“I’ve always loved the lyrics and performance of Olive B’s voice on that verse in particular, so I decided to build a new song entirely around them. There’s a certain emotion in what she’s trying to say that I felt needed to be brought to life. I played the guitar chords around that idea and the rest of the song sort of fell into place.

Not long ago, Layne Elizabeth was just a typical teenage girl with a big dream. For most of her life, her love of music and songwriting is what motivated her, and she hoped the world would one day hear her songs.

In January 2018, during a local radio interview, the host asked Layne who she dreamed of collaborating with. Her answer was Jake Scott, her absolute favorite singer-songwriter and producer. Layne actually had the chance to meet him backstage at one of his concerts she attended, and during their brief conversation, she worked up the courage to ask him if he would consider producing her debut album.
