2013 Female Vocalist of the Year from the Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs, Stacy Sullivan has appeared in venues around the world, from The Brasserie Zedel in London to The Cafe Carlyle in New York. She has recorded five albums for the LML Music label, including her latest, “It’s a Good Day,” winner of the 2013 Lamott/Friedman Award and voted one of the Top Ten Recordings of 2012 by Talkin’ Broadway. Stacy can also be heard regularly on Sirius Radio’s “Siriously Sinatra,” and NPR’s “Piano Jazz Rising Stars.”
Critics are raving about her new show, a tribute to Miss Peggy Lee. Clive Davis, of The London Times wrote, “A commanding, willowy presence, Sullivan captures that rare combination of worldliness and vulnerability.” And, from The Times Square Chronicles, “It only happens sometimes. A performer who can captivate an audience on many levels: voice, phrasing, acting, persona, sensuality, physical beauty, and also ‘swing.’”
Stacy’s theatrical performances include Christine in the Yeston/Kopit “Phantom” (Los Angeles Premiere), Rosabud in “The Mystery of Edwin Drood” (West Coast Premiere, George Rose and Karen Morrow), and Toby Bluth’s “Babes in Toyland” (World Premiere, Robert Morse), seven Cabaret Conventions in New York and San Francisco, the Pasadena Pops Orchestra with John Raitt, the Knoxville Symphony, and “Lyrics and Lyricists” at the 92nd Street Y, with Andrea Marcovicci.
The seventh of eight children, Stacy grew up performing family concerts in Oklahoma with her gifted siblings and mother, Elizabeth Sullivan. Graduating cum laude with her degree in Music from Tulsa University, Stacy was fortunate to study with famed voice teacher, Laven Sowell, becoming the soprano soloist in Hayden’s “Teresa Mass” and the Mozart “Requiem,” among others. Film and television credits include a few movies, numerous sit-coms, soap operas, and commercials, but her proudest television moment was creating the role of Sissel Jorgensen on the award-winning television series, “Christy,” with Tyne Daly.
