Lacey aspires to expand and challenge the perception of the harp as a strictly classical instrument. Though rooted in classical training, she has developed a modern-folk style in which she sings while accompanying herself on her electric harp. Achieving balance between the two styles has developed her into a multidimensional performer and sets her apart as a versatile and expressive artist.
Lacey was dubbed "Syracuse's Irish Melody" by the Syracuse Post Standard, has been a featured performer on their website twice, and was highlighted in the weekend edition of the newspaper. She played in many performing groups in the region and loved collaborating with other local musicians. One of these groups, Duo L'Adour, of which Lacey was a founding member with Martha Grener, was nominated for a SAMMY Award for "Best Other Recording" in 2013 and received the SAMMY Award for "Best Other Recording" in 2014.
Lacey studied at the Eastman School of Music under Kathleen Bride, the Celebration Barn Theatre under Deborah Henson-Conant and Karen Montanaro, and Missouri State University under Darice Augustson.
Lacey is pleased to present all four recordings available for sale, including SAMMY Award winning album: Dare to Dream, on her music page.
