Bailey Bigger Wants Us To Know She’s In Love – And It’s ‘You, Somehow’

With lyrics like “I love you in the kitchen on a Tuesday night” and “I love you on a weekend by the firelight” it’d be easy to dismiss Bailey Bigger’s song, ‘You, Somehow’, as simplistic; but the song is so much more than that.

A bluegrass style track with a homespun vibe and a backbeat that further adds to the song’s pleasing warmth and holds it all together, ‘You, Somehow’ should prove a hit for Marion, Arkansas artist Bigger.

The song tells the story of a couple who will work their way through whatever problems they encounter. It’s idealistic and idyllic, but you get the feeling that Bailey really would make the effort, and go the extra mile, to make sure that the relationship survives. Instrumentally it’s also a lot deeper than at first glance, the wide ranging musical elements work together to create a whole – the aforementioned drums work well with the guitars, as well as the piano, which is gently sprinkled into spaces where there’s no, or next to no other instrumentation. It’s like an sonic representation of the relationship in the song: each member works hard to ensure that the entire song works.

Of course, this isn’t Bailey Bigger’s first rodeo; still in her very early 20s the singer songwriter did her first gig in a diner back in the 7th grade, and the lyrics to ‘You, Somehow’ showcase her as a consummate storyteller with many a tale to share. She was only 9 years old when she picked up her first guitar, and within a week she was writing her own songs. At 17 Bailey won “Memphis’ Best Song Of 2017”, with her original composition, ‘Wildflower’, and she’s been recognised by a wide range of media publications, and performed on many festival and venue stages.

Bailey Bigger’s debut album, ‘Coyote Red’, is set for release on March 25, and I for one will be looking forward to hearing it.
