Welcome, Gavyn Bailey! Congratulations on the release of "Grass Is Never Greener", as well as the other accomplishments your music has seen in the past few years. In retrospect, how do you feel you've grown artistically since you first debuted your music in 2013?
Thank you so much! Oh gosh… looking back now I think that I've grown immensely as an artist since 2013. I took a lot of time for myself since then to focus on my songwriting and really perfecting my own personal sound. It really matters to me that I showcase a more mature sound for my upcoming record, which is why I haven’t put any of my own music out for 4 years. I’ve been honing in on my craft and growing as a person and artist, and I’ve found a home for my sound that I’m really excited about. I think this new music showcases my growth as an artist since my debut EP. I've grown up a lot as a person as well, and have gained a lot of life experience in between. I think you’ll see that it really comes through in these new songs.
“Grass Is Never Greener" has a nice contrast between production and lyrical meaning. Delving more into the emotional significance the song holds, what lyric holds the most magnitude for you personally in the song?
The lyrics of this song talk about a journey of acceptance. Accepting that life is not always going to be perfect and that nothing ever truly goes as planned, and that living life with the mentality that things could always be better is a very dangerous place to be. Personally, the lyric I relate with the most is the pre-chorus, “I’m coming into myself lately / Learning what I am and what I can’t be / Maybe it’ll educate me / Not to chase after shadows.” It really shows where I was in that moment when I was writing the song. I was learning a lot about myself during that time (and still am), like what I could and couldn’t handle between life, relationships and everything else in between. I learned not to go after things that aren’t good for me and to love wherever you’re at in life, even if it’s not exactly where you wanted to be.
Thanks for chatting with us, Gavyn! Knowing your vigor and motivation, we know we can expect more music to come! Any hints as to when you'll be releasing new material or even possible future collaborations?
Thank you so much for having me. I have been working on an album for the last two years and I think we are about ready to share it with the world. I don’t have a release date set in stone yet, but it's coming very soon!
