Care to introduce yourself to our readers?!
Hi Everyone! I’m Stacey Renee, and I’m an indie rock artist, singer, songwriter, performer from Thornhill Ontario, currently living in Toronto! www.StaceyReneeMusic.com
Tell us a bit about your music & writing style.
I’ve always been influenced by the rock stars of our present and past. I grew up listening to classic rock, 80s & 90s, and you can definitely hear that in the music I write & release today. Some of my favourite artist at the moment to draw inspiration from when writing are Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Elle King, Paramore etc. All of the kick butt, take charge, women with a message!
Do you have any upcoming shows? How would you explain your live performance?
We’re currently booking my bands summer tour to promote my upcoming album, so a full list of dates will be on my website / facebook / instagram shortly. Here are some of our early release upcoming tour dates below:
Feb 18th – Muskoka Brewery
June 11th – Rosedale Springfest
June 23rd & 25th Pickering Village JAM
July 6th – Belleville Waterfront Festival
July 15th – Wasaga Beach
July 27th, 28th, 29th – Beaches International Streetfest
Aug 12th – Stouffville Ribfest
If you haven’t seen us perform before, come on out, and get ready for a high energy, good time! My band and I have been performing together for the last 4 years and I think it definitely shows when we are on stage because we have the greatest time rockin’ out together (and with the crowd), and that really resonates with our audiences.
If you were to suggest only one song, which would it be?
If I had to pick one, I would say have a listen to my latest single Run This. It has just been released on iTunes, and is currently in rotation on radio stations across the GTA!
Who are your current favourite Canadian Bands / artist?!
That’s a tough one, there are so many! I’m always so impressed with our Canadian bands / artists! Alessia Cara is killing it around the world right now! The Weeknd, Hedley, Mother Mother! Too many to mention! Do yourself a favour everyone and get into Canadian music, because there is truly so much to discover, and so many amazing talents unknown!
