A high achiever Keri has managed to get it right in the music industry essentially since her debut album, Fool’s Game , which from the first hit single Out on Our Verandah, she was acclaimed a breath of fresh air leaving the industry asking ‘who was this singer from Queensland’.

Her second album Love’s A Crazy Thing, produced five hit singles the self titled Love’s A Crazy Thing, He’s No Good, When Love Walked In, Lonely Life and the standout track Exactly How I Feel, another original, this time with Michael O’Rourke, voted a TIARA Independent Artist Collaboration Award.

KERI McINERNEY is a lady who knows music can move mountains, hearts and tears. 'STAY', is a rich tapestry of emotions, joyful and emotive.

The combination of talents from some of the best Australia has to offer, the essence of magic from Michael Fix, difficult to describe ranging from gusto to maestro, is the perfect balance in sophistication for this album, and teams brilliantly with the production and musicianship from long time associate and music mentor Steve Tebbett, and the knowing contributions of Michael Flanders, Jason Millhouse, Vaughn Jones and fiddler player Savannah Jo Lack.

'STAY', has reaped 3 National and International hit singles for Keri with continued airplay in the USA and Australian Market.
