No matter what your favourite genre of music is or what your background is, there’s a plethora of beautifully-sung and written music out there that have this ability to really connect with you and at times bring out the best in you. Nashville-based singer-songwriter Ivory Layne has already drawn comparisons to artists such as Adele and Maggie Rogers, thanks to her unique voice and masterful songwriting. Her latest single “Lonely Hearts” taken from her debut EP Confetti, and released under Justin Timberlake’s development company Villa 40, is a compelling modern day pop song with a powerful message that goes deep into your soul. It’s an emotionally-driven song where Layne’s stunning vocals take centre stage and give you strength and hope on your own personal journey.
“In a world constantly asking “what do you believe?”, I see the Confetti EP as my answer. It’s been my musical collection of lessons learned over the last seven years, touching on themes of personal growth, heartbreak, love, mental health, and letting go. I began this EP having barely co-written, never been in a relationship, still new to Nashville, and with one academic trip abroad under my belt. I finished writing it last year in London, having visited so many times it felt like home, crafting songs about dates gone wrong for the right reasons and the beauty found in every season when you take the time to look. I’m still writing as I’m living, it’s the nature of art itself, but the Confetti EP will always hold a special place as the diary of my early twenties, where I’ve been and where I want to go.” — Ivory Layne.
