Casii Stephan is a Tulsa based singer/songwriter who fuses soul, pop, rock and folk for an enthralling sonic experience. Her latest single “Already Gone” is the first of the year from this artist on the rise.
With “Already Gone”, the songwriter explores the mind of a woman about to leave an abusive relationship. Her bravery is tangible and her courage is real. Casii confides on the release, “I don’t think mocking your abuser is ever advised and this song definitely mocks. This is more the hype song that someone can play to give them the courage to finally just leave. May it give someone the extra push they need to run. Trust your soul. Go.” With rock-drenched soundscapes full of blues guitar riffs, warm and penetrating vocals, and catchy melodies, “Already Gone” is reminiscent of The Black Keys meets Janis Joplin with the soul of Alabama Shakes.
Casii Stephan is an acclaimed and celebrated songwriter. Her releases have garnered praise from the likes of NPR and Billboard and she has performed at SXSW and the Sundance Film Festival. The musician and singer found her voice at 16 and used performing as a way to get over her childhood shyness. With more music to come, we can’t wait to hear what is next from this transformative artist.
