houston press covers addiction and john allen stephens
Producer, Collaborator and Recording Artist John Allen Stephens Releases Newest Single "Addiction"
“Addiction,” a colorful, soulful, post-pop cut, blends jazz, pop, R&B, and gospel influences over an immediately commanding, tightly gripped groove. Stephens’ razor sharp production fuses seamlessly with glistening piano (Zeke Listenbee), heavenly choirs (Ejay Mallard, Paul Z'Maji, Asheley Bowles, Milayah Scott), and trumpet and saxophone solos (Adam DeWalt and Leo Rayon, respectively) which round out the song’s final flight, offering the song an improvisatory approach Stephens says he fell in love with after working with local favorite The Suffers.”
