Talon Winery Logo

The skateboarding Tomboy from Jersey kicked off her start in music as the front woman for the pop rock band, “The Best Week Ever”. Gaining momentum, Lacey wrote and toured with the band, opening for global names like Gavin DeGraw and Bon Jovi, and playing stages as big as Metlife Stadium in her home state of New Jersey. Lacey remembers, “I’ve never felt more comfortable during a performance than I did on that giant stage in front of thousands of people. I knew right then I was doing what I was supposed to be doing”. With the release of her debut solo EP, “Songbird”, Lacey knew country music is where she ultimately belonged. The stories that are told in country music are the stories people have lived; they are real. Bringing her pop and rock energy, Lacey’s focus is to tell her story for other people to connect their stories to. After relocating to Nashville, TN, Lacey quickly fell more in love with the style, and began writing with experts in the genre. Through these writer connections, the small town girl has gone on to play historic Nashville venues like The Bluebird Cafe more than 5 times within one year.
