Hear a Cinematic Single from STACEY–Stream “Trouble Is”


STACEY is self-aware of her sound. In a poem, the Toronto-based singer-songwriter describes her sultry song “Trouble Is” as “a modern ode to a drama-infused Gatsby soirée…à la 50 Shades of Grey.” As piano and strings swell, STACEY’s vocals rise to meet them:

to whom it may concern,

Trouble Is…

the darkest side of my upcoming EP

a modern ode to a drama-infused Gatsby soirée

cavalier acknowledgement of personal patterns

elusive flirtation & romantic exhaustion

à la 50 Shades of Grey

lyrics that tumble out in a masochistic confessional


cinematic with ominous choral synths

cascading above the marching procession

one vocal take

an anthem for a slow motion Bond woman

if she ever sang

whispers in your ear

of suspenseful observation

penned by STACEY

produced by Derek Hoffman & Alan Day

mixed by Juno-winner Jason Dufour
