  • RIR RADIO GUEST - Stacey Hampton (Singer/Songwriter)

    in Music

    Interview with Singer/Songwriter -  Stacey Hampton is a female solo artist basing most of her music in folk rock with a touch of country, a hint of bluegrass and a sprinkle of funk.


    I was born in Downey, California but raised in Kansas City. I started playing music at a young age until I was introduced to athletics. I sought after a soccer career and even made it to the level of playing semi-pro. I picked up the guitar my sophomore year of college and also began to write a lot of poetry at the time. Suddenly I found myself wanting to combine the two. I have been playing and writing music for about 18 years now, and want to share it with the world!

    Soul and R&B singer Noel Gourdin (Gor-Deen) emerged on the music scene with his number one hit song “The River” which stayed on the Urban AC charts at number one for 15 weeks! Noel’s childhood was not a traditional one; he was born in Brockton, MA but spent his summers with family Pachuta, Mississippi. The result is a man who is city to the heart but southern to the soul! Noel scored a deal with Sony Music at age 24, his first exposure to the vocal arts came in church and he was introduced to the larger audience of soul music by his father (who introduced him to the classics, such as Otis Redding) and his brother (who turned him on to the sounds of new jack swing). Noel is influenced by classic soul as well as the contemporary sounds of R&B and hip-hop. Making his music is a seamless blend of each genre. “Listening to so much music from so many different eras really helped me put my style together,” explains the gifted singer- songwriter
