CUE4Z has been hanging around the musical movement of Mr. Boudreaux since 1977, where in he would hop in and out of songs as he felt motivated to do. These two have been friends, I'm sure since around the B.C. era. I gist of course, but safe to say it's been a lifetime. Both share a common experience of hard lessons learned which divided their paths for a number of years. Needless to say, once again converging path's have returned them to the music scene, stronger and smarter and with much more to give in the way of solid, meaningful, deeper and emotionally driven musical arrangements.
Also, only recently has CUE4Z picked up the guitar, for an addition to his repertoire. His 1 year +/- guitar ability can be heard on tracks such as ENERGY TO BE, LIGHT OF THE LORD-NIV, SEEN IT ALL BEFORE, and others.
Mr. Stacey, or "Bdx" as he is called (an abbreviated version of his last name, "Boudreaux") began playing around 1976 when he thought the 4 strings he had on his nifty Silvertone from the Western Auto was the thing.
Most of the groups he made an effort with usually focused on the music he would write and compose, only. They would cover maybe 2-3 songs because they were at that time "super bad!" ..(as he would put it). Bdx served as a change in tempo for any venue that he would perform for. For the basic reason that no-one knew any of his music (but that was changing). Interesting point he makes is
"....my audience couldnt judge it in the sense of --"hey...that didn't t sound like the CD"....they either liked it or not. And for that matter, I didn't have a CD.!!... ha ha..."
As much as Bdx professes to love playing good, solid & complex rock and roll, his heart remains with and gravitates towards the acoustic sound, providing the platform to share personal and noteworthy life events in which he attributes survival of, to his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He notes "...my BEST thinking got me in the muck and mire..."
Being a self taught musician and without any formal training or lessons, Bdx knows without a doubt there is a lot more to learn. Seemingly, given his latest rounds of track releases, with the introduction of string sections, piano pieces, bongos, synthesized segments, leads and harmonies into his music, I think it's safe to say Bdx is moving along in pursuing the "lot more" there is to learn. StudioBDX? Indeed.
