Stacy Jones - 'Love is Everywhere'
Review by Victoria Scott & Staff
Stacy Jones' “Love is Everywhere” is a sweet blues-rock song. The song comes in with electric blues guitar and drums creating a grooving jam. Before the mid-section, the guitar picks up and a choir in the background illuminates the song. The rhythm sections cruise through the grooves, getting your body moving.
"Love is Everywhere" has great instrumentation with Rick Bowen; drums, Tome Jones; bass, Jeff Menteer; electric guitar, and Stacy Jones on keys. The band comes together flawlessly. You can tell they have musical chemistry and really feel the music passionately. In the break to the end, there is an intense guitar solo along with powerful vocals repeating, "Love is Everywhere."
Throughout the song the theme is that love heals. Stacy Jones wrote “Love Is Everywhere” in the wake of the Orlando nightclub massacre and before the annual Seattle Pride festival. The song is a declaration and tribute to the fallen and to those who stand up for human rights and the power of love.
During the last chorus, “There’s no room for hate anywhere, only room for love everywhere, love everywhere,” Stacy vocalizes over the drums, guitar, and bass and you can truly hear her expression and emotion.
Stacy Jones has amazing blues chops as a singer and songwriter. Her voice is soulful, deep, and passionate. Like the title of the song, when Stacy sings and her band plays, you can hear that "love is everywhere" - it is in every note sung and every note played.
