There a new face on the rise in R&B, as Soul/Pop vocalist, songwriter and producer Stefan James unveils his debut single, Situation.
The release comes on the heels of Stefan’s showcase debut last night at E&C Studio in New York where the artist played to a packed house of industry taste makers.
Written as a reflection on the trials and tribulations of addiction, “Situation” contrasts delicate instrumentation against Stefan’s entrancing R&B falsetto. The song sets the stage for further music to be released by Stefan James this fall.
20-year-old Stefan James’ music and lyrics pull from a life marred by tragic events, including battles with addiction and substance abuse, as well as the tragic loss of his older brother. Stefan turned to music to lead him on his road to recovery. Creating music enabled him to share this pain productively and poetically. “I’ve been there,” Stefan says, speaking to all who are dealing with depression, loss or addiction. “When you’re feeling down, just put a couple of my songs on and cry or smile. Whatever you have to do to get through that moment. You’re not alone.”
