A beautiful anthem of hope for the current crisis we are consumed in, award-winning artists Crys Matthews and Heather Mae share the same sentiment we are all feeling in their new single “Six Feet Apart”.
The song begins with just a simple piano melody as Matthews passionately sings, “So much fear. So much chaos. You’ve been asking who’s gonna save us.” This line seamlessly describes our desperate pleas for action.
As stunning strings are slowly added, there is an empowering message of hope that shines through leading up to emotive harmonies in the chorus as Mae joins in. “Six feet apart, won’t stop us. Don’t need to hold you in my arms. I still know you in the dark.” This compelling lyrical message is one of strength and togetherness illustrating how even from six feet apart you can still remain close to someone. The track continues on with more of Mae’s striking, pop vocals a la Ingrid Michaelson.
Both singer-songwriters and activists, Crys and Heather are known for their rich, warm vocals making a perfect collaboration. Crys is an Americana folk artist with huge drive and ambition who has been compared to Tracey Chapman. Through her earnest music, she touches on themes of life, love and social injustice. From playing small intimate venues to now major festivals, she has built a loyal and dedicated following.
Heather Mae is a uniquely innovative pop artist with an exquisite textural tone. With powerful lyrical motifs such as mental health, LGBTQ+ issues, self-love and woman’s rights, she connects with listeners through her fight for equality and profound personal experiences. A queer woman who is open with her mental health struggles, Heather prides herself on fostering strong bonds with her diverse fan base.
