Los Angeles-based producer, singer-songwriter Stephen Swartz, known by his stage name Stephen, has unveiled his latest single “Crossfire.” The song’s meaning is deep, as you can tell by the sound of someone sobbing at the beginning of the track.
“There are people out there who are suffering and there’s very little they can do about it,” explains the 23-year-old. “Sometimes I feel guilty when I’m happy because I know that these people are hurting. How can I be happy when I know that people are being forced to live in refugee camps and ghettos, while women are being sex trafficked and millions of innocent people are suffering? So as I sit here and look at my life, I feel grateful, but I also feel confused. How can I enjoy these blessings when I know others can’t?”
