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.”

- John Amar, Houston Press

“The track has an immediacy that you don’t seem to get in most modern pop. But in the end, it’s the sensibilities of Stephens alongside top notch production that makes the track shimmer and stay with you after you hear it.” - Closed Captioned

While it's true that some people have one of those traits, Houston's John Allen Stephens has all three. On his latest single "Crystal Tokyo (feat. Tee Vee)," he takes all of those elements and drops a true electro-pop gem." - Houston Press
