Bethany Ferrie’s music career started when she sent voice notes to friends as a teen. Since then, she’s come a long way, with her vocal style containing influences from Taylor Swift and Lewis Capaldi. She released her latest single ‘Stayed’ earlier this year.
I love ‘Stayed’ because I think Bethany’s voice is stunning. It’s got a tinge of country, but enough to help her stand out. The atmospheric synths and the minimalist guitars help give the vocals space to breathe. The acoustic guitar is beautiful because it reflects the isolation theme of the track.
‘Stayed’ is a beautiful pop song. The introspective lyrics and the sparse instrumentation flow seamlessly, and I love how this gives the song character.
