Singer-songwriters are definitely a bunch of brave souls. In their purest form, these musical acts consist of one person with nothing but their instrument of choice and a pocketful of personal experience. They walk on stage and pour out the contents of their heart and soul on a crowd mostly populated with strangers.
Emily Stuckey is one such brave soul. Stuckey regularly goes through the motions as she frequents venues in the Mobile Bay area. Whether performing full shows or leading an open mic night, her original work has earned her many fans in the area. Anthony Crawford of Sugarcane Jane/Willie Sugarcapps fame happens to be one of them.
When Stuckey began laying the groundwork for a debut, Crawford stepped forward to take on production duties. Together, the duo have created Stuckey’s debut self-titled debut. “You’re No Good” is the first single from the four-song release. With the single, Stuckey mixes soft purring vocals with emotional vocal overloads that demonstrate her passion for the craft.
