Stacey Q

Stacey Lynn Swain was born on November 30, 1958 in Fullerton, California. She is a pop singer, dancer and actress who's best known for her 1986 hit Two of Hearts. As a child she grew up taking ballet classes and aspired to become a professional ballerina when she grew up.

Then, they formed SSQ, which was a reformation of the Q band. However, in 1986 she became a solo artist and eventually meeting with great success via her signature hit Two of Hearts. She even guested twice the famous and popular 80's sitcom, The Facts of Life with her character Cinnamon.

Color Me Cinnamon (2010)

Color Me Cinnamon is Stacey Q's fifth and so far last studio album, released on February 14, 2010 by Hydra Productions. On “Color Me Cinnamon,” Stacey Q takes listeners on a musical journey, assuming several personas throughout the album. She transforms from a woman of the night on “Candy Apple” to a wealthy French socialite who has every-thing money can buy but nothing she really want on “Sad Cafe.” Other standout tracks include the pulsating “Euphoria,” about achieving extreme content and fulfillment; the radio-friendly “Below the Surface,” about an extreme burning desire; “Masquerade,” about living behind a mask; and the retro-80s sounding “The Lion’s Den,” about the New York City party scene. The album title, “Color Me Cinnamon,” taps into a unique part of Stacey Q history. The title references the album title that was used on the popular 1987 episode of “The Facts of Life,” in which Stacey played the character Cinnamon, a bud-ding rock star. The acting role was specifically written for Stacey. The singles taken from this album were: Trip (released in 2009) and Pandora's Box.
