The Steppas Returns With New Song “Stay”
- Hawaiian reggae band The Steppas unveiled a new song “Stay” with an accompanying music video on October 9th via Easy Star Records.
It is their first single since the 2019 album "Journey Of Roads".
In 2019, the band's friend and longtime manager, Kaliko Keawe'ehu, died suddenly and unexpectedly, then the band was hiatus. But the band returned to the music scene with the new song.
The track was recorded in both Jamaica and in Hawai'i over the summer of 2020. The video was directed by Jeremy Kalima.
The band shared on social media, “This is the band's first release since the 2019 album "Journey Of Roads." The band had been on a bit of a break following that release, dealing with the death of their manager, along with some other close friends and family, and the departure of a few band members. This song talks about love. A love story saying that no matter the situations we go through, no matter the weather, we will remain by our loved one's side. Not all relationships are sunshine and sometimes we travel through the biggest storms but forever we will stay through it all.
“Stay” is masterfully crafted by an all-star cast of musicians. The track was produced by Phillip McFarlane of Earthkry in Jamaica. Along with McFarlane, The Steppas are also joined by Earthkry's bassist Kamardo Blake, Chronixx's guitarist Nnamdi Robinson, Buju Banton's drummer Keneil Delisser, and Sherida Sharpe on backing vocals.”
