Gillian Heidi - 'Fray'
A slow yet gorgeous piano ballad steeped in emotion; that delves into a relationship that's slowly falling apart.
At only 16-years-old, the Boston native singer demonstrates raw vulnerability through her bristle vocals and subtle rhythms as she savours the final moments. In her own words, she says: "I really tried to convey the feeling of when something is just beginning to fall apart, but it hasn't gone down in flames yet. The song is emotional and raw, but not angry."
'Fray', like many of Gillian songs, is both lyrically emotive and powerful as she uses reflective lyrics, clever pop melodies and rich vocals to portray the chronicles of her life. With coronavirus on the horizon, Gillian hasn't let the obstacles stopped her releasing music about experiences that so many of us connect with.
Since appearing onto the scene with her debut EP 'Unfiltered' and her hit single 'What It Felt Like'- tallying 200K Spotify streams - Gillian isn't letting her age get in the way. With her debut album, 3AM on its way, Gillian is quickly claiming her spot as a pop newcomer to watch.
