Stacie Collins :: Sometimes You Gotta…


Stacie Collins is getrouwd met Al Collins, bassist van Jason & The Scorchers. Geen wonder dat niet alleen Al maar ook Scorchers-stergitarist Warner E. Hodges te horen is op Stacie’s nieuwe CD Sometimes You Gotta… Producer is Dan Baird, die we vooral kennen van de Georgia Satellites. Het geheel klinkt alsof in plaats van Jason nu Wanda Jackson de baas is van The Scorchers. Countryrock met ballen, fanatieke gitaarduels, veel uptempo nummers en af en toe een ballad. Opwindende én opzwepende muziek. 

Sometimes Ya Gotta… is the title of Nashville’s rockvoice STACIE COLLINS’ new album and it doesn’t need a lot of imagination to know why it carries this title after getting just a short auditory impression – sometimes ya gotta (rock out bad-ass), sometimes ya gotta (take the blues and nail it down to the floor), sometimes ya gotta (sing your heart out and blow the harp like the devil) or simply: sometimes ya gotta (make such a fine record like this one)! Yes, that is what it could be called, considering the qualities of this Powerhouse performer and her top of the line, vigorous rocking studio-band. When it comes down to rich Roots Rock with southern Boogie, Blues and some country influences, Stacy Collins is already a well known name in the States, with Sometimes Ya Gotta… she is about to conquer the Rock’n Roll hearts in Europe by storm as well!

Ever since being a kid Stacie wanted to become a singer, but only when she met her now husband, the musician Al Collins (bass player with Jason & the Scorchers) something like a real music career was beginning to form. When they got together in the 90’s, she says that she couldn’t write songs, sing or even play the Blues Harp. But he encouraged her to go her own way and ambitiously work on her goals and dreams. So she did and on her self-titled debut record, released 2000, Stacie already had quite something to show for. At that time the couple was still living in Cleveland, Ohio and the music, by the way, even back then Collins/Collins material, had a strong county character, somewhat like an Emmylou Harris up to a Kelly Willis. 

This changed in the following years right along with their move to Nashville. The new focus became Southern Roots Rock with blends of Blues, Boogie, Rock’n Roll, Country Rock and – to use the all-embracing term – the ruff and dirty side of Americana!
