Pop Country songstress Remy Garrison balances youthful exuberance against a promising but uncertain romantic future in “Young and Reckless” available today. Listen HERE.
At a time when an abundance of caution dominates most daily activities, it is liberating to think about taking chances. With a nuanced, crystalline vocal, Remy sings with authority about a desire to be carefree in the throes of young love.
“It has a fun, upbeat melody, but I loved the idea of ‘young and reckless,’ as a lyric,” said Remy. “It gave me a Taylor Swift ‘Fearless-era’ vibe. That era resonated with me and I connected to those same feelings when I heard ‘Young and Reckless.’ Who wouldn’t want to hear and feel that again?”
And like her musical inspiration, Remy is a narrative driven songwriter with an open book on her personal life. An engaging, free thinker with her heart on her sleeve, she isn’t trying to filter the world. She is driven to represent what she is experiencing in a way that is vulnerable and relatable.
Produced by Forest Glen Whitehead (Kelsea Ballerini) and written by Blake Bollinger (Jason Aldean, Darius Rucker, Mickey Guyton), Kayla Conn, and Ben Caver (Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, Kane Brown, Lauren Alaina), “Young And Reckless” is the first step in a new direction for Remy and her evolved sound.
Remy has been singing since she could talk. She took voice lessons as a child, sang in plays at school, and started writing her own songs at age 13. At 15, she started making trips from Birmingham, AL, to Nashville to write songs. She made the permanent move to Music City at 18 and soon started writing with some of Nashville’s top hitmakers and playing some of the city’s most venerated venues including Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge.
With three successful pop singles and videos already under her belt, Remy, now 21, is nimble enough to cross the fine line between pop and country and focus her talent on the genre closest to her heart and roots, country music.
“I am authentically myself and no one can change that,” she said.
