Over the past year, Swiss Pop-whizkid Liam Maye has been working relentlessly on his songs, honing his skills as a songwriter, resulting in a stunning first body of work. Overthinker is an excellent example for Liam Maye’s creative work and the variety in his songwriting: Whether Pop, Funk, Spoken Word or Ballads, there is nothing that this versatile musician wouldn’t want to have a go at.
Despite the diversity in his songs they all find common ground in his soulful voice and witty lyrics.
Liam Maye describes the realisation of the record as follows: “The idea behind ‘Overthinker‘ was born during a difficult phase in my life when I was forced to make a decision in order to change things for the better. However, the inner pressure made me feel limited in my judgement and so I was afraid to make the wrong decision. As a result, I began to rack my brains about it and suddenly I found myself in a spiral of thoughts with no way out. So I started to write it all down and all of a sudden I had about thirty song ideas ready to go. Four of which actually made the record. I really put everything of myself into every word, every sound, every melody, every chord, every little detail of those songs and I hope people will feel that and can connect with my songs.”
But Liam Maye is only just getting started. There’s already some exciting things in the pipeline for 2020 and we will surely hear a lot about this promising new artist in the near future!
