Scottish pop artist Michaela May recently made the move to Toronto to further her music career. After working with power-house producers in London, New York, and L.A (Jimmy Napes, Simon Ellis, and Heather Holley), May is excited to share the lead single “1954” from her upcoming debut EP.
“‘1954’ is a song that represents empowerment and strength in a world where people can and will criticize your every move. I wrote the song out of frustration with old school societal norms that have no place in today’s culture. I wanted to write something that empowers people to live their life the way they choose. No matter what judgement or negativity someone faces, it’s possible to rise above it and (as cheesy as this may sound) just be who you are.
It’s a defiant, sassy song and it embodies everything I have wanted to say for a long time!”
Colourful synthetic production gives the song a danceable, upbeat demeanour as May proclaims out with the old, in with the new.
You can find more of her music through her YouTube page, and stay tuned for the EP.
