FAMILIAR ROADS

RELEASED 27 NOV 2020

Elly Wild takes you on a roadtrip with her new release ‘Familiar Roads’

Familiar Roads is an empowering feel-good singersongwriter piece with soaring guitar melodies and captivating vocals. The lyrics take you along through the story and make you feel as if you’re riding shotgun along with Elly Wild. The track fits perfectly in the indie-folk genre with country and pop influences. The soulful vocals of singersongwriter Elly Wild give the song a fulfilling kind of vibe, comforting and charming its listeners, while empowering them with inspirational and positive lyrics.

Elly Wild released her second single ‘Familiar Roads’ on November 27th 2020. Her first track ‘Sister of my Soul’, was released earlier this year, accompanied with a video that was shot in Thailand. The singersongwriter was travelling South-East Asia when Covid hit, and she had to return home in April. This is where she worked on Familiar Roads, and released a video which was shot in Belgium.

 

The singer grew up in Belgium where she studied classical music as a hobby. She was cast to play in several big musicals, such as Oliver! and The Sound of Music. In 2015 she joined a symphonic metalband – Gallia – with whom she’s currently working on their second album.

 

She felt drawn to release her own music, in the indie-genre, as she is an award-winning poet with a passion for lyric-writing. Wild wants her music to be hopeful and inspiring, writing from her own experiences battling mental health and how she has overcome her own demons.
