Singer-songwriter Stephanie Lambring’s Autonomy embraces the heaviness that can sometimes exist in life, confronting hard truths and examining difﬁcult topics through a lens of someone working to reconcile their feelings about it all. Within its 10 tracks, Autonomy ﬁnds Lambring coming to terms with what her life and her world are made of. She asks listeners to take a moment and think about what makes them, and everyone who surrounds them, so human. The scars, the fears, the doubts, the resolution, and the lights at the end of the tunnel.
Lambring’s ability to turn speciﬁc, personal details into universally relatable anecdotes — examining topics that sound familiar, things you’ve thought about before, from childhood embarrassments that still pop up now and again to relationships that were bad choices from the beginning, from the constant desire to (still) please parents, to what in the world it feels like to try and understand evangelical Christianity in the current iteration of America — has garnered critical acclaim from NPR, landing on their Best Songs of 2020 list and a featured spot on All Songs Considered, as well as Rolling Stone, American Songwriter and more.
