Alexis Stevens is a Nashville-based songwriter. Originally from Iowa, she has lived and played music in Eugene and Portland, Oregon, and Los Angeles, California. She returned to her Iowa roots in 2008 and independently released her debut album, Flood or Drought, that same year. Over the next four years, Stevens continued to hone her songwriting, culminating in 2012’s self-titled second album. Her writing is one part needle work and one part ariel photography, as heartbreaking human experiences are patchworked onto beautifully rendered midwestern scenes, creating an enduring portrait of love, loss, and landscape. Stevens relocated to Nashville in early 2013.
