ARTIST: Stacey Randol
SONG: “Battled Feet”
BIRTHDATE: December 12th, 1986
BIRTHPLACE: Decatur, IL
AMBITIONS: To make music my whole life and to see as much of the world as possible.
TURN-OFFS: cockiness, negativity, apathy
TURN-ONS: humor, creativity, adventurousness, humbleness
DREAM GIG: I love outdoor venues. One in particular being Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO. It is gorgeous.
IF I HAD MORE TIME, I WOULD: take more road trips!
MY NIGHTLY RITUAL BEFORE BED: I usually enjoy mixing up my evenings, but one of my favorite ways to unwind after a long day is to write with a glass of vino.
THE BEST WAY TO GET A MAN’S ATTENTION: Confidence and a smile should do it.
MY 5 FAVORITE FUNNYMEN: Robin Williams, Jim Carrey, Jimmy Fallon, Richard Pryor, and Chevy Chase
SOMEONE I WANT TO MEET AND WHY: Paul Simon. I admire his entire song collection–from the beautiful melodies and balance of Simon and Garfunkel to his solo career where rhythm is the focus. He is my absolute favorite.
I WROTE THIS SONG: When looking at my gnarly feet. It’s true. Like many women, I wear shoes that end up causing a lot of pain. I ended up comparing the sacrifice of these shoes to relationships girls stay in even though they get hurt many times.
