STNFXCE’s Debut EP, ‘STX//stns,’ Bravely Confronts Uncomfortable Emotions

Cover art: Alec Hudson

“Guess I fell on deaf ears— nobody hears me. Y’all see me cryin’
And y’all fear me, cuz when you ever seen a black man cry?
Unless he’s begging for his life, he can’t get teary eyed.”

-STNFXCE, “Solow”

STNFXCE (pronounced Stoneface) is a genre-melding contemporary soul artist from the South Side of Chicago. Despite his name and stoic-by-choice stage presence, his debut EP, STX//stns, is an exercise in vulnerability; one intended to challenge society’s stifling expectations of hypermasculinity among young black men.

UMC20: June 3, 2020

Our goal with this week’s UMC20 playlist — and really, any UMC20 playlist — is to present music from artists of all genres and perspectives. The common thread is that we, as human beings, are all unified in our creative passions, storytelling abilities, and collective drive to have a lasting, positive impact on the world around us.

In these turbulent times, we feel it is important to continue providing that platform. Beyond that, we are committed to finding ways to help create a stronger society; one that respects and celebrates the differences of its members. We welcome your input on how we can use our platform to achieve that goal, now and in the future.

We love you, and we look forward to those conversations. For now, we offer you this week’s playlist.
