Vancouver, BC-based singer-songwriter Hayley Wallis has unveiled a video for her debut single, “Coffee Cup”.
Relatable and moving start to finish, the multi-talented artist’s rich, textured tone soars across the soulful and poignant pop anthem that softly encourages and supports reaching out for help.
“I allowed myself to fall into a very vulnerable place with this song,” Wallis shares of the track’s origins. “I truly believe music is therapy, and I wrote ‘Coffee Cup’ while struggling with my own mental health during these trying times.
“I find it important to be honest with my songwriting so that it may resonate with — and hopefully help — others on their life’s journey.”
“Coffee Cup” was produced by David Hodges, recorded by Nathan Turner, and mastered by Jon Tornblom; the video was directed by Drei Media, and filmed on unceded traditional and ancestral territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
