Biography

Featuring the crystalline vocals of Stacy King, Sucré write the kind of dreamlike pop songs that get lodged into your head before the very first chorus even kicks in. Rounded out by Stacy’s husband, Darren King, on drums, and multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Larson, the trio’s debut album, A Minor Bird, is an enchanting blend of ‘60s psychedelia and the intimacy of ‘70s singer/songwriters. Stacy’s voice proves to be at times a whisper of mist, and at others a tumultuous ocean that flawlessly weaves across infinite landscapes of strings, horns, and percussion on each of the album’s 11 tracks.

Upon hearing something as deliberate and intricate as Sucre’s music, it is hard to believe that the three began working together without any intention of actually becoming a band. “During my first holiday visit to Darren’s family in Missouri, we went to Jeremy’s studio and just for fun, recorded a cover of “Silver Springs” my favorite song by Stevie Nicks. After that I began sending Jeremy unfinished demos and he started turning them into these beautiful pop symphonies. About three songs in I realized we had something special and that we had to make a record of it.” Spinner calls it “pop music of the highest order.”

There’s a certain whimsical feeling to the way Stacy’s vocals mesh with Darren and Jeremy’s instrumentation. Stacy explains her songwriting process: “I suppose I don’t have a standard way of writing, but a lot of times the songs start with me writing a few chords, a melody, and then little hints of lyrics. Sometimes Jeremy will send me a piece of music and I’ll record myself as I’m writing the melody on top of the music, and then I’ll listen back to it right away to see if I liked anything.
