“The Evolution to Living in Truth”
Stacye Branché Brings “Alternative Soul” Full Circle
Evolution is a gradual process in which something changes into a different and usually more complex form. Nowhere is that more evident than on Stacye Branché’s third disc, “The Evolution to Living in Truth.”
Capitalizing on her silky soprano, a three octaves diapason, Branché builds on the “Alternative Soul” hybrid -- a fusion of rhythm and blues, pop and jazz --- illustrated on her 2001 album “I Believe,” and illuminated in 2004, on the follow-up “For the Man I Love.”
The lush melodies and production on “Truth” were guided by Branché’s classically-trained voice and fully evolved during live sessions with some of the most highly-sought after musicians, including Rob Bacon on guitar, jazz bassist Alex Al and noted percussionist Timbali Cornwell. Further proving her melodic prowess, Branché also introduces a distinctive meld on the track “I Was Thinkin’ Maybe,” a collaboration with music producer DJ Khalil of the hip-hop duo Self Scientific.
“This album embodies the time I’ve spent growing as a person, as a writer and now producer ,” said Stacye. “The tracks are a kaleidoscope, offering my fans a true sense of myself, of my evolution.”
Since her last album, Stacye released two singles through Expansion Records in the United Kingdom, “Inside Me,” in 2004, and a remake of the Sergio Mendez classic “The Real Thing,” in 2005, as part of the label’s Soul Togetherness compilation series.
