BB Stevens releases "Christmas All Year"

Hoboken based BB Stevens, whose EP Not My Monkeys came out on Stryker Records a few months ago, has released a new holiday tune - “Christmas All Year.” It’s a song that blends the spirit of the holiday with the recognition that his own relationship carries that spirit all year long.

“When people ask / Why each day can’t be Christmas? / I don’t pay those people much mind / 

“Because it’s occurred to me / Since the day I met you / Every day it’s Christmas time”

BB Stevens signed his first record deal with a major label at sixteen. Over the years he’s produced records and composed songs for such international stars as Madonna. Recent collaborations include having worked with the former Saving Abel vocalist Scotty Austin as well as award winning record producer Malcolm Springer on “Lucifer’s Rain (The Bad One Is Back)” in the summer of 2023. After an extended hiatus from the creative and performing side of the music industry he returned with an EP titled Not My Monkeys.

Not My Monkeys features five original self-composed alternative/modern rock tracks. Clocking in at a bit over nineteen minutes the EP embodies work with an eclectic combination of musical influences. Stryker Records, Inc. (an imprint label of the Universal Music Group Ingrooves family) was released worldwide on September 29, 2023. The first single from the EP was "Spirit Be Gone."
