How Do I Even Start: South Shields singer Jen Stevens is so classy on ‘She Sleeps’

Featuring her late Mum’s beautiful poetry, Jen Stevens sends us a real gem that will have you reaching for the tissues on the stunning new single named ‘She Sleeps‘.

Jen Stevens is an award-winning piano/folk/pop singer-songwriter, mental health advocate, cat lover and well-respected vocal coach, who is from cozy South Shields from the UK. She makes that enthralling music which is delightfully made and is such an elegant listen.

I’ve been playing piano and singing for as long as I can remember, and I started writing songs as a means to tell stories and communicate my feelings – I don’t like to sing about things I can’t relate to, so it makes sense to sing about people, experiences and things that mean something to me. If I can reach out to just one person, and touch one heart at a gig or through a recording, then I’ve accomplished something. Songwriting, for me, is massively cathartic and a definite form of therapy.” – Jen Stevens

She Sleeps‘ from the sterling South Shields, UK-based singer-songwriter/vocal coach Jen Stevens, shows us a conversation between herself and her beloved late Mum and is a really sweet single.

Maybe I Need Help: Chicago pop singer Rowan Morgan is refreshingly honest on visuals for ‘Imposter Syndrome’

As she looks deep within her confidence to see if she can shake off this dreaded feeling away quickly, Rowan Morgan tells us the story of how she once didn’t know if she was good enough, on her relevantly precise new single named ‘Imposter Syndrome‘.

Rowan Morgan is a youthfully exuberant Chicago, Illinois-based indie pop singer-songwriter. She makes that reflective sound that is influenced by her love and appreciation for her heroes Dua Lipa and Ariana Grande.

This upbeat yet dark melody came to me at a time when I was doubting my skills in music. ‘Imposter Syndrome‘ is believing that you are not as competent or as good as people perceive you to be and they are going to find out that you are just a fraud. Everyone has been through that fear of being less than, and I was able to put that into words with a harmony heavy, energizing pop song.” – Rowan Morgan

She sings with such valid introspection, as the compare-culture of the world had her in so much doubt-filled sadness, as she had never felt this way before. Her talents are boundless and she is so good – but needs to always be able to switch on her positive energy – so that the darkness and nay-sayers, may be shown the door so that they never return.

Imposter Syndrome‘ from Chicago pop singer-songwriter Rowan Morgan, is a flashing bulb of doom from her incredibly skilled mind that stops her by the traffic lights. This is the warning that shows you into the depths of the sewers next to you, to remind you that you need to believe in yourself, to truly be free away from those toxic depths of gloom.

Having that inner determination to do what you truly believe in – is the only way to seeing that green light – that will let you across so you may carry on your path to your destiny, after the teaching-moment detour before.
