Why We Dig Him: The North Carolina native's debut album, 'Shine,' is poised to be his breakthrough. Most of Stillwell's songs are high-energy party anthems, which include the title track's ode to moonshine. While you might be drawn in by his fun songs, stay tuned for the ballads, which skillfully capture longing and heartache. Just in time for summer, this newcomer's music is meant for a lazy day on the porch, drinking with your friends.
