After years of playing shows and putting out music, CRAY today has finally released her debut EP, seasons change and so do i. It’s been a long year for the Vancouver-born/LA-based artist already, both personally and professionally. Through all of the trials and tribulations, she’s come out with this 7-track, deeply personal expression of herself and it shows. When asked about the inspiration behind the EP, CRAY shared, “This EP was written over a year and half period. The first half of the EP was written when I was in a relationship and was struggling with being okay and happy and the end half I wrote when the relationship ended. It’s very much like a diary and that’s why the artwork is hand made and the songs have dates next to them to explain the journey of when I wrote them.”
She adds, “This EP is almost a story of falling out of love with someone and back into love with yourself. It’s angry, sad, hopeful and powerful. My inspiration for this is directly from my experiences and my writing, each song is personal and true to me and the writing process was emotional for me but very therapeutic as well.”
