It’s been more than three and a half years since we heard new music from Steph Barrak. Her debut LP, Words To Break Your Heart, came out on Valentine’s Day 2013 and she added her name to my list of singer/songwriters to watch. Finally she’s back with a new single and a record due out in early February.
The time in between releases hasn’t caused any deficit in her songwriting or singing. “So Familiar” is as radio-ready and relatable as anything off Words. The production feels like it’s taken a step up, so the new record may be a bit more slick. She’s working with the same team from the last album, and they all seem to have grown together during the hiatus.
As with her previous album, 50% of the sales of this single will go toward Girls Rock Boston. You can purchase it here.
Never Again will be available February 3rd.
