Rising Los Angeles songstress Shaylen unveils the video for “Own Way” today, the lead single from her debut EP Highs and Lows out now via The Heavy Group/Republic Records—watch HERE!
Of the video, Shaylen says, “The video for ‘Own Way’ is pretty straight forward. We all struggle with saying no. Saying no to a toxic ex, saying no to substances, saying no to media addiction etc. I always find myself doing well and then I get in my own way. The struggle is real folks.”
The song, produced by Jonas Jeberg [Selena Gomez, Panic! At The Disco], is an empowering anthem about changing yourself for the better, with the relatable lyrics, “I gotta get out of my own way.”
Stay tuned for more from Shaylen this fall!
Hailing from Dallas, TX, vocalist and songwriter Shaylen is both equal parts veteran and neophyte to the music industry. A former pop group member turned solo star, Shaylen became classically trained in piano and took master classes at the world renowned Septien Entertainment Group (home to other superstars like Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato); and after a short-lived stunt in a successful global touring group Shaylen found herself moving to Los Angeles to re-start her music career. While working multiple jobs and pushing out her music on social media, she began to create a sizable buzz in the industry. But it was through her songwriting and producing skills that she found her true identity, inking a publishing contract and collaborating with up and coming EDM producers on Soundcloud. Fast forward to a major deal with Republic Records and the release of several breakout singles, this is the story of a rising powerhouse who is back…for the very first time.
