Stacy started singing at the age of 5 in Zweibruken Germany at an Army show and after her first standing ovation there was no looking back. Fast forward to the present, with her diverse background she continues to give you toe tapping, head bobbing feel good music that crosses all barriers. Since she began her quest of the blues she has been working non-stop bridging the age gap on the blues circuit and importing fans from other genres. In her short time on the blues circuit she has shared the stage with blues greats Kenny Neal, Grammy Award Winner Sugar Blue, Guitar Legend Bobby Parker, Memphis Gold, Lil Dave Thompson (R.I.P.) Ronnie Baker Brooks, Grammy Nominated Billy Branch, Eddie Shaw, Willie "Big Eyes" Smith (R.I.P.), and Bob Stroger just to name a few. Her arrangements keep the integrity of traditional Chicago, Delta Blues while adding a spruce of rejuvenation.
Last year 9 July, The Stacy Brooks Band competed and won The Battle of The Bands at The Sedalia Blues Festival in Big Island Virginia. They competed in Memphis at the International Blues Challenge in January 2012.
The highly anticipated Love Peace and The Blues Cd was released in September 2011 to wonderful reviews and airplay. Bluesmen Kenny Neal and Memphis Gold are co-producers of the Cd along with Stacy. The CD includes a duet with Kenny Neal and she wrote & arranged 12 of the 14 songs. The CD also includes German lyrics to pay tribute to her German background.
Stacy is a multi award nominated artist with nominations for:
2007 for New Artist of the Year

2011 for Love, Peace & The Blues for Best Blues Recording
