Stace is an aspiring singer-songwriter and rising social media star best known for her popular videos that have attracted hundreds of thousands of viewers on Facebook. Through her social media presence alone the Savannah, Georgia artist was named Good Grit Woman of The Year in 2017 by Good Grit Magazine. With nearly 50,000 loyal followers, Stace invites people in to her world on a daily basis simply by being herself. Thousands of faithful fans have grown to love watching her sing powerful, soulful ballads from her living room piano each week—the very same piano she kept hidden in a corner of her bedroom, where she wrote music in total isolation for 5 years.
In 2008, Stace began an artistic journey to heal herself after a series of devastating heartbreaks. She pushed her piano in to a hiding spot where she wrote and sang in the solitude of the bedroom corner. This is the place where she found healing and inspiration and where she could release her pain. However, in 2013 a chance meeting led her to form a collaboration with her future manager and producer, Doug Marshall and Alan Price. From that day on, a metamorphosis began. She emerged from the comforts of her cocoon and pushed the piano back in to the living room where she now writes and rehearses her material with the confidence that was once lost. Stace knew it was time to make a change. In October 2014, she entered the studio and began to practice a little flying. Before long, an artistic transformation occurred and the soul of a vibrant artist was born. A once conflicted soul, Stace now offers the world a collection of beautiful, confessional works of art that will be released in to the sky through her debut album, Unraveling, premiering in the spring of 2017.
Stace is signed to Stratus Entertainment where she is managed by Doug Marshall and produced by Alan Price and Scott Gould of Hybrid Audio Solutions in Charleston, South Carolina. She currently lives in Savannah, Georgia with her beloved husband, Andrew along with their 3 crazy kids, Carter, MaKinley and Mattox.
