With the Autumn 2017 release of their first album, And I'm Right, Sami Stevens and the Man I Love are carving out their rightful place in the NYC RnB scene. And I'm Right, released on vinyl through Leesta Vall Records, gives an imaginative, fresh take on old, warm sounds and grooves, drawing comparison to groups like Emily King, Amy Winehouse and Hiatus Kaiyote. The record weaves through influences of Jazz, Classic RnB and Soul, Blues and modern RnB, unified by Stevens' compelling voice as a songwriter. And I'm Right is a window into Stevens' world, telling stories of vulnerability, love, optimism, growing pains, and fiercely powerful perseverance.
“And I’m Right” has the mark of maturity and that’s a rare thing to find these days...the lyrics often impress as well with “She Is God” and “Child They Said Was Mine” mixing together Phoebe Snow style lyrical intelligence with a concise emotional impact." -Bluesbunny
