ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In February 2009, in the foothills of Northern California, Stacey Joy went to an open mic night. Although she has always loved music and has played the piano since the age of five the idea of singing in public terrified her. But as she listened to the performers that night she felt inspired. So much so that she spoke her childhood dream aloud for the first time ever. “I want to do that,” she said.

One of her friends heard her and suggested they make a bet. Stacey’s desire to push her limits kicked in and she committed to be up there singing on that stage before the end of the summer.

She wasn't comfortable singing anyone else's songs so she decided to write her own. She had been traveling the world since the age of nineteen and had been exposed to a richness of rhythms and cultures from Fiji to Argentina (where she first picked up a guitar). The roads she has travelled, both internally and externally, brought her the words and melodies she needed. In July 2009 Stacey Joy played her first four songs live on stage. ‘Here’, ‘Dancing’, ‘Softness’ and ‘Down that Road’ were a revelation. The audience felt her music as much as they heard it. And of course, Stacey won the bet.

Since that first performance in the summer of 2009, Stacey has played many gigs and festivals up and down the West coast and in South America. Everywhere she's been, people have told her she should record her music. But like most struggling artists living in the real world, it was difficult to find the time and money to make it happen, without selling out. Stacey wanted to spend the time developing her songs to make them the very best they could be, so the album idea was put on hold while she perfected her craft and waited for the right moment to arrive.

That moment came during a visit to South America in 2011. She fell in love with the incredible natural beauty of the countryside and was inspired to step away from mainstream society and continue her musical and spiritual journey there. Her initial expectations of what life would be like in her new home were soon exceeded. As well as the solitude and time to work on her music, she also found herself part of a vibrant community of gifted artists and evolutionary spirits.

It was the perfect place to begin putting together the album she has always wanted to make. The collection of songs inspired by her own journey. . .
