Up and coming LA based artist Liv Ritchie is making waves with her authentically emotional music. She is a stellar songwriter who tells compelling stories through her music, stories that many can resonate with, which makes her a force to be reckoned with. Through the use of deep and light vocals, she seamlessly fuses her nostalgic melodies and beats with the honesty in her lyrics.
Liv’s latest release “Wake Up” is a dreamy track that in fact is about waking up from a dream where her ex was back in her life, as if they fixed all of their problems and were back together, everything was good, until Liv woke up from that dream. Upon waking up from that dream Liv realized that it was more of a nightmare than a dream, and it really hit her. She mentioned how the dream felt like going through the breakup again, which isn’t fun. She wrote down what the dream had felt like and waking up after it, thus turning it into the song “Wake Up”. This new release is a brilliant one, and one many can resonate with. It has a dream like atmosphere to it in the instrumentals and her velvety smooth vocals, which really make the song that much better. The whole idea around the song and how Liv hopes it’s perceived is to find comfort in letting go of people and scenarios that our minds make up.
