Successfully mixing modern folk lyricism with straight-ahead pop/rock arrangements and an americana sensibility, Stephanie Brickey has come up with a distinct sound of her own. She calls on her diverse musical influences to embellish the traditional folk song and to keep the crowd moving with timeless, stand-out rock performances. Brickey has the ability to grind out a crowd-pleasing, high-octane rocker and then follow it with an irresistible lullaby so hauntingly beautiful it may leave you in tears. Brickey's vocals complement the songs in a way that seems to accentuate the instrumental accompaniment rather than overshadow it, with a voice that's somewhere between Margo Timmins and Linda Thompson. Brickey has been highly visible on the St. Louis music scene for some time performing as solo artist, as a member of SLIM (along with Lynn Reif and Mary Alice Wood) and as the frontperson for A Room Away. After taking the better part of 2 years off, Brickey is performing to support her upcoming solo album, Firelight, which was released in January, 2005. Brickey has put together a band consisting of St. Louis music scene veterans Mike Fitzsimmons (also of The Homewreckers) on lead guitar, Dave Brickey on bass and Paul Grellner on drums. The band is as versitile as Brickey, driving the set's frantic rockers with a hard hitting fever, as well as adding tasteful shape to Brickey's acoustic ballads. Stephanie Brickey's sound is infectious and unique. Her songs are timeless, smart and alluring. Listen carefully...
