STEVIE RAE STEPHENS RELEASES NEW SINGLE

Nashville, TN (February 15, 2019) – Pop singer/songwriter and former American Idol powerhouse Stevie Rae Stephens recently released her newest single, “Ladylike.” You can download the song HERE!

With strong lyrics like It’s time we learned how to fight, ’cause lines are blurred and our voices go unheard, I take no pride, ’cause fighting like a lady means fighting for my life, “Ladylike” is sure to become an empowering anthem among Stevie Rae fans.

“The concept of being ladylike is a societal construct that conditions women to be fragile, polite, and restrained,” Stevie Rae explains. “We are taught as children to use our words, avoid conflict, and that commanding, outspoken character traits are less desirable – less ladylike. So what happens when ‘No’ isn’t enough? When our words don’t work? When a lifetime of being ladylike leaves us unprepared to fight back? We have been patient and polite in the face of disrespect long enough. It’s time to reclaim this word and encourage women to be powerful, fierce, and confident.”

“Ladylike” is the second of four singles Stevie Rae will be releasing, preceding three EPs, LadylikeDaydreams and Cruel Love. These will ultimately make up her upcoming album, “Ladylike,” set to be released in Fall 2019.

Inspired by pop icons like Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Sara Bareilles, Stevie Rae also has deep roots in theater and composition. She is currently directing a production of The Vagina Monologues, which will take place on February 17 & 18 at Nashville’s famous Exit/In. Tickets can be purchased HERE.

About Stevie Rae Stephens:
California native, Stevie Rae, is a pop singer/songwriter whose powerhouse vocals, presented through honest lyricism and soaring melodies, create the perfect canvas for her message of empowerment, feminism, and self-love. Past achievements range from reaching the Top 75 on American Idol Season 12 to singing the National Anthem for the San Francisco Giants. She has two full length albums and will be releasing a third called “Ladylike” in Fall 2019.

With deep-yet-releatable lyrics like Don’t know who I am, but I know one thing, I’m not in love, Jennifer Rae’s new “non-love song” is sure to be a hit among fans. This song is extraordinarily important to me because it is about uncertainty and self-reflection,” she explains. “It is about not knowing who you are and learning to accept that. The only thing I felt I was sure of was that I wasn’t in love.”

22, Not in Love was written, performed, mixed, mastered and distributed by an all female team. “I believe songs by women about identity are crucial. There is so much pressure for us to be everything, but we are only human,” the wise-beyond-her-years artist professes.

As a recent transplant to Nashville, TN, Jennifer started out playing numerous shows in the NYC-area, such as the NY Historical Society, Arlene’s Grocery, The West End Lounge, Smash Studios, and Bushwick Public House. Jennifer has worked extensively with multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer, Cole Lumpkin of 300 Entertainment. She is also a founding member of Cleveland’s Sofar Sounds.

SAMBO WOLF RELEASES OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR “MOONSMOKE”

Nashville, TN (September 18, 2018) – Electro-Pop/Rock musician SAMBO WOLF recently released the video for his latest single MOONSMOKE. You can watch the video HERE! A remix by ESCPE will be dropping on September 19, 2018.

MOONSMOKE is designed to share a moment suspended in time, a moment of pure freedom and fleeting bliss,” Wolf explains. “The lyrics are based on true events from my life – an ethereal moment between two lovers enjoying life outside the box – disregarding the rest of the world for a night of liberty in youth. The music video, directed by Samantha Hearn and starring Mila Vilaplana and Kara Nikol, furthers this idea and portrays a night of careless fun in the colorful city lights between two friends who would take on the world together. I believe everyone needs a summer when they can take some time to let life lead you to new places, kick back and blow a little smoke in the moon glow.”

Nashville native Sambo Wolf has embarked on a new journey of self-expression as a solo artist after years of touring and writing with various groups performing a variety of genres. His ethereal pop dreamscapes feature a touch of synth-wave mixed with a Nudisco backbone.

“I wanted to do something that was true to myself and the listener, something that everyone involved with can have fun enjoying, even if it’s just by overhearing the song in passing,” the musician proclaims.

Each moment of every Sambo Wolf song is designed to impress upon the listener a feeling of freedom and connection. These ideals were  brought to life with the help of  Jet Black Alley Cat members Bryant Lowry and Joe Jett, both of whom have earned production and performance credits on Sambo’s first two singles. Inspired by a multitude of pop artists across the decades, Sambo Wolf is a powerhouse of groove, with the right dash of infectious hooks and dream-like imagery.

For more information, you can connect with Sambo Wolf on Facebook and Instagram and hear his music on iTunes and Spotify.
