Stace Brandt has listened for a long time, ear to the ground, constantly searching for what makes a song tick. After spending five years in Burlington, Vermont writing songs, collaborating, and playing live to shape her sound, Stace returned to the Boston area where she grew up and jumped into a new scene. Understanding that emotions are inherently at odds, Stace’s music stays honest through its contradictions: conflict, struggle, heartbreak and ecstasy swim together, always churning. Melodically, Stace’s intuition never fails to pack a punch: soul-driven lyrics flow into R&B inflected hooks. Her guitar, minimal and percussive, provides a rhythmic backbone for her smoldering vocals. Powerfully reflective and sentimental, Stace’s music wavers between intimacy and solitude, between living recklessly and intense self-reflection.
