Ironically, immediately after publishing our Top 10 Singles of 2019, we quickly have a 2020 contender. In fact, it’s the first entry in our 2020 Spotify Playlist!
“The main point of my music is for people to feel something.”
Growing up on Long Island, New York, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist (guitar, piano, drums, and ukulele), Julie Bouchard, began performing while attending Penn State. Her subtle, angelic style turned heads, left positive impressions, and before you know it she was regularly gigging.
Now based in Bastrop TX, Bouchard has recently released a new single, the elegantly endearing, acoustic ode to love, Stay Awake.
“This song is about the need to spend every second possible with someone before it’s too late.”
Three different finger methods come and go as Julie’s tender vocals ebb & flow, sharing her heavy and heartfelt thoughts on the beautifully transient nature of relationships, love, time, and life.
Stay with me until the daylight breaks
For if you leave today then let’s just wait
And watch the sunrise just one more day
The moon would wait
To go away if you’d say you’d stay
Stay awake until the daylight breaks
And pretends it’s not really one more day..”
The production is authentically rough around the edges, and perfectly minimalist in its execution. It’s just lovely, and we look forward to her next single, slated for release in February 2020.
An acoustic iteration of Avril Lavigne meets Michelle Branch…
