The Toronto-based, alternative/indie artist, Delyn Gray, shares her latest single, “Daddy’s Love,” a guitar-heavy rocker.
Gray said about the song:
“I want people to feel empowered to deflect other people’s defeatist projections with this one. I love this song, man. It’s gotten me through some serious mind-screws. It’s a relief. Don’t ever let anyone dictate what your relationship with your passion, loved-ones, and yourself look like. It’s not up to them and you must be pretty cool if people are trying to keep you from reaching your full potential, ha! Be fearless, be unapologetic, and maybe take the high road instead of calling out their daddy issues…? Keep doing you. I hope you find something for you in this track.
I worked on the ‘Daddy’s Love’ video with the incredible team at Persephone Media and they took this song to a whole new world. So stoked for everyone to see their incredible work. This team is one to watch! More material to come very soon.”
“Daddy’s Love” features Delyn (vocals/percussion production), Chris Macfarlane (guitar), and Kyle Texiera (bass/moog).
Delyn Gray is a Canadian artist; Toronto-based, to be exact, that aims to break barriers via extraordinary music. Her voice is unique, rooted in the contemporary, with “a unique depth and richness to her voice of timbre.” Her emotional maturity shines and not only distinguishes her from her peers but also from more well-established artists, as well.
Lyrically, Gray focuses beyond the typical love and relationships themes that are ablaze throughout current commercial artists. She doesn’t sit well in one genre: stylistically, she combines current R&B and electronic vibes and weaves them with the “edgier rock elements of the early days of Grunge.” These elements result in an accessible, fresh, and exciting sound, unlike anyone has ever heard before.
“I’ve had a lot of people tell me ‘no’ over the years or ‘yes, if…’. Maybe I wasn’t ‘ready’ then (whatever that means), but it hasn’t stopped me from honing my craft and finding new avenues to explore. All I can do is keep chugging along authentically and unapologetically. I’m convinced the right people will come along to help me make this whatever it wants to become,” Gray reveals.
