Country music has always felt like home for Elyse Saunders. From the dynamic stages of Toronto to the bright lights of Nashville, the Peterborough, Ontario native has followed a path of steadfast determination and artistic inspiration.
Free – co-written by Saunders and Shawn Moore – is her debut collaboration with acclaimed producer Dan Swinimer (Madeline Merlo, JoJo Mason).
The song sounds so good. I like the electronic-pop elements. Besides, the hooks are memorable. Furthermore, I’m also a fan of the acoustically driven rhythm with soaring vocals.
Lyrically, Saunders is talented. Her writing skills are impressive. She’s captivating from start to finish.
“I believe there’s something really beautiful about celebrating life and just taking in the moment. Free takes me back to simpler times when I was younger and there were less responsibilities. It’s when a day at the beach enjoying the sunset and watching fireworks was really important to me. I’ve come to learn that it’s these experiences with the people in my life that matter. It’s important to slow down and soak in these quality moments. We need to make time to be free and this single is a reminder of that,”says Saunders.
The song is accompanied by a lyric video. It looks incredible.
Saunders says, ”We wanted to give you visual content that would better tell the story of the song and we even included some clips of me singing the song from home.”
The artist delivers once again. Her art is next level.
Free has all the ingredients of a summer hit. It’s definitely worth listening to.
You can stream Free on SoundCloud, Spotify or YouTube!
