The title track from DB Stewart’s debut EP, “Save My Soul” is a gritty piece of swagger rock that shows good signs of things to come. Using this EP as an opportunity to explore themes of self-identity and meeting expectations, Stewart’s songwriting is ode (or maybe a battlecry) to anyone who’s struggling to track who they are and who they are. Chugging rock guitars and brooding bell hits create a confident, gritty, angst-infused backdrop for Stewarts emotive vocal performance, and the result is a good dose of throw-down rock music- proof that this man knows who he is, what he’s doing, and that he’s only going to keep getting better.
FROM THE ARTIST:
“Save My Soul is the title track to my debut EP. I grew up attending private Christian schools, which introduced a lot of philosophies / ideologies that I didn’t agree with. As early as 1st grade I questioned a lot of what I was being taught. My mother – who is an absolutely amazing, open-minded, and compassionate person – was close to the church growing up, so I felt guilty for not being completely on board with the teachings of the church/school. This record was about the conflict of owning who I am, what I believe, and how I chose to life – which goes against the teachings of the church in some ways – yet also not wanting to let my parents down.”
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
DB Stewart is a singer-songwriter from Seattle, WA.
