Stacey’s second album Fables was released February 2014. Fables was recorded in a home studio and takes a different approach than the first album. After listening to Fables, Randol hopes the album takes the listener on a relatable journey, where they are not bored with one particular sound or subject.
Chuck Dauphin with Music News Nashville compares her style of song to the melancholy sadness of Orbison and writes, “At the end of the day, I don’t really know how to categorize this music – other than simply say it’s good. It’s a little bit of everything stylistically, and will keep you guessing what is coming next from track to track, but Randol is definitely onto something, and that is very evident!”
Lockeland Springsteen writes, "There’s something about her sweet, choral folksongs that have a thick layer of moody melancholy buried beneath striking poetic lyrics and unique orchestration that stands out in a crowded Americana mass. And “Fables,” the first song off of her album of the same name, stopped me in my tracks. “Don’t get down, that’s just how I am wound,” she sings, her vocals mixed to expose every little syllable, “I don’t belong where I am needed.” Like Stevie Nicks meets Fleet Foxes, the mood set by the track is nearly as evocative as the storytelling – you can see it move in like a steady fog, you can feel it envelop you. A true masterpiece hits on all your senses – I’ve never been one to believe that music’s just for the listening. This one touches them all."
