Born and raised in California’s Bay Area, Lizzy Paris’ unique and authentic sound is a blend of things both old and new. Following her debut single, Lizzy now returns with a warming soul-pop offering ‘Crash n’ Burn’. A feel-good bop with a vintage flair, ‘Crash n’ Burn’ is infused with a groovy rhythm which compliments Lizzy’s soothing vocals and sunny disposition. ‘Crash n’ Burn’ is an empowering release for Lizzy, who wants to bring the voices of more black women to pop music.
“There was an urge to give voice to more black women in pop spaces. We’re not all one-dimensional, and I’d love to contribute to the underrepresentation,” Lizzy shares.
On the inspiration behind the release, Lizzie adds:
“Written with bright and witty lyrics of optimism, Crash n’ Burn is a breezy pick-me-up. It’s a colorful smile with the smell of coffee in the morning and the sun shining. It’s reminiscent of those early ’70s, 80s soft/yacht rock records. With the world recovering from the pandemic, now more than ever felt like the right time to give people much-needed relief. The song is a gentle reminder of keeping track of the state of your spirit and mental health. We were inspired to make the world smile again.
‘Crash n’ Burn’ follows the release of her hugely successful debut single ‘Don’t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight’, which has already garnered over 136k streams on Spotify and landed editorial playlist placements.
