Chandler Bay has inked a deal with San Diego-based record label Pacific Records. The indie-pop singer-songwriter will release her first single with the label, “I See You”, on October 12th, 2018.
“I’m ecstatic to be working with Chandler and all the creativity she brings to the table,” says Brian Witkin, CEO of Pacific Records. “Most importantly, all of us at Pacific are looking forward to sharing her unique sound with the rest of the world.”
Originally from Massachusetts, Bay’s nomadic upbringing instilled in her the life experiences which, when infused with the raw emotion of her vocals, produces an artful yet painful story expressed through her music and lyrics. In 2016, Bay was discovered in Nashville by Jacob Underwood of the platinum selling band O-Town.
“Chandler’s voice stopped me in my tracks while I was walking the streets of downtown Nashville. I immediately had to introduce myself and get her in the studio with my team in San Diego. After the first recording session it was apparent there was something special about her, and we all agreed we needed to do more, and fast. She’s a prolific writer and a powerful artist in every aspect of her life. It’s time for the world to see what she has to offer,” says Underwood.
Bay has since released a series of YouTube covers including a duet cover with Underwood of Gnash’s “I hate u, i love u” which has garnered nearly 30,000 views. With the new support of Pacific Records, “I See You” will showcase Bay’s heartfelt, powerful vocals and storytelling as she sings a ballad dedicated to her soon-to-be-daughter, Everest, and her beautiful new insight into being a mother.
“I wrote this song as a love letter to Everest after seeing her for the first time flipping around in my tummy, and watching her beautiful heart beating away,” says Bay. “The chorus explains how the love between Jacob and I has caught on fire, and if we were walking before, we are definitely running now! I hope when other people listen to this song, it brings them a sense of deep-rooted love and purpose.”
“I See You” is slated for a October 12th release.
