City Girls Music Video

City Girls taps into the same enterprising spirit applauded in male rappers when they wax poetic about selling drugs or pimping to escape bleak financial circumstance. This female version is just as inspiring.

Stefan James x Debut Single

R&B has a new face on the rise. Soul/Pop vocalist, songwriter and producer Stefan James unveils his debut single, “Situation,” today via Republic Records. Listen and share HERE!

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 tastemakers.

Written as a reflection on the trials and tribulations of addiction, “Situation” contrasts delicate instrumentation against Stefan’s entrancing R&B falsetto. The song is setting the stage for further music to be released by Stefan James this fall.

The 20-year-olds’ music and lyrics pulls 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.”

Further music from Stefan James is set for release this fall.

With tinges of trap and trip-hop, the Toronto songwriter Blaise Moore pens honest, poetic lyrics that are written with a maturity well ahead of her years.

“He Don’t” is the the third track from Blaise’s LaurenceEP, appropriately named after the ex-lover responsible for fuelling the inspiration behind the music. As she simply puts it: “I fell in love with a man that was only thinking with his dick.”

Moore has further garnered attention after opening for Kehlani at Red Bull 30 Days in Chicago and performing at House of Dior’s 70th Anniversary at the Royal Ontario Museum.
