Stacy fell in love with music at a very early age. She's been singing and playing piano in musicals, bands, and at church since she was a little girl. With encouragement from her parents, Stacy traveled the world with Up with People after high school and has continued making music and serving her community in various ways ever since. In 2007 she released an album of original inspirational pop/rock music.
Stacy had no idea starting a cover band would be so much work but so much fun. She is truly thrilled and honored to work alongside (she actually stands in front of them at work but working alongside sounds better) such wonderful musicians and friends. Most importantly she is the one who looks the best wearing dresses and fancy boots. Stacy is thankful to her family for their support, and to God for the giving gift of music to the world.
Mark Tillman has been playing the Brevard County music scene since the mid-nineties. Mark's indistinguishable drum sound began in his teenage years. While a child of 'KISS' and influenced by bands like Rush, Pantera, and Journey, he began playing as a member of Eau Gallie High School Marching Commodores. His influence has expanded to the most respected in the world, such as Dave Grohl and John Bonham and Sheila E. If you ask the pinnacle of his music experience, he may share the experience of brushing shoulders with Vinnie Paul of Pantera!
Mark has played with such bands as 'Shades of Grey' and many locals still remember the ever popular still 'Buck32'. He has enjoyed many touring experiences throughout the Southeast US region, as well as the Caribbean and most notably Van's 'Wraped Tour'.
As a long time Melbourne resident, Mark is often out enjoying the Brevard music scene while having a beer and catching up with fellow respected musicians and enjoying visiting with friends!

Fred is a native Floridian, born in Melbourne. From as early as he can remember, he yearned to make music. He picked up the guitar at the age of 8 and started teaching himself how to play. Fred’s first ‘legitimate’ lessons, though, came a few years later when he joined the Jr. high school band and discovered the trumpet.
Fred played in several groups around the area and region throughout high school. He was a member of the All-County, All-State, and Tri-State bands, the Disney Honor Band, and performed for many local churches and organizations. Fred spent several years in college pursuing a Music Education degree before moving to Austin, TX, where he performed in various groups during the early 90’s. Fred eventually found his way back to Melbourne, refocused on a career in IT, and started a family.
In 2007, he co-founded the highly successful Chain Reaction band and was later a founding member of the Divas band. Always eager to make more music, Fred joined up with Stacy and Cover Story in 2014.
