"I'm Desperately in Need, This Uphill's Hard to Reach"

Sometimes it's better to call a spade a spade and what I know is Stephen (Swartz) is more than your average artist. When it comes to dishing out credit for the success of tracks, I've always swung slightly on the producer side of the fence rather than the artist. The artists that can seamlessly swing back and forth between artist and producer are the true unicorns that probably don't get enough credit for the breadth of their contributions to a track.

All that being said, I'm going to fight my innate urge to categorize the type of music that Stephen is making of late. While most will hone in on his vocal abilities, I'm impressed with his songwriting and production. The progression that the beat goes through moves the track along well and helps tell his story of living up to expectations. The use of samples and guitar riffs throughout make for an overall unique sound. If a slice of different is what you're in the mood for, Fly Down is going to hit the spot...#FlyDown
