Stacy began singing at the age of 11, forming an accapella vocal harmony group with friends using 3 and 4 part harmonies. This led them to win talent shows and to appear on BBC television to showcase the use of harmonies as well as appearing on the local ITV news. Shortly after a few vocal performances, they chose to pick up instruments and create an all female rock band. This is where Stacy began to play lead guitar. As well as this, she has tried her hand at bass guitar, drums and piano.   This is where Onyx began its life and went on to win the well known 'Rock the Castle' competition. This gave them the opportunity to record orignally penned songs at UB40's recording studio in Birmingham where Ali Campbell listened to thier music. Onyx toured a lot and got to play at Ronnie Scott's to round off the 'Rock the Castle' tour they were part of.   Onyx were recommended by some well known artists such as Roy Wood, who invited them to support him on his xmas shows on two occasions. They were also championed by Pete Boot, drummer of legendary rockers 'Budgie', who at one point played for the girls when they changed drummer and became a good friend. This led them to meet Mick Hughes, the sound engineer for Metallica. This is where they were offered a contract but the group soon folded after the departure of their drummer.   After a couple of years, two of the original Onyx members joined forces again to create 'HotRoxx'. This again would become an all girl rock band, focusing on the Glam Rock scene and heavily influenced by bands such as Kiss.  As a result they became involved in supporting 'Dressed to Kill', the number one Kiss tribute on tour. Both Onyx and HotRoxx appeared on local radio stations with their original music, a few of these being penned by Stacy herself.   After a few line up changes, Stacy decided to leave HotRoxx to follow a solo career. She has taken her band scene experience and moulded it into her solo performance which has led to her being know as 'The Rock Chick' and most recently as the 'Queen of Rock'.    Stacy burst onto the solo scene as she tries not to follow the usual trends and has carved her own unique style that is completely different and accepts any challenge thrown to her! She still acknowledges her rock roots, playing the guitar and tailoring a rock set that can be performed exclusively.   Once she went solo it became obvious that audiences made comparisons vocally to the legend Cher, who herself is somewhat of a rock chick. The power and finesse of Stacy's vocals have led her to create a tribute show to the female icon.  Her tribute 'Cherished' has taken the Midlands by storm, earning 3 awards for her tribute show in the last 6 months! The show has been taken abroad and toured Marbella and La Cala in Spain and Argassi and Kalamaki in Zante where both Stacy's Cher and Pink show went down a storm and has had rave reviews. Stacy also brought her Cher act to the TV for a programme called 'Faking Famous' where she competed to be the best tribute act against Elvis and Barry White.   After the freedom of being a solo artist, Stacy felt ready to once again be part of a band. She was approachd by a couple of members of Fred Zeppelin and asked to join forces with them on a new project, a female fronted Queen tribute band! She has now become 'Freda Mercury' and 'She Will Rock You' have been entertaining audiences since Dec 2011. They have also won an award in that short space of time! The band have already played some big gigs and appeared on BBC radio, including playing for the 10,000 people of Wolvohampton for the Queen's Jubilee with the guitarist playing 'God Save The Queen' lifted high above the crowds in the air.   Stacy has recently been involved in song writing again, working with song writer Dave Hutchinson as a demo singer for major labels and artists. She has also sung backing vocals for major European rock band 'Magnum' on their up and coming new album 'The 13th Day'. ...
