The St. Ives born singer and guitarist kicks off her 2022 with the release of ‘Can’t Lose’, a fresh and vibrant take on alt-folk. Led by her soothing vocal tone, the new single is well-crafted, layered with warm guitar plucks lush vocal harmonies over an indie-leaning drum groove. The addition of the saxophone is a nod to Asbury Park’s own Bruce Springsteen, seeing Bailey channel elements of heartland rock.

When asked about the new single, Bailey described that “I was listening to a lot of 80’s east cost rock when I wrote ‘Can’t Lose’ –  Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, that kind of thing. I had in mind a real homage to the New York sound of that era, adding Michael Underwood’s incredible sax to the band really helped bring that energy. I even managed to sneak a nod to Carly Simon in the lyrics too.”
