"Shine the light on the people, so the playing field is equal," he calmly sings.

Welcome to BuzzMusic, P Bailey. We love the inspirational message within your latest single, "Shine." What inspired you to create a song that inspires others?
Positivity, Inspirational, consciousness, and belief in myself. This song has been in my head for yrs. So, when I decided it was time to write it, I flipped it not just my time to shine but our time more universal to apply to everyone,
What was the best part about creating "Shine?" What did you appreciate most from the process?
The best part about creating 'Shine' was seeing it come to life. I was experimenting with sounds. I wanted modern sounds with an Ol school feel. That is what I appreciated most about the process.
How would you describe the sound in "Shine?" Were you influenced by any sounds, artists, or genres?
How I would describe the sound, I would say it is Urban R&B sound with electronic
and a throwback to the funky sounds blending modern sounds with that raw old-school-flavored vocals.
How do songs like "Shine" tell us more about who you are and what you stand for as an artist? How does this song represent you and your music?
I am Ol school, so I am always looking for ways to mesh the 3.0 sounds with a throwback feel, So there is not one particular artist or genre but an eclectic mix to offer something new to the fans. If you notice, the last couple of songs I did with messages positive and inspiring, bold and powerful. I want to be more positive in the calculation but also talk about what is troubling me, what makes me sad, what makes me angry, and what makes me happy. To speak from the heart and keep it real that is who I am as an artist and a human being. This song represents P Bailey today, tomorrow and yesterday. Today when it was ready to be released, Yesterday when it was conceived, and tomorrow where I am going and where I will be in the future.
What's next for you?
What is next for me is up in the air. I do have a new distribution deal with Universal/Ingrooves, and my catalog is growing. So bold ventures, joint ventures, partnerships, the sky is the limit; let's get it!
