Stacia Thiel is a classically trained opera singer, born and raised in rural Wisconsin on an eclectic mix of Dixieland Jazz, 70’s rock, and Barbershop harmonies. She earned a master’s degree in opera performance from Washington University in St. Louis while frequently making the five-hour trek to Nashville to record demos of original songs with session players and band mates. A move to New York City to study with vocal pedagogue Cornelius Reid led to countless adventures creatively and personally. With her wide range of talents in varied musical genres, Stacia can be found performing the soprano solo in Fauré’s Requiem with chamber orchestra or kicking off her record release with a live concert at the Montclair Social Club in New Jersey. Through searing vocal lines, captivating melodies, and sharp-witted lyrics she explores the raw emotions that connect us all in her debut solo album Straight to the Middle, which was released in March 2019.
