You Will Heal is the latest track from Heartache In 4/4 Time by Starlings, TN


Austin-based songwriter Steve Stubblefield will be embarking on a series of Southern dates with his band Starlings, TN in support of his current album Heartache In 4/4 Time, out now on Austin's Chicken Ranch Records.  The tour will include a date at this year's edition of the popular Hopscotch Music Festival in Raleigh, North Carolina.

In celebration of the run, a new track from Heartache In 4/4 Time is being made available for download.

You Will Heal” began with an idea I had bringing in other people to tell help me tell a story through song,” says Stubblefield. “I reached out to fans and friends on Facebook asked them to share a story of something horrible they went through and how they got through it. To my surprise, I received numerous responses and then I took the stories and added a few of my own experiences to arrive at ‘You Will Heal.’

Stubblefield has his share of these kinds of stories, and they have set the tone for much of his songwriting in the past. “I wanted to be more positive on this record,” he admits. “Since I moved to Austin, life has been pretty good.  Hot as hell, but good. ‘You Will Heal’ represents that transformation more so than any other song on this record.”
