Over the years, the singer has released songs that have made us fall in love and heal the brokenhearted.  

"From the very beginning of the first song I wrote before I turned 16 to the last song I ever wrote, there's a certain thread that I use because it's just what I do... The songs are all about love and heartbreak – how to pick up the pieces – how to keep moving... I'm really chronicling love from the very beginning," reads a snippet from her website

Stevie has enjoyed working with several iconic stars during her musical career.
