A long distance relationship comes with its challenges, the main being the distance itself. Nashville-based singer, songwriter and keyboardist Elise Hayes, her experienced this first hand and that formed the inspiration for her latest single, “New York City”. This is a beautifully done indie-pop song with a rhythmic and mid-tempo instrumentation.
“This song is a true story. In my own relationship, we are both touring constantly. I have a fierce desire to be independent, but missing someone makes you so vulnerable at the same time. Sometimes you’ll fly to New York City on a whim, or do something out of the blue just because you miss your person.”Elise Hayes
“New York City” was written and produced by Elise and Danielle Blakey. It follows up her previous singles “Giving Up” and “Float”.
As a musician, Elise, who is a Berklee College of Music graduate, has previously had success touring with country star Carly Pearce as a background singer and keyboard player. Her songwriting role has also seen her penning songs for other artists — and also film/TV.
