Local Buzz Cut this week is from Sin Shake Sin with the track Trendsetter.
He plays all the instruments, writes the songs, sings, records, produces and mixes the project himself.
Sin Shake Sin is a fresh new experience in indie/alt Rock. The lyrics are fun, raw, anthemic, relatable, but also historically and socially conscious, politically critical, and most of all inspiring for those who look around and want more for their generation (and the next). The music is a bold and unique mix of industrial rock with underlying pop sensibilities, textures and rhythms. The beats are swampy and infectious.
The sound is as if Nine Inch Nails, Awolnation, Muse, and the White Stripes took the music director of HBO's True Blood, moved to a swamp in the south and recorded a super catchy "pop/rock electro-swamp" album. Part of Stacy's unique sound is that he uses an eight string electric guitar to achieve his ultra low dirty swampy sound.
The concept - It's about awareness. Intelligence. The power of information vs. the power of misinformation. Celebrating who we are as well as who we are not. It's about having the strength to stand up for what you believe in - big or small.
His previous rock project, Lovers and Liars, was signed to Universal Republic in 2010.
He has worked as a studio musician for Grand Ole Opry legends and now writes and produces for artists around the world.

Stacy most recently won the 2013 Hollywood Music in Media Award for his co-write with Debra Gussin on the song "Do U Miss The Heat?".
