Little Glass Houses
Stacy K is a new talent on the Minnesota music scene who has a brand new EP called "Little Glass Houses". Stacy has a disarmingly mature voice. She blends (like many good songwriters) a keen eye for observation, elements of her own personal experience and a vivid imagination. It's never transparent how that division breaks down, but her expressive pipes keep your ear glued to the story line. The places and elements that she references are always unexpected and a bit unusual, but that's part of the charm. Journaling began as young as 12 or 13 and that discipline has paid off in canny and clever songwriting that is wise beyond her years. When something intrigues Stacy, she writes about it in journal and in song. In the latter, it's never cliché or repackaged. It's fresh and incisive. With her eye for detail, good writing instincts and that expressive voice, there would appear to be many more good records down the line for Stacy K. -John Ziegler, Duluth News Tribune.
