Bailey Bryan Announces Debut EP!

By  | 

We’re so excited to hear Bailey Bryan’s debut album! Today it’s been announced that her debut EP on Warner Music Nashville, ‘So Far’, will be released on April 14th.

Produced by GRAMMY award-winner Dennis Matkosky, Bryan co-wrote each of the five songs in the collection that is not only her story so far, but also a blueprint for who she wants to be as an artist. These are her stories, presented in a way that allows one to make them his or hers. Followers on Instagram are treated to pictures taken from the road and studio, as well as unfiltered, no makeup shots. And her scar, it’s a striking, waistline to shoulder tops zipper that came after back surgery. It’s a symbol of Bryan’s greatest hardship but also one of the most beautiful things about her, which led to a greater understanding of how the world works, acceptance and honesty.

“This idea, which obviously I believe so strongly in, that the hardships in life, the things that are the hardest to come through are what kind of form the most beautiful things about us,” Bryan says. “If you listen to ’Scars,’ it was inspired by coming to terms with this giant scar that I have on my back and the fact that I love it now, it’s a part of me and it came from a really hard thing.”

“I do think the reason I’m able to feel and be positive on a daily basis is just because — especially in my writing — I prioritize honesty,” the singer/songwriter says, pointing first to “Own It” and then the other songs.
