Bailey Wiley - Single Review: Between The Lines

15 May 2019 // A review by Corinne Rutherford

Auckland based RnB sensation with the breath-taking soulful voice; Bailey Wiley has just released her latest single Between The Lines. This track gives fans a glimpse inside Bailey's mind as she falls in love.

The song, which is off her brand new self-titled EP, is silky smooth and sensual. Her vocal range and technique is indeed something pretty special. This talented lady from the Taranaki knows a thing or two about soul and funk having grown up with it and this shows in her musical choices.

Wiley has worked hard to get to this place in her life, she has already released three projects, travelled the word performing alongside the likes of Ladi6 and Jess B to name a few, headlined her own shows and featured in Fly My Pretties. There have been many festival shows, youth mentoring projects and recording with some of the country’s finest producers and musicians.

Between The Lines, has a captivating driving melody, Bailey Wiley’s enduring vocals are like velvet rich and warm. Lyrically the word ‘smitten’ comes to mind when she describes the song. Personally, I was enamoured by the song and by the artist.

Recorded at Red Bull Music Studios Auckland, Wiley wrote the track with Soraya La Pread and producer Isaiah Libeau (SWIDT's Smokey Got Beatz ). This is an enduring release, true RnB with a Kiwi flavour.

Rating: ( 4 / 5 )
 

About Bailey Wiley

Few artists come new to the game with such a fearless and complete approach to music. Bailey Wiley filters neo-soul classicism through modern, rightous production and true live musicianship. The star of the show is that golden voice – effortless and organic, it?s like having honey poured into your ears.

Her band are raw talent epitomised and bring the Rhodes out front from the outset, complimenting those flawless, whiskied harmonies with easy precision. Tracks like Fire and Cigarettes And Regrets evoke smoky, dimly lit bars and the ghosts of a thousand wasted nights. This is the kind of sweet soul that hurts your heart while its turning you on.

Made in collaboration with polyglot beatmaker and producer Swaren Veygal, IXL features six original cuts from two of New Zealand?s most exciting new
