Brooklyn Artist BAYLi Announces 'SUMMER' Mixtape, Shares Debut Single "MYOB: Or Whatever"Read More
Born and raised in Bed Stuy, 24-year-old BAYLi has never been one to hold back, placing her at the forefront of the “new Brooklyn.” She unabashedly incorporates her perspectives into her music with confidence, charisma, and style, blending fierce melodic hooks with a punk rock attitude and a hands-on DIY approach.
From rock to pop, r&b, hip hop and soul, Bayli has always possessed a diverse musical pallet, contributing to the early success of her band, Rolling Stone Artist-You-Need-To-Know, The Skins, who Rick Rubin signed to American/ Republic Records in 2016 and went on to earn praise from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Complex, and The FADER.
Since 16 years old, BAYLi has gone from scribbling on pages to commanding stages and working alongside the likes of Justin Tranter, The Heavy, D.R.A.M., Daytrip, and more. With a penchant for substantive and empowering songwriting, BAYLi embodies a 21st century artist. Her music channels an ultramodern hip-hop aesthetic, each track touching on a different side of the spectrum: one sounds like energetic, hook-filled Spice Girls pop, and the next like SZA's smooth, empowered R&B.
BAYLi's ‘SUMMER’ mixtape is her first body of work as a solo artist and the result of years spent writing, recording, and fine-tuning her craft, creating tracks that defy genre. Tracks like "Problem" ride the passionate line between lust, love, and hate, while "Kid" was written as an ode to a generation, serving as a reminder to stay in the present. Although many of these songs took significant time to perfect, one of the mixtape's standout tracks "Underneath" came immediately to BAYLi, finishing the song's entire structure in only three hours.
“I’m all about liberating fans and empowering my community by evoking a sense of togetherness,” BAYLi says. “It’s that sense of inclusivity that inspires and allows me to express my emotions through my music in their most raw and genuine form.”
BAYLi's Vision Statement:
Take a vacation from your everyday life and enter the wonderful, colorful and wild world of BAYLi. Her upcoming SUMMER Mixtape is an introduction to the artist, where you learn about her sentiments on break-ups, love-life, the struggles of being an upcoming artist, parties, problems and her deepest rooted insecurities. Although this body of work includes uplifting summer anthems like “MYOB” and “Out For Love”, it also totes introspective pieces like “Underneath” and “Problem”, where Bayli gets vulnerable and reflects on, not just the flaws she sees in her lover, but she address that she has her own flaws too, maybe even more. Through this collection of music BAYLi takes the audience with her on a search for self-love, where each song has its own shift in mood, in a seemingly complex way, much like we are as humans. BAYLi says, “I hope that this record is as empowering for listeners as it was for me for create. This is the first time in my life that i decided to take a break for all the noise and distractions of the city, and the industry, to find myself. I truly feel like i am FINALLY coming into my true form as an artist, which ive been working toward for over 7 years of developing in the music industry. I’ve never felt more energized and excited to share my music with the world” This is only the beginning of GLOBAL things for BAYLi and her career.
We could all use a fresh start! First stop : BAYCATION.
