Stacie Collins

+ Roaming Son

Harmonica blowin’ hell-cat STACIE COLLINS is a blazing a trail travelled by few women. Sporting a hard-core honky-tonk wail while backed by a slam-bang rock 'n' roll band, she weds Stones fried rock-n-roll, gut bucket blues and vintage honky-tonk. Based in Nashville, TN, she tours the US, Scandinavia and Europe regularly and has even spawned a Japanese “Stacie Collins” tribute band.

Produced by rock legend Dan Baird (The Georgia Satellites / Homemade Sin), her 2007 release, THE LUCKY SPOT became a fan favorite and received airplay world wide. A ten song, southern rockin', harp howlin' blues romp, had this record been released twenty or thirty years ago it would have sounded as natural on '70s FM radio alongside ZZ Top and The Rolling Stones as it does next to contemporary rockers like the Drive By Truckers or Blackberry Smoke.

Appearing in a host of articles, one writer wrote... “Stacie is a bad-ass gritty babe who takes no shit, honed her barstool feminism in road houses and honky-tonks and wails on a mean blues harp”. Another one credits her with being a leader in the Outlaw Country movement stirring in Nashville boasting “…Collins shows those plastic gals what real music is supposed to sound like”.

Her current release, SOMETIMES YA GOTTA (the second produced by Baird) hit the streets in November 2010. Made possible in part by partnering with her fans and Kickstarter.com, SOMETIMES YA GOTTA is packed with 12 tracks of giddy-up rattle-n-roll and boasts an all-star line-up of players including the guitar work of Warner E. Hodges (Jason & The Scorchers / Homemade Sin), Eric ‘EBO’ Borash (Radney Foster) and Dan Baird along with the rhythm section of Jimmy Lester (Los Los Straitjackets / Webb Wilder) on drums and Stacie's rocker husband / writing partner, Al Collins (Jason and The Scorchers) on bass.

Armed with a new album that is sure to rate as her best work yet, a live show that makes you say, “damn girl!” and a band that makes you want to be in a band (and if you are in a band, makes ya want to be in a better one), Stacie Collins is sittin’ in a sling-shot and the arm is drawn back tight. This is one artist you won’t want to miss if you like edgy, down-home and home-grown.
