“I Wait” EP is the debut record by UK folk artist Stacey McMullen. Stacey’s music is a complex mix of fingerstyle guitar, raw storytelling enveloped between sophisticated playing and powerful vocals, influenced by a combination of Celtic, blues, samba, flamenco and middle eastern styles.
Title track “I Wait” is a powerful song about unrequited love with toxic undertones followed by “Lines In The Sand”, a simple and yet to the point description of life as a refugee. Baby Girl follows and is a universally understood song capturing the problem of romantic timing. The record finishes with “I Know” which speaks to the issue of repressed masculinity and the darker side of mental health.
“I Wait” is out on Wire And Wool Records on 9th June 2017 followed by a free entry launch event at Nottingham Contemporary on 10th June.
