From the latest full album, ‘All That Glitters’ (out now), wonderfully decadent singer/songwriter Willow Stephens brings all that is from a different but oh so, gorgeously, familiar to our deepest wants and desires.
‘Lullaby’ is from a place of personal revelry, as Willow’s willingness to go forth of telling of the first time she met her husband. Couldn’t sleep, she dedicated a part of her restless night to writing this shimmering mountain of a lullaby ballad.
In 2018, Willow set out to write 100 songs and by the end of the year, the album had started taking its shape and she knew that she had to find a way to refine it and release the music. ‘All That Glitters’ is not gold and all that is gold does glitter was the thread that ran through everything.
“We spend our lives searching for the things that will make us feel full and give our life value. Many times, we get pulled off track by the shiny things that give instant gratification and grab our attention at this very moment. Too often, we miss the incredible gifts that are right in front of us. But every once in a while, we strike gold and stumble on the real deal and if we’re lucky, we realize it when we find it.”
With Willow’s defyingly angelic vocals and fulfilling admirations of construction, ‘Lullaby’ shatters conventions, while healing the cracks of individual misgiving, altruistic schisms.
Unendingly, and ultimate, all of the pieces fit as they bloom to deliver the tear inducing vibes that were seeded of care and affection.
Love shows its magic, once more.
See Willow next @ Troubadour, West Hollywood on January 9th.
