Sometimes you just need to go it alone. Having worked with labels and other various music industry institutions over the years, songwriter Chrystyna Marie decided she needed to take total control to achieve the pure sound she was chasing for her next release, free of outside influence.
The result is the Loaded Gun EP, out February 29th, which spans four tracks of liberated, raw, blues-inspired statements and confessions by the artist.
On the EP, Marie shares, “Breath is life; and life is music. I wanted to create music from personal experiences and true emotions. Something the everyday person can relate to and build strength from having been exposed to it. With a raw and gritty feel to emulate these experiences and emotions.”
The title track and lead single features Marie calling out to a lover she just can’t quite despite knowing how bad that person is for her in the end. Smoky and smoldering in the bridges and strong and searing in the choruses, Marie delivers a stunning performance on “Loaded Gun,” leaving you wanting more.
