Upcoming singer-songwriter Bailey James continues to pave monumental waves amongst the global scene through a unique musical magnitude & powerhouse vocals.
With “Finally Free” reaching 42 on the Billboard chart & songs such as “Devil Won’t Take Me Down” & “Better” (Ft Mia Morris) receiving immense support globally, Bailey is swiftly making her presence known.
Outside of her music, Bailey has also started her own mental health/suicide prevention awareness movement, The Finally Free Movement, in honour of her brother Zane, who she lost to suicide.
Not long ago, Bailey unveiled the brand new single “The Spell” & has kindly taken the time to speak with Fierce & Fabulous Revolution regarding her latest musical release. You can find the full interview below.
Hey Bailey, thank you so much for this interview. Can you start by telling the readers a little bit about yourself?
Bailey: I’m a singer/ songwriter based out of Nashville, Tennessee. I like to think of my music as therapeutic. I don’t just write to write; I write to make people feel something.
How would you describe your current musical style?
Bailey: Lots of influences. Rock, blues, soul, country. I started making country music, but as I got older, I listened to more artists like Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain, and you can hear their influence in my music.
You recently released the brand new single “The Spell”, which sounds amazing. How did the idea for this song come together?
Bailey: My family is from the Jersey Pines. My mom said she used to go see her grandparents in this little cabin in the woods, which was creepy. There’s much folklore around Jersey and the Pines too. They genuinely believe in those things, and I’ve heard some crazy stories. So I decided to write a song about it. The lyrics are for everybody to figure out on their own. 😉
How would you compare the creative process of this song to your earlier releases?
Bailey: I’m more comfortable in who I am now when I’m putting out a song than when I was 11. I had no idea who I wanted to be and felt I had to uphold a particular image for a long time. Now I just make music that feels good, and I think people will like or resonate with it.
Did you always plan to release “The Spell” as a single?
Bailey: Most definitely! I was in love with the lyrics.
What does this song personally mean to you?
Bailey: I’ve always thought of the Spell as more than just a song about witches and magic; a song about a strong woman and that divine feminine energy.
If listeners could take anything away from this song, what would you like it to be?
Bailey: To own your power! Be sexy, be weird, just do you.
Finally, is there a message you would like to share with the readers of Fierce & Fabulous Revolution?
Bailey: Just a huge thank you for having me today.
