“I’d gotten a text from a dude that was like, ‘You can come over if you want,'” she recalls. “That if you want makes everything worse. And it’s 11p.m., so no, I don’t want to go anywhere right now.” With a pulsing low end, Bailey Bryan’s new single “play w/ me” will rattle your speakers, but the cut actually began in the same fashion as most of Bryan’s songbook: guitar in hand, sitting on the floor of her bedroom. “I was already sitting there with my guitar-the one I got when I was 12-so I started writing it.”

Buoyed by warm, ‘90s R&B uplift and a skittering beat, the kiss-off to a guy who won’t quit playing games illustrates a remarkable pivot in musical perspective for the 22-year-old. Bryan may have first broken out with an acoustic lean, but full-fledged pop runs deep for her: “This is the first time I can listen back to what I’ve written and feel like, this is stuff that I just went through,” she says. “And these are sounds that feel really cool-and really me-in this moment.”

Bryan, a native of rural Washington State, first moved to Nashville in 2016 with dreams of Music City stardom and to pursue her passion of songwriting. Following her buzzy debut single, “Own It,” she quickly became an Artist to Watch (Rolling Stone, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly) while earning praise from the New York Times for her “rich songwriting.” But the newfound confidence in vision on “play w/ me” was hard won. “I’ve hesitated and gone in circles about music before,” she explains, “sometimes for a really long time. I’ve done things that I thought other people wanted to hear so much that, by the time I’d have a body of work, it didn’t feel like it was all the way me anymore.”

COVID Policy:

All attendees must be fully vaccinated for COVID (proof is required via vaccination card or photo of vaccine card on phone), or show proof of a negative PCR COVID test within 48 hours preceding the show. Proof in all cases must be accompanied by photo ID. Full COVID policy here.

      I’d love to see her “Own it” her story of stardom and song writing can truly remind all us 90’s girls that were being played and strong along what a 90’s heart break really was like.

    We got married on Labor Day so we need somewhere to go and celebrate. This would be perfect.
