Stacie is gearing up for a World tour and will be filming a live DVD to be released in the fall of 2012 on Blue Rose Records (Germany).
Armed with a new album that is sure to rate as her best work yet, a live show that makes you say “damn girl!” and a band that makes you want to be in a band (and if you are in a band, makes ya want to be in a better one), Stacie Collins is sittin’ in a sling-shot and the arm is drawn back tight. This is one show you don't want to miss.
