Minnesota Artist Casii Stephan Shares New Track ‘Can’t Handle Me’

The Minnesota-born artist, now based in Tulsa, Casii Stephan, delights us with the release of her latest single titled “Can’t Handle Me.”

“Can’t Handle Me,” a gem of funk pop-rock infused with soul, was produced by Ben Tanner, renowned for his work with groups like Alabama Shakes and St. Paul and the Broken Bones. The track explores the highs and lows of single life, particularly the challenge of fending off unwanted advances from a persistent person at a bar.

Casii Stephan, whose emotionally rich voice draws comparisons to alternative artists like Florence Welch and Fiona Apple, has proven to be a talented songwriter. NPR describes her songwriting as reminiscent of Carole King.

Despite her initial shyness about her voice, she began writing songs on the family piano at the age of 16. Her musical journey took a turn when she moved to Tulsa in 2014, initially giving up on a music career. However, encouraged by a friend, she continued writing songs and began releasing music in 2016.

Casii has received praise from publications such as Billboard, NPR, and American Songwriter. Recently signed to TRO Essex Music Publishing, she joins legendary artists like Woody Guthrie and iconic bands such as The Who and Pink Floyd.

Her latest project, titled Relationship Status, is a conceptual EP recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, with producer Ben Tanner. The single, “Can’t Handle Me,” promises a captivating funk pop-rock experience.

The EP, set for release later this spring, explores the emotional journey of transitioning from one relationship status to another, emphasizing the idea that these labels do not define who we are.

Casii Stephan also stands out for her honest and provocative lyrics, challenging negative social norms such as sexism and ageism. Her writing offers deep introspection with the hope that her listeners embark on their own journey of self-discovery.

In conclusion, Casii Stephan continues to make her mark in the music industry, delivering a unique blend of pop, soul, and rock, while staying true to herself and her thought-provoking message. Stay tuned for the “Relationship Status” EP, promising an unforgettable musical experience.
