For as long as singer/songwriter Staci Frenes can remember, music has been her saving grace and the unmistakable key to self-discovery. A lifelong love of words and music has led Staci to cultivate songs and stories into something strong and beautiful and brave. This UC-Berkeley graduate, mom and former English teacher has enjoyed successes she hadn’t dared to dream. Her acoustic folk-pop songs have inspired not only audiences at her concerts all over the country, but millions of viewers on major network shows such as The Biggest Loser, America’s Next Top Model, All My Children and Nashville as well as in nationally released feature films.
On Today’s Show We Discuss:
- Staci’s newest CD Unpathed Waters, Undreamed Shores.
- The story behind the hauntingly contradictory song “Storms” (it is fantastic)
- The passion behind her book Flourish
- How her life was changed by an invitation by her P.E teacher to a Young Life Christian Camp
- Her questioning of the “goodness” of God.
Staci’s Unpathed Waters, Undreamed Shores and Flourish are available on Amazon.com
Staci’s latest CD, Unpathed Waters, Undreamed Shores is a collection of songs about navigating the messy, unpredictable waters of change. Her most vulnerable and honest songwriting to date, the album reflects a season of big life changes including deep personal losses and the ever-shifting roles of career and parenting.
Held together loosely by the imagery of moving waters, the songs as a whole convey both an unflinching honesty about the inevitability of suffering and a hopeful optimism about the transformation it brings.
Staci’s creativity and passion for encouraging others led her to write Flourish, a conversational, inspiring collection of stories and insights about how to cultivate a life in which our unique gifts find their full expression. Staci shares her journey of discovering her God-designed purpose, and also that of people across the creative spectrum—from homemakers to professional artists—who use their talents in generous and life-giving ways.
Intricate, authentic and hopeful, Staci Frenes continues to cultivate truth that resonates in every aspect of life…through music, speaking and writing… she is confident that the process can be as beautiful as the finish.
