Mini Bio (1)
Award-winning vocalist, Stacy Sullivan, has appeared in venues around the world, from The Crazy Coqs in London to The Cafe Carlyle in New York and the Cinegrill in Hollywood. Her six albums, including her latest "Stranger in a Dream" (Harbinger Records) and "It's a Good Day: A Tribute to Miss Peggy Lee" (LML Music), can be heard regularly on The Jonathon Channel, Seriously Sinatra, and radio stations across the country.
Theatrical performances include "Christine" in the Yeston/Kopit "Phantom" (Los Angeles Premiere,) "Rosebud" in "The Mystery of Edwin Drood" (West Coast Premiere, with George Rose and Karen Morrow,) and Toby Bluth's "Babes in Toyland" (World Premiere,with Robert Morse.) Live performances include Cabaret Conventions in New York and San Francisco, the Pasadena Pops Orchestra w/John Raitt, The Knoxville Symphony w/Lucas Richman, and Lyrics and Lyricists at the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan.
Sullivan grew up in Oklahoma, the seventh of eight children in a wildly musical family, where she began performing in venues across the south and mid-west at the age of five. Graduating Cum Laude from Tulsa University with a degree in Music, she left home to follow her musical and acting dreams in Los Angeles.
She appeared in numerous film, commercial, and television projects in Hollywood, (memorably creating the role of Sissel Jorgensen on the award-winning series, Christy, starring Tyne Daly) but career took a backseat to children for many years, leading her to keep the musical drive alive by recording five critically acclaimed albums.
With a move to New York in 2012, career dreams took flight in the creation of "It's a Good Day-A Tribute to Miss Peggy Lee," the live show and recording that would change her life. Stephen Holden, of The New York Times has referred to her performances as "Spellbinding," Darkly Sultry," and "Compelling." Clive Davis of The Times (London) wrote, "A commanding, willowy presence, Sullivan captures that rare combination of vulnerability and worldliness."
"On the Air," the show she wrote and performs for Piano Jazz creator, Marian McPartland, caught the eye (and ear) of legendary radio personality and music connoisseur Jonathan Schwartz, who presented it to New York City at WNYC's "The Greene Space," which led to a run at The York Theatre in Manhattan and the recording "Stranger in a Dream." The Wall Street Journal called it "Cabaret for Thinking People," and The New York Times raved, "Sullivan transports you to a twilight zone of wistful reflection that recalls the dreamier side of Peggy Lee."
"Since You've Asked," her most personal live musical offering, is a meteorologically themed family history spanning several decades, described by The New York Times in April 2015 as "Thrilling," "Audacious," "Spellbinding," and "Stretching cabaret into previously unexplored territory."
With "A Night at the Troubadour," Sullivan once again dives into uncharted waters with an extraordinary musical journey dedicated to Elton John and David Ackles, two of her heroes who met and performed at the legendary rock and roll club on the fateful night of John's North American debut on August 25th, 1970.
Sullivan joined forces with Todd Murray to create "Separate Ways," a thought provoking, sometimes humorous and always musically entertaining look at the very human quandary of "should I stay or should I go?" "Home for the Holidays", is their holiday offering which weaves a musical tapestry of traditional fare such as "I'll be Home for Christmas" and "Silent Night" with more contemporary selections such as Stephen Schwartz and Alan Menken's "Cold Enough to Snow," and Joni Mitchell's "River."
Numerous awards, including The MAC Award (2015) for "Major Artist," The Nightlife Award (2014) for "Best Female Vocalist," The Bistro Award, and The Lamott/Friedman Award for "Best Recording" (It's a Good Day-A Tribute to Miss Peggy Lee) give her the opportunity to tour the world with her band, as well as in a duo setting with Piano Jazz Host and Jazz Pianist, Jon Weber.
