Review Fix Exclusive: Casii Stephan Talks ‘I Like the Way’ And More

Review Fix chats with Casii Stephan, who discusses her creative process, origin in music and her latest effort, “I Like the Way.”

Review Fix: How did you get involved in music?

Casii Stephan: Grew up with a family that plays and sings, so it was “in my blood”. My mom plays the piano. My aunt sings. My grandpa played trumpet and wrote songs/poetry. Not playing music wasn’t an option for me.

Review Fix: What performers inspire you the most?

Stephan: Celine Dion has been a huge influence. She sings with such depth and emotion and yet is so delightfully herself. She’s my hero.

Review Fix: What’s on your musical bucket list?

Stephan: Performing  –  I would love to play on a late night show.

Watching – I’d love to see Muse. I haven’t seen them and I regret that.

Review Fix: Goals for 2019?

Stephan: Record an album.

Review Fix: What makes your music scene special?

Stephan: The community. It’s full of people who love to support each other and aren’t full of pretention. Just genuine people across multiple genres.

Review Fix: How would you describe your sound to someone who has never heard you?

Stephan: Normally, I would say rock/soul/pop, but Lynne Margolis (American Songwriter) just said we’re funk-blues soul, and that’s pretty great.

Review Fix: Bottom line, what makes you special?

Stephan: Ha! I love this question and I don’t. Um… my voice is always what makes me stand out. It’s special. As for me as a person, we’re all special and yet all the same, aren’t we? 

Review Fix: What next?

Stephan: Music Video for “Letters”!!! Super excited. Can’t you tell?

Review Fix: Anything else you’d like to add?

Stephan: I’m an introvert, so sometimes if I come across as snobby, it’s really just me being insecure or feeling overwhelmed with people interaction. So I apologize in advance.
