She's been nominated for Best Rock Song, Best Rock Artist, and Special Songwriter for "Every Time I Think of You" and for the Album of the Year, "TIME." We are going to review three of the best songs in the album. 

House of the Rising Sun

"House of the Rising Sun" is a haunting exploration of regret and redemption. Set in the colorful backdrop of New Orleans, the song masterfully weaves a tale of life consumed by an uncontrolled addiction and another consumed by sin and subsequent longing for salvation. The vivid depiction by Maryann Stefanik about her journey, through her lyrics and her raw and passionate vocals, creates an immersive experience for listeners and lingers long in their minds after the song ends. 

The lyrics are rich in imagery. They tell a story of a troubled upbringing. It mentions a mother who was a tailor sewing her jeans, and a father who was a gambler in New Orleans. The story of her father adds depth to the narrative, making it relatable to her audience. These elements, combined with Stefanik's excellent storytelling, breathe new life into the song. 

And not just her vocals that captivate you. Her husband Tim Stefanik's fingers go hard on those guitar strings, evoking the song's emotional resonance. The strumming patterns and the chord progressions complete the lyrical content, adding more flavor to the narrative. The song ends with a caution to listeners, urging them to steer clear of the protagonist's path, thereby stamping a timeless appeal. 

The Outsider

"The Outsider," by indie singer Maryann Stefanik, is a soul-stirring melody exploring an underdog determined to win against all odds. Stefanik's lyrics are compelling and paint a vivid picture of a character refusing to be defined by societal norms and expectations. The lines, "You might think the Outsider's bound to lose," and "He's not tired No No, He's not tired of looking in to WIN," showcase determination and resilience and capture the essence of the human spirit. 

The song's narrative revolves around an 'Outsider' pursuing victory despite being continuously underestimated." Stefanik uses repetition, particularly with the phrase, "The Outsider, The Outsider's looking in," emphasizing the characters' persistence and desire to be accepted. It's a tune that resonates with her audience, making it relatable and inspiring. 

Every Time I Think of You

Maryann Stefanik's "Every Time I Think of You" captures the heartbreak of love lost. The beautiful lyrics convey a depth of raw emotion, tender and relatable. Stefanik's lines, such as "Don't say goodbye till tomorrow comes, Cause when it comes, I know we're through," and "Every time I think of you, Every time I picture you, I cry," tell a story of universal longing and sorrow.

The repetition of the phrase, "Every time I picture you, I cry," further expresses the persistent pain of remembering a loved one. The lyric, "I laid my head on my pillow and cried myself to sleep," effectively conveys the solitude and despair that often comes with heartbreak. The song is truly a lyrical masterpiece, beautifully encapsulating the complexities of love and loss. An authentic touch to the power of memory and emotion, “Every Time I Think of You” has been nominated for two categories at the 2023 Indie Music Channel Awards.
