Stacy Gabel – ‘Stir Crazy’

Stacy Gabel has made the step from behind the scenes to centre stage, moving from her position as a promo producer and writer at Nickelodeon, to in front of the camera as a creative. A native of Eastern Pennsylvania, Stacy is a bit of a local icon, and has won two Global Music Awards for Lyricist, Song, and Musician, and the Lehigh Valley Music Awards of Fans Choice Award, Discovered Artist, Outstanding Female Artist, All-Around Performer, and Best Song, in 2017, 2018, and 2019. Phew! Seems like Stacy made the right choice to move to the front of the stage!

Her latest single, ‘Stir Crazy’ reminds us in her “Broadway-meets-pop” lighthearted style, not to take ourselves too seriously. The clip shines a comedic light on the trivial day to day activity we might be going through at home during these long days of isolation. We make that incredibly long journey from the bedroom to the loungeroom, every single day, wearing the same oversized pyjamas each time. Stacy states that the track is basically a cabin-fever response “inspired by a whole lot of nothingness going on in my life”. We see her fight with her dog over the last slice of pizza, and trying frantically to keep up with the constant notifications on social media, all the while never once allowing her anticipation to falter that there are better days ahead. She reminds us, despite the separation and chaos, to nonetheless be kind to one another – a lesson to be remembered when the pandemic days are over.
