Rising R&B Recording Artist STRINGZ EMB Releases Powerful Song: LIGHTS ON
“Lights On” by STRINGZ EMB featuring Will Buchanan and Katarra Parson is globally available on all streaming platforms now.
“LIGHTS ON“ was written by Stringz EMB and produced by John Joseph (Summer Walker‘s “Over it” & “Body”), and PJ Fresh.
“I was inspired to write this song as a result of my own personal struggles of being in the light and forging a smile to hide a depth of depression,” mentions Stringz.
During the current times of the pandemic, depression and mental illness are becoming more and more of a formality, but Stringz EMB’s mission is to shed a positive light in the darkest of rooms by preaching the fact that “it’s ok to not be okay.”
On “LIGHTS ON“, Stringz EMB lays out a passionate piece filled with emotionally heavy vocals and copacetic guitar strumming. His experimental amalgamation of the gospel, soul, blues, hip hop, and acoustic guitar has been deemed by many as something that we’ve been missing for a long time.
The track melodically dives into the artist’s overwhelming sentiment of depression and self-awareness. The first verse starts off with mentions of how due to mental illness issues, close family relationships changed and ultimately faded away. As a rising star, the spotlight is definitely on him, but he admits his true vulnerability with the chilling lyric, “the sun is shining on me, but still, I’m feeling lonely.”

Stringz EMB draws his musical influence from legendary artists such as James Brown, Anthony Hamilton, B.O.B., Drake, and Young Thug. His unique blend of soulful crooning, heavy bass, and live musicians, aids in the production of one the biggest sounds that we’ve heard in a very long time. This rising star is definitely one that you should keep on your radar.
