Lyricist/Singer-Songwriter Stam Goody released the debut episode of his 6-part docuseries ‘If Anything Happens…’ on July 19. The Camden, New Jersey & Wilmington, DC native follows up with episode 2 that dives even deeper into his family and hometown roots that culminated in his upbringing.
Hoping to change the narrative for other youth boys and girls dealing with similar issues, Stam is exemplifying how they too don’t have to keep everything inside, and instead promoting an environment for open expression and solidifying a healthier foundation in moves towards legacy.
“There’s a direct relationship between the way you deal with trauma inside the home and outside of the home. Calculating that relationship is a lifelong equation that too many of us never find the answers to.”
Executive produced by Stam and his label partners, Saint Louis and James Jackson, of GoodVibesCARTEL and directed by Christian Nolan Jones, Stam hopes the series will serve as a therapeutic precedent and become a gateway to starting conversations with one’s own family.
