Swedish singer/songwriter Steph is not only back with a single but has a whole EP coming up later this year. As a taste of it, she now releases Lifetime, a smooth, soul glider about seeing things from a different perspective, letting ourselves be in the moment and discover the strength and beauty that lies within.
Although this song has many strong sides to it, Stephs voice is, without doubt, the strongest. Throughout the singer has a dreamlike voice and provides airy but passionate vocals, creating a hypnotic sound that truly captivates the listener. There’s also a warm softness and soulful depth to her voice that suits the song perfectly and conveys the song’s message via a skilful storyteller. However, even though the vocals are kept silky and smooth, you can hear Steph’s immense vocal resources shine through from time to time when she shows her more powerful register and wide range.
The singer says her inspiration comes from the ’90s and ’00s R&B music, which we can hear in ‘Lifetime‘. Ideal for late nights, the single’s R&B vibe is wonderfully mellow and even has a superb outro that eases out like a low tide.
Steph does a brilliant job bringing the past up to date by taking the best pieces and blending them with modern influences creating a personal, captivating and highly listenable sound.
