R&B Artist Steven Christopher Shares New Single + Video “Don’t Feel Like Dancing”

LA-based R&B artist Steven Christopher today shares his new single “Don’t Feel Like Dancing” with an accompanying video. This is the first release from his debut EP, coming at the end of this summer, and follows the release of “In My Head” that has amassed close to 105K streams. 100% of the proceeds of the song will be donated to Black Lives Matter for one year. “Activism means a lot to me,” explains Steven, “I see and appreciate the work being done by Black Lives Matter and specifically its Los Angeles arm following the killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and the unacceptably long list of others we’ve lost due to police brutality. I’m grateful for the small victories we’ve seen over the past weeks but know that this fight is long-term and we cannot go back to business as usual until widespread reform is passed regarding the use of force and hate crimes against black people.”

“Don’t Feel Like Dancing” was written and produced by Steven. The pop-punk influenced track gives the finger to a past lover.

The video set on a DTLA rooftop was directed by Steven, and produced by Farai Mhundwai and LA-based production company We Make Movies.  In the video fans can see Steven expressing the rage and frustration captured in the song by taking a sledge  hammer to a variety of objects. Through the destruction of these objects, a printer, a watermelon, etc. Steven demonstrates the greatness that can come from tearing things down and starting over.

Steven Christopher on filming the video: “We shot it long before the protests happened but it’s trippy how relevant it is to everything going on in the country.”

Born and raised in Memphis, TN Steven Christopher is the epitome of the DIY artist, entirely self produced and written, his songs glide seamlessly back and forth between heavily inspired early 2000 R&B pop and cloud rap. Steven’s love of music was developed at an early age following his aunts and uncles as they gigged around Memphis, known for singing behind major Gospel and R&B artists. In 2018 he moved to Los Angeles to further pursue his love for music and film. Steven recently made his acting debut in feature film CUCK, that has been profiled in Vanity Fair and the Hollywood Reporter. He is now ready to unveil his first full length project at the end of Summer 2020.
