Meet your new slide guitar hero in Forest Ray’s psych-folk single, Always

Forest Ray

The notion of forever may be farfetched, but Forest Ray’s title-single from their upcoming album, Always, melodiously exhibits the beauty in love persisting. The folky psych rock soundscape carries the finger-picking influence of the late and great John Prine as the psychedelic nuances freshen the familiarity under the honeyed timbre of Forest Ray’s vocals.

The soaring guitar slides bring an absorbing dynamic to the release, entrenching Always next to the roots of Americana while simultaneously bringing in the future of psych-rock. Forest Ray deserves to be equally as revered as Kurt Vile for their hazy and cathartic sense of soul that leaves you with no question over their sincerity. For your sanity’s sake, delve in.

The single, Always, will release on January 22nd with the official music video.

Out Of The Cold: Seattle’s Lauren Drake drops reflective 3rd single ‘Play Along’

Recorded and produced by John Lowell-Anderson, Lauren Drake shows us all that it’s vitally essential to learn that self-worth, love, and find your ultimate purpose, that is all interwoven inside your soul already as you just need to believe in yourself on ‘Play Along‘.

Lauren Drake is a Seattle, USA-based singer-songwriter and actor who studies at Pepperdine University. After her much-loved previous releases called ‘Malibu‘ and ‘Okay‘, we find a highly thoughtful artist in a contemplative mood with a song she wrote back in 2019.

She writes to fill a void of articulated emotions and shares her music in order to help others have their different feelings, emotions and situations become seen and understood.” ~ Lauren Drake

Showing great courageousness to elegantly navigate us into this emotional story that is so personal, Lauren Drake holds our hand with supreme care and guides us into her past life while also thrusting us into the future. This is a determined young artist who was lost for a while in the winds of change, but found her inner compass and now is so much more self-enlightened as she emerges victorious.

Play Along‘ from the Seattle-based indie singer-songwriter and actor Lauren Drake is a regret-filled track about wishing that you could just do it all again to avoid all the pain that really broke you down for a while. After a period of profound introspection, this is a deeply inspiring song that shows you that you can’t change the past and that is a good thing. Growing stronger and figuring out who you actually are when the chips are down, is the best way to see through the fake smoke and mirrors and into a better world that actually completes you.
