California native Daisy Gray has been quietly amassing a fanbase from her bedroom, and now, she unveiled her debut song “Saviour.” The accompanying video which premiered this morning on V Magazine, said “Daisy Gray may be new the music scene, but her raw talent and down to earth mindset are her building blocks to stardom…”
“Saviour,” driven by her hearty, beyond-her-years vocals, is inspired by a breakup from her first love. After reading her most recent diary in the studio, the song poured out, standing as a raw and casually beautiful remembrance of what could have been. The accompanying video, directed by Darren Craig, captures the moody and raw nature of her debut release.
The San Francisco-born and raised singer-songwriter took an interest in music at the age of six, teaching herself to play piano through feeling, and crediting her synesthesia, or the sensation of seeing music as color, as her guiding light. At age 14, Gray became a viral hit after her cover of Lana Del Rey’s “West Coast” gained traction, racking up 2.5 million views to date, under her given name Grace Vardell.
Now at just 18 years old, Daisy Gray has collaborated with a team of producers and writers including Linda Perry (Christina Aguilera, P!nk), Kuk Harrell (Rihanna, Mary J. Blige) and Grammy-nominated Kuya Productions, to unveil a body of music she’s penned throughout the years.
