OPEN LETTER FROM SEVYN STREETER: “The last year and a half has been quite the roller coaster for me. Incredible highs and some dark lows. I wrote these songs when I wasn't in the best space. Like I ALWAYS say, ‘I DON’T WRITE THE SONGS JUST FOR ME.’ I believe this collection of music can help someone else. So instead of me pretending, denying, and being embarrassed about what I went through, I'm choosing to put these songs out. As a creative being, I just had to release this music before my debut album in order to really move on with my life! So......consider this new project "SHOULDA BEEN THERE PT.1" the prelude or an appetizer before the main course. I hope you enjoy and please know that more is on the way.”-SEVYN STREETER
