From Our Magazine
One thing many female singer-songwriters have in common is that they all seem to disappear when they have a child. Taking time off is to be expected, but time flies and before they know it a decade has already passed since they last performed or recorded new music. New Jersey native Stacie Rose did not put her career on hold. In fact, she found herself in a burst of creativity, leading to a complete album in 2013 written from the end of her pregnancy to her son’s infancy. Rose continues to move forward with the recent release of her self-titled album.

Makin Waves Record Roundup with Nalani & Sarina and Elk City
I usually can tell within the first 30 seconds of a song whether I want to write about a new band or one I’ve never heard before. I’ll forward through about four songs until something strikes me, and if it doesn’t by then, I move on.
