Here is an independent artist with a great sound and something a little different to offer. She’s had a few videos out before, but this one is my first introduction to her music. And at this point I have to say I’m a fan of the song. Give it a listen and see what you think.
Ol’ Small Town – Rebecca Stephens
I like Rebecca’s voice. It has a unique quality to it that you don’t get with other country singers today. There is a little bit of folk and hippie in there that make it kind of interesting and fun. It’s plenty strong, but there is a little wispy sound in there and it’s pretty cool.
This song is good for people that are in the young adult stage. I’m probably right at the tale end of that stage in life, but I think you can always remember that time as you get older. It’s about looking back on what your life has been up to that point – your early 20s or so – and going through your first real big change.
You’re off to figure out the world as an adult. You get some friends and then everyone goes off and gets married and has kids. But you can still go back and hang out once in a while.
I like that the setting is a small town. I’m from a small town and that’s definitely how things were. You knew just about everybody in town and then you kind of go off on your own, but you can always come back.
Great new song from Rebecca Stephens. I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
