As Stephie James readies to release her debut EP These Days (out September 18)—produced, engineered, and mixed by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Hurray for the Riff Raff)—we’re happy to offer a world premiere of her new video of “the title track.
While James has yet to become a household name, her credits are enviable: touring with 8-time GRAMMY Award winner Anita Baker at the age of 17, enjoying years on the road with Nikki Lane (opening her shows and playing in the band), and assistant engineering at Dan Auerbach’s studio, working on records for Buddy Miller, Steve Earle, Shawn Colvin, and The Wood Brothers.
On “These Days,” Matt Menold of Brittany Howard’s THUNDERBITCH and Brooklyn’s Clear Plastic Masks plays guitar alongside “Little” Jack Lawrence of The Raconteurs on bass. This song embraces the grittiness of garage rock productions and also the bittersweet timelessness of Roy Orbison.
DittyTV is thrilled to present the world premiere for the Stephie James video for “These Days” here, and then tune into The Curve Wednesday night, July 15, at 11/10c for the DittyTV Debut.
