When bassist Stacy McMichael walks into a room, the room knows. Whether it’s her bleach-blonde hair, piercing eyes, or the fact that she’s carrying a bass is up to the viewer. Stephanie gets the scoop on Stacy’s history as a performer, beginnings as a musician, and discovers they have more in common than either of the two originally knew.
A natural educator, Stacy drops knowledge on overcoming the symptoms of anxiety or nervousness, and what it’s like to both celebrate and diminish being a woman in the music business. Must we advertise that we are girls? Can we simply say “I’m a serious musician?” Why not advertise the music and show up in killer shoes and earrings anyway
Stacy McMichael is currently playing in the musical SIX, running now through August 4th at The Yard at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater.
