“Writing these songs was the most beautiful and heartbreaking process I think I’ve been through,” Stewart says. “I’ve poured so much emotion into this EP, and it captures so many vulnerable moments from my life, with if you only knew being one of the heaviest. As a songwriter, it’s really cathartic to be able to share this story, and my only hope is that it helps people who might be struggling in their own ways.”

Following his upcoming intimate show for NYC fans, the Canadian singer will debut a live performance of if you only knew on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Wednesday, December 13th.
