Singer/Songwriter Stam Goody releases the premiere episode of his 6-part docuseries, entitled, ‘If Anything Happens…’. The series follows Stam’s journey home to Camden, New Jersey & Wilmington, DE where he allows viewers into his family’s story and gives them a look at the environment he grew up in. Stam’s family & friends give one-on-one interviews exemplifying the critical junctures and decisions that have shaped Stam into the artist & man he is today.
Stam’s vision for the series is to open up his family as a case study, hoping to break the chains of generational trauma by promoting an environment for open expression and solidifying a healthier foundation in moves towards legacy. From growing up in a violent, gang-overrun neighborhood to his family being homeless at age 14, Stam reflects on his struggles and the crucial role it plays in his life, he deliberately chooses not to lead with it; choosing instead to be defined by his purpose.
“If Anything Happens…” is a phrase that was used a lot in my family. We lived in environments and circumstances that always had an omnipresent sense of danger and angst,” Stam Goody explains. “I wanted to take the phrase and turn it into something more universal, positive and open ended. That’s why there’s an ellipsis at the end of it. What does this phrase mean to you? How does or can it apply to your life? Even while hearing what it meant to mine.”
Executive produced by Stam and his label partners, Saint Louis and James Jackson, of GoodVibesCARTEL and directed by Christian Nolan Jones, Stam hopes the series will serve as a therapeutic precedent and become a gateway to starting conversations with one’s own family.
