Toronto, ON-based singer-songwriter, Delyn Grey has released her debut video for her single, “Disappointment Girl”.
Delyn shares on the process behind the single,
“This song established my sound – and basically birthed Delyn Grey. For a few years, until April 10th 2017, I was writing Indie/pop music, but knew it wasn’t what I wanted. I was good at it, and tried my best to connect with what I was writing -but never could to the fullest. I broke down in a vocal lesson, the day before Disappointment Girl came out of me. I wrote lighter, pop genre music out of fear of disappointing those closest to me with songs of depression, darkness, unhappiness and dismay -which is what I was I stuck to creating what was safe and ultimately ended up damaging myself significantly in the process. It wasn’t until my vocal coach summoned my demons out of me, that I realized what I had been doing to myself. Disappointment Girl is me taking ownership of how I perceive myself and how I expect others to perceive me.
This song has evolved over two years, and I continue to find new, sometimes deeper, meanings behind my original lyrics. This song was co-produced with Justin Abedin, and Gavin Brown and their incredible talents brought this song to life.
This song taught me how to write for me.”
