Amy Stroup Keeps All Eyes and Ears on Her With 'Stare': Exclusive Premiere -Amy Stroup has a silky, captivating voice that has served as the soundtrack for over 400 film and television spots. With the retro-inspired sound of her band Sugar & The Hi Lows, Stroup's music has been the backdrop to love stories (for instance, a 2014 Zales commercial) and earned her and bandmate Trent Dabbs a place on stage with artists like Kacey Musgraves, Chris Stapleton, and Kings of Leon.
"Stare" is the second single from Helen of Memphis. The new song preserves elements of its predecessor "Magic" in terms of its anthemic sound and well-curated syncopation. Between the two singles, the artist’s masterful wordplay also remains intact. "Sonically, I wanted it to be like a cousin to 'Magic' on the album; confident, interesting, and a little messed up but on the beat," Stroup says.
