JC STEWART SHARES THE NEW SINGLE ‘HAVE YOU HAD ENOUGH WINE?’

JC Stewart crafts songs born from his own experiences of love and heartbreak that explode from intimate confessionals into bold anthems. He’s already achieving great things.

Now JC Stewart’s ascent continues with his new single ‘Have You Had Enough Wine?’, which is an autobiographical account of the final conversation he had with an ex-girlfriend. “Have you had enough wine? “Have I ruined your life? I didn’t mean to,” he sings, his voice brimming with emotion, in a track produced by his regular collaborator, the Grammy-winning producer Fred Ball (The Carters).

“The relationship was on the way out,” he explains. “It takes those three lines and turns it into something bigger. It’s a really simple, human thing that everyone goes through at some point.”

The song’s vulnerability also resonated in the accompanying video, which was directed by Greg Barnes (Kamaal WilliamsYoung Fathers).

An intense examination of the volatility of young love, it depicts JC Stewart and his on-screen girlfriend sharing their final meal together as their troubled relationship comes to an explosive end. It cuts back home, where JC loses himself in his music as he attempts to find closure following their split. It’s a video which reflects his experiences of finding comfort in songwriting in the wake of a break-up.

Both the song and the video reflect the Professional Sadboy nickname that his sister bestowed upon him. It’s a cheeky if appropriate moniker for a man who explores the thrill of romance, the pain of heartache and everything in-between.

“Most of my songs start as a small conversation with someone,” he explains, citing influences such as James BlakeDermot KennedyHozierTomWaitsBob Dylan and The Band“Then the question is: how do I make it into something bigger that people can connect to, while also keeping it personal?”

In addition to Fred Ball, recent months have seen JC Stewart working with some of the world’s leading producers and writers. Justin Parker, a regular co-writer for Lana Del Rey, is also a regular collaborator. Meanwhile, sessions in Los Angeles have included work with Greg Wells (Dua LipaAdele), Toby Gad (JessGlynneJohn Legend), Jon Green (Rag N Bone ManJames Bay) and Jonny Coffer (BeyoncéFall Out Boy)

‘Have You Had Enough Wine?’ is the first release on his Sunshine Boy sub-brand which he’ll be using to release music and merch.
