Interview: "Spoils of War" - stef
Congratulations on the release of your new single “Spoils of War”! It is for sure one of your best. Can you share the story behind this track and what inspired you to write it?
stef: I was going through a really hard breakup last August and I wanted to write a nostalgic coming of age piece that represented my healing, but also demonstrated that you can be hurt and healing at the same time. I was also currently watching the show Maid on netflix which is a series shedding light on domestic violence. I have never been in an abusive relationship but many of my friends have suffered from DV so the second verse is inspired by that show.
What does your songwriting process look like? Does it follow a similar pattern or is it different every time?
stef: Songwriting for me is very different every time! It comes in all forms for me.
If you could play a show anywhere in the world or at a certain venue, where would you pick and why?
stef: I am excited to play MSG in a few years, Coachella, and also red rocks looks like such an awesome venue.
Any recommendations on places to visit while in Nashville? I’m visiting soon and I love asking artists who live there what they recommend!
stef: Yes! You have got to go to Urban Cowboy/ Public House. They have the best drinks and also you have to get the pizza- get the “sam special” with ranch! Rosemary is one of our favorite bars to dance at, there is a line but it goes fast and worth it.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not performing or making music?
stef: I also resell vintage full time. I have built a platform of almost 200,000 people doing that. I stay busy, that is for sure!
What do we have to look forward to from you later this year?! After hearing this new track, I can’t wait to see what you do next :)
stef: I am continuing to release a whole new ep! Outside of work, I am hoping I can get some traveling in.
