Stevie B Wolf puts all of his emotions on display in his latest single, “Flights”, which premiered with Play Too Much. To accompany the premiere, Stevie wrote a beautiful editorial about the emotional inspiration behind the song. “Flights” shows off Stevie’s aptitude for pairing the perfect melody with the emotional motivation behind each song. Lyrically, Stevie falls in line with the greats as he paints vivid mental imagery to accompany the vast soundscapes of his compositions. You can listen to the single here.
“Flights” is the third single from the DORADO series. Stevie is releasing a new single every month, and started in February with “Need You Baby”, followed by “Believe the Calm” in March. With his new project, Stevie has allowed his penchant for songwriting to lead his creative process, and in turn give fans more music on a consistent basis. Stevie describes DORADO as a way to “carve out my own space for continual creation without judgment. I decided I would just keep making music, tirelessly and consistently, until I died or until I felt I had a body of work that every single fucking person had to hear.”
Growing up in Colorado, Stevie drew comic books, and would absentmindedly conjure up catchy little melodies and sing them over and over, providing a soundtrack for his drawings. But when Stevie hit junior high and was diagnosed with Tourette’s syndrome and major depression disorder, it was music that saved him, allowing him to connect with people rather than being an outcast. After working on his music for some time, he met with the head of A&R at a major label, and their brutal honesty changed his perception of his musical dreams. This dose of reality hit Stevie hard, but couldn’t diminish his passion for music once in college. While studying abroad in London, he started skipping assignments to work on his own music again, and playing open mics in the local pubs. With a new set of dreams and aspirations, Stevie moved to Brooklyn, dyed his hair silver after a bad breakup, and kept moving forward with his music. His series of singles, DORADO, allows him to keep making music, tirelessly and consistently, until satisfied with the body of work that was perfect for his dreams.
