BIO

As a classically trained pianist and a homegrown church choir singer, Lacey used the skills she learned over the years to craft her own songs with driving melodies and a modern hint of soul. After playing in countless coffee shops, bars, restaurants, breweries, and sidewalks, Lacey independently released her solo live EP, "Will Play for Coffee" in April 2017. Eventually, she worked her way up to open for acts including Stephen Kellogg, Eric Hutchinson & the Believers, Rufus Wainwright, Mason Jennings, & Reina del Cid. As she built traction and a steady fanbase, Lacey received full Kickstarter support that allowed her to record her debut full-length, full band album at Creation Audio in Minneapolis. The album is set to release on Saturday, April 13th, 2019.

Fans of Lacey’s music also enjoy: Regina Spektor, Sara Bareilles, Julien Baker, Brandi Carlile, Ingrid Michaelson, Phox, Lawrence

behind the album

“Where to begin. This album, ‘Over Again,’ is something I’ve been dreaming of creating for as long as I can remember. I had no idea where to start, or how to make an album, but there was no doubt in my mind that it would be a huge step towards my goal career of becoming a full-time touring musician. While I juggled the struggle of balancing a day job and playing cover gigs here and there, I decided to use my two weeks of built-up PTO to follow one of my favorite musicians on tour; I wanted to get a tiny glimpse of what it might be like to do this music thing. The trip was a wake up call and reminded me all ‘over again’ why I’m chasing the stage. When I came back home, I started writing. Two EPs, hundreds of gigs, countless notebooks later…I was ready to create my debut LP. The lyrics tell stories of growth, perseverance, heartbreak, motivation, and more. I pulled 12 phenomenal musicians into the studio with me to bring the songs to life. I can’t wait to share these songs with you. Thank you for following my journey!”
