Lauren Lizabeth

Singer-songwriter, Lauren Lizabeth, highlights the highs and lows of an off and on again relationship with the new single release Wreck It available on all streaming platforms

“It was bittersweet writing this because it forced me to come to terms with the inevitable end. With every line I wrote, it helped me realize that sometimes you can love someone so deeply, but ultimately they aren’t the person you’re meant to be with,” says Lauren. “I wanted to capture the love I felt for the relationship, but also the pain of having to let it go.”

ALYSSA TRAHAN’S MEMORIES NOT DREAMS

Up-and-coming singer/songwriter Alyssa Trahan is making waves with her first release of the year, “Memories Not Dreams.” After signing a publishing deal in 2018 and releasing her brand of captivating music over the past year, Trahan is back with a single meant to inspire.

 

The song emphasizes making the most of our limited time on Earth. Written on a songwriters retreat with Kent Maxson and Adam James Deiboldt, she sings of aiming to accomplish all of her goals in order to turn them into fond memories.

Trahan explains, “this song is so special to me because it has a message that every single person can relate to. I hope it will inspire people to go and live their dreams or even go and call someone they haven’t talked to in a while, because life is shorter than you think.”

“‘Me and Luke’ is all about how much fans LOVE Luke Bryan! This song was so easy to write with Alex and Leslie, because we realized Luke is always with us… at the lake, in the car, especially down in Panama City Beach soaking up some sun. The three of us related to it so much and I cannot wait to hear what the fans think,” said Karissa Ella.

The up-beat ode, co-written with Leslie Satcher and Alex Seier, pays homage to the admiration country fans around the world have for the one and only, Luke Bryan. Reminiscent of Taylor Swift’s, “Tim McGraw,” Karissa paints a picture of how Bryan’s music has been the soundtrack to many of her favorite memories. From crushing on his trademark tight jeans with her girlfriends, to listening to him croon while driving with the windows down, Luke’s music is a constant.

Their debut single, ”All At Once," is packed with big hooks and jarring rhythms that build to an anthemic and unforgettable chorus. The sensual sounds of their voices, mingling and mixing as they trade off between verses and find harmony together in each chorus, create a primal, heart pounding chemistry. From the booming bass beating beneath them to the soft piano breakdown that highlights the true magic of their vocals, the track perfectly captures the feeling of being on the cusp of falling for someone new.
