Stephcynie (pronounced stef-sih-nee) is a big ball of love!
The Houston-raised artist spreads joy and happiness wherever she travels in her video for “Free To Love,” a feel-good visual to brighten your day. About the video's concept, Stephcynie explains,
“I wanted to show love in its purist form….I am a romantic that believes in love, friendship and passion. I believe that the same tender, patient and kind love we show to our significant others should be extended outside of our social comfort zone. I lived in New York City for a total of 10 years and while there, one of the things that constantly stood out to me was how the homeless were invisible to those of us who had a home. Somewhere in life, things took a turn for the worst, they lost hope, they were neglected or they just made a poor decision, and had become forgotten, looked past and not seen as human. It could happen to any of us. So, I wanted to find a way to combine my belief in true love, which is colorblind, and my passion for sharing the love within us with people who are normally ignored.”
Stephcynie is a graduate of the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (HSPVA) also attended by Grammy Award winners Beyoncé, Robert Glasper and Brian Michael Cox. She is a 2007 graduate of the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, creating a buzz performing in small theaters and bars around Manhattan shortly after graduating. She now resides in Nashville, TN.
