Canadian Country Music Award (CCMA) nominated artist Shae Dupuy searches for purpose in a breakup with her new single, “Black and White.” Co-written with Kyle Rife and Jeremy Bussey (Jason Aldean, Brantley Gilbert, Ashley McBryde) and produced by GRAMMY-nominated Nashville musician, Derek Wells (Dolly Parton, Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton, Maren Morris), “Black and White” is now available via all digital retailers, listen to it HERE.
In the reflective new single, “Black and White,” the singer-songwriter looks for reason in a failed relationship that seemingly has no reason other than “it’s just not working.” Dupuy explores the difficulty in breakups that creates a sense of missing pieces or the lack of closure, as she expresses through lyrics like:
One of us could have been more mean
Could have said things we don’t mean
Kind of wish it wasn’t true
Kind of wish I hated you
The singer-songwriter delivers an aching yet still hopeful tune describing it as a “heartbreak song for the wishful thinkers.”
A recognized singer-songwriter from Canada, Shae Dupuy, has been splitting her time between Nashville and her home territory, Toronto, Ontario, over the last two years so that she can focus her efforts on writing and recording new music.
Showing an interest in music at an early age, Dupuy took vocal and guitar lessons at the age of eight, leading her to attend a specialized arts high school. The relatively unknown artist earned a name for herself in Canada when she released her first-ever single, “Grandpa’s Truck,” which garnered attention from CMT Canada, who named her a “Fresh Face Artist.” The momentum continued to grow for the ever-evolving artist, who has since garnered multiple nominations from the Country Music Association of Ontario (CMAO) for her songs, "Tin Man" and "Drink About It." Shortly after the release of her second EP, Brave, in 2016, she received a CCMA nomination for ‘Interactive Artist of the Year” in 2017.
Since moving to Nashville to immerse herself in the city’s songwriting scene, Dupuy has written a catalog of songs for her forthcoming full-length project, as well as songs for other artists. Her new music displays cultured vocal expression, storytelling, and a strong sense of identity and conviction, both as an artist and as a person.
Dupuy has performed at multiple festivals, including some of Canada’s top festivals at Cavendish Beach and Lucknow’s Music in the Fields. In 2018, Dupuy headed on her first tour, where she performed in multiple cities from coast to coast across Canada.
