Lauren Davidson is one of country music’s newest frontwomen full of spunk and femininity. Back in January of 2018, Davidson was featured as one of our first local New York country artist Swag Spotlights. She disclosed her influences growing up, her childhood theatre productions, her move to Manhattan, and contemplating her move to Nashville. Today, she is back with “Compass;” the second single off of the Love Ain’t Fair EP. “Compass” is brimmed with confidence and powerhouse vocals.
“Compass,” co-produced with Dave Ricco and Cristian Castro, is an upbeat, guitar-driven story of confidence fighting for love. She sings: “If we let love be our compass // Even in our roughest // Moments if we trust it, it’ll get us through // I ain’t scared of nothing // Let the storm start coming // and if the weights so heavy it’s enough to sink this ship // I’ll go down with it.”
Stated in a press release, Davidson shared, “I am so excited to get this second single off the Love Ain’t Fair EP out to you. We released the first single the title track – Love Aint Fair on Valentine’s Day and Compass is part 2 of 5 songs that I have co-produced with Dave Ricco and Cristian Castro which is a first for me. This song is really different for me story-wise than anything I have ever written and released before. Relationships are hard and anything but easy and that’s where this song comes from. It’s about wanting to fight for love when things are tough no matter what the obstacles are – let love be your compass and guide the way.”
Earlier this year, Davidson started Urban Country Jam, an event that highlights the rising country talent coming out of the tristate area. We are looking forward to celebrating the next Urban Country Jam once live music resumes.
“Compass” is now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released music here on our ‘New Country Music’ playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.
