STACEY w/ Raven Shields @ The Drake Hotel 1/7/2016

On Thursday, I headed out to my first show of the year with STACEY and Raven Shields.

Raven Shields kicked the night off with a mixture of indie folk and soulful pop songs backed by a full band. One of my favourite moments was when she covered Jenny Lewis’ “She’s Not Me”. Her own songs like the stand out”Badlands” were sassy.

STACEY performed alone by the piano providing atmosphere with projection roses and a lit candle. Vintage movies filled a projected screen. Her dress was also decked out in roses. The intimacy worked well with the ballads from her self-titled EP. She commanded the audience with her sultry voice and piano melodies. There aren’t many recorded songs out there of STACEY yet, but she ended the night with a promise of more to come.
