How young is too young to know things about life, have experiences, and want to pass that wisdom along? How old do you have to be to have valuable wisdom to share? As a songwriter, I believe that storytelling is a partnership between the artist/writer and the source of inspiration. The more we let that inspiration guide us, let our experiences and emotions dictate the stories we tell, the more we’ll have to share. When I sat down to listen to artist/producer/songwriter Brye’s latest song “Rather Be Alone” I was immediately struck by how well-crafted the lyrics were, and how relatable the song was.
A social media slam-dunk who prides herself on authenticity. A multi-talented drummer, Tae Kwon Do fighter, vocalist and guitarist whose skills are all shared online.

At just 19 years old, RoseeLu seems to have a sound way beyond her years which encompasses the alternative sounds of the nineties with raw and very modern pop. Not only does it manage to merge and blur the lines between age and genre but it also manages to have the widescreen, big sound of a Bond theme and the introspective lyrics and contemplation of Billie Eilish. It is a song that very much examines and celebrates the fact that there is nothing wrong with playing alone and spending time on your own. It says that is ok not to feel the need to conform.
