It’s a Glossy, Retro-Inspired Indie Gem
By Frank Bell
Coming about at an undeniably difficult time for the famous, creative city of Liverpool – Shining through the hardship is the songwriting talent of Aimee Steven. Fast becoming known in her home city and across the country for her raw, spirited guitar music, Aimee has returned with Today, a new approach with a softer sound.
“I wrote Today thinking about how completely and utterly fragile our time is in this world and how important it is that we share that time with people we love. It came pretty easy once I had that emotion to draw upon, I thought of a number of people in my life whilst writing and once the verses were nailed down the chorus rushed out of me. ‘’Today’’, now, the present… because tomorrow and yesterday don’t really exist.”
Embracing her time throughout lockdown, the Scouse guitar queen has spent her time building a fanbase online. She’s also embraced opportunities to perform for the women’s empowerment campaign Generation W and global charity NPH USA’s appeal to support vulnerable children in South America during the pandemic. Her unique take on indie and pop is a breath of fresh air, and is sure to win over fans across the globe.
