Uncomfortable Convos | “Uneasy” by Stevie Rae Stephens

Nashville, TN – Pop singer/songwriter and former American Idol powerhouse Stevie Rae Stephens recently released her newest single, “Uneasy.” 

Uneasy by Stevie Rae Stephens

With touching, yet chilling, lyrics like Does it make you uneasy, when the world is in pain and the face of it looks like you, does it make you uneasy, when the women you love and the men you call friends write #metoo, Stevie Rae manages to write a very relatable song based on unfortunate current events.

“Uneasy” is the first of four singles Stevie Rae will be releasing, preceding three EPs, Ladylike, Daydreams, and Cruel Love. These will ultimately make up her upcoming album, Ladylike, set to be released in Fall 2019.

“Uneasy” is Available Now on iTunes & Spotify!

As an activist for raising awareness and confronting domestic violence, rape culture, sexual violence/exploitation/trafficking in all it’s ugly forms, I do my best to address these issues in my songwriting. To call me a ‘feminist’ is an understatement.
– Stevie Rae Stephens

Inspired by pop icons like Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Sara Bareilles, Stevie Rae also has deep roots in theater and composition. She is currently directing a production of The Vagina Monologues, which will take place on February 17 & 18 at Nashville’s famous Exit/In. Tickets can be purchased HERE.
