"i hope you're ready to never be good enough..."

usually the business of discovering new music (especially female singers) is tim's job. he's had a full plate lately though and i couldn't let this one go without a nod from the ship. fans of imogen heap and feist should give stacy clark five minutes of their time. or better yet, go straight to her myspace or itunes and just buy apples and oranges. i rarely tell readers to just go buy something, but that's just how compelling and instantly likeable stacy clark's music is.

stacy began in buffalo, new york, but according to her on her website, she now lives in cali (thus the title of her new cd). stacy's music can best be described as a blend of imogen's soulful and catchy songs, psapp's unique background beats/noises and feist's crystal clear vocals.

we'll try to get her into the cafe, but who knows. based on the rumor mill, sounds like she's shopping for a label right now so she might just be playing showcases in l.a. seems like everyone's a big deal these days...

ragardless, go buy her apples and oranges before it gets snatched up by some label that wants to re-release it and pretend like they made a good album.

I love her cd! It is one of my favorite releases of the year! It would be sweet if you could get her to play the cafe to. I wouldn't miss that for the world.

Wow, you weren't kidding. It's artists like this that make me wish I had a credit card to get stuff online with.
After Christmas I'm planning on a graywhale run though.
