With the hope of creating a voice for the LGBTQ2S+ community and others trying to find their place, Vancouver indie artist, Zoey Leven (she/they), aims to be a successful recording artist, defying stereotypes and expectations with her androgynous look and passionate voice.
Her fun and romantic single is a personal love song written for her partner, as a Valentine’s day present. It’s a great autumn tune, with light and breezy guitar tones, and a jazzier bass line to drive the song under some upbeat drums.
Watch and share the video for the song here:
“The songwriting process was really fun since I wanted to put a bunch of little inside jokes in the lyrics,” says Zoey. “I wanted to make my partner cry and laugh at the same time and it worked! My favourite line I put in is definitely the outro lyrics, when I call her a butthead. It definitely catches your ear! …It’s cheesy I know, but to this day I always look at her in the crowd when I play it, and it makes us both smile.”
