Shaylen goes vulnerable in “Forgive Myself”

One of the perks of being a curator is that you get to witness artists mature out of the hype of their debut single and becoming a full-fledged stars. Shaylen is, for me, a case in point. Since her “El Dorado” debut, the LA-based singer-songwriter has continuously stood out with her unrestrained sass and unapologetic energy.

Her newest single “Forgive Myself” captures a more emotionally vulnerable Shaylen. Co-written by Jackson Foote, the song is about self-forgiveness.

The artist says “I wrote ‘Forgive Myself’ when I was in a really tough spot mentally. It’s all about my personal struggle with self-forgiveness. We are often taught the importance of apologizing and forgiving others but not the importance of forgiving ourselves when we mess up. I invented apologies, so I know all about it…

The airy guitar and simmering synths that drive over the mid-tempo beats add to the song’s emotive edge.

“Forgive Myself” is lifted off of Shaylen’s planned full-length debut which will drop via Republic Records.
