For the UK’s Becky Lawrence, the music industry provides a space to collaborate and support other artists as they do her. Originally on the musical theatre path, Lawrence attended the prestigious London School of Musical Theatre where she felt overwhelmed by the competitive environment. Compelled to the storytelling aspect of country music and artists such as Dolly Parton, Reba, and Stevie Nicks; she chose country when asked to perform and instantly knew it was what she wanted to do. Taking control of her own life, she started song writing and released her debut EP “What It Takes” in 2017.
Using her time wisely in quarantine, Lawrence learned to play the guitar and released her single “You Say.” About her struggle with mental health and her partner’s support through it all, the song reminds us that there are a lot of good people out there. Lawrence tells us, “While practicing the guitar one night, I began thinking about my partner and the six wonderful years we have had together. After a string of short-term and failed relationships, I’m so grateful to have enjoyed his companionship for the past few years. I hope that he is the one I spend the rest of my life with.”
