The EP also features three additional tracks, “Temptation,” “God Damn” and “He’ll Never Know.” Beyond “Situation,” the singer’s mesmerizing falsetto powers the likes of “God Damn” and the sultry “He’ll Never Know.” A tryst between soul and alternative,STEFAN’s emotive delivery and confessional lyricism bring honesty and heart to R&B.
Of the EP, STEFAN says, “The EP is about nights without self-control, loving the moment and then hating myself after. The songs were inspired by the internal struggle of leaving one addiction for another. Searching for the poison that makes the antidote.”
21-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.”
