Hollyn Announces Coming Release of 6-Song EP “Bye, Sad Girl”

Published

on

Gotee Records’ HOLLYN has announced her new 6-song EP, bye, sad girl., that will release on September 6. The lead song from the project, “i feel bad for you,” is available today. This song was co-written and produced by Cole Walowac (NF, Aaron Cole). Leading up to the release in September, a new song will be available each month. Check out the animated audio video below.


Hollyn explained why this project is so important to her.

“I often reflect on the times I’ve been alone… processing alone… those moments where you’re trying to figure it all out. We have all been there, like our feelings are waves 20 feet tall, about to capsule us and never let go,” she said. “In those moments, all I wanted was a hug… for someone to look me in the eyes and let me know I was seen, I was loved, and I could make it through whatever was overwhelming me. If I wouldn’t have had people who volunteered to be there for me, acknowledge my feelings, and empower me, I don’t know where I’d be today.

“Recently, I thought to myself… what about the girl who has no one? What is she going to do when grief swallows her and abandonment stings her soul? What if she doesn’t know there’s a God who loves her, or even refuses to believe in that kind of thing? How do I give her a hug? How do I comfort her? Sit with her. Even though I’m thousands of miles away and we’ve never met?

“By sharing my story, my grief, my abandonment, my freedom, my thoughts, my emotions… that might just bring her that sense of comfort she’s been waiting for. Because, you see, we are not alive to fix people’s problems, but to empower and love alongside them in the way they should go.”

That’s what her “bye, sad girl” project is all about: empowering others to share their story.

On the night of her release party/announcement, she and some friends took black and white portraits, with a watermark, handwritten statement of “bye, _____.”

WANT TO JOIN THE POST? HERE’S HOW!
1. Post your photo!
2. In the caption, you fill in the statement “bye, ____.” with whatever resonates with you. It could be anything from student loans to anxiety. It doesn’t have to be your current situation… it could be a story from the past you’d like to share, something you are about to do, or whatever is relevant in your life at the moment. Tell as much or as little of your story as you feel comfortable! This is your story, tell it how you want it. If you don’t have a personal story to share, just post the album cover!
3. At the bottom of the caption, don’t forget to use the hashtag:  #byesadgirl

“As you share your story, remember that there’s someone out there who is going through the same things you have walked through,” Hollyn said. “They will be inspired to keep going, open themselves to growth, and, ultimately, feel like someone understands them.”

Watch “No Capes”


Rahkii is a pervious ArtSoul Spotlight artist known for her singles “Beautiful” and Zoom. At just the age of twenty-five, Rahkii has already begun to make an impact on Chicago as a music artist. Her broad roots in music stretch further than any genre can define. Her talent was discovered when she began to sing solos in the Youth Choir at her home church. From there, Rahkii emerged onto the urban music scene by way of her education at Columbia College, where she received her Bachelor of Arts in Music Theater. Discovering her voice through gospel music sparked a curiosity of various styles which she explores through her own music.

Rahkii is influenced by artists such as John Mayer, Janelle Monae and Mali Music. Taking inspiration from the diversity of the local music culture, she supports the “no genre” movement.

Some highlights of her professional career includes placing her single “Beautiful” as the theme song on the Lifetime TV series American Beauty Star in September of 2016, performing alongside great artists such as OBY, Walking on Water and Pocket Radio. She has also worked as a background vocalist for talented artist such as R.Kelly, Eryn Allen Kane, Patti Labelle, Jenifer Hudson and more.

While this list only shows a small portion of Rahkii’s accomplishments, it highlights her “jack of all trades” personality as well as her ambitious and hardworking nature. In addition, it also shows her love for collaboration of all types of music, which is why she is joining the “no genre” movement. Rahkii is an emerging artist who wholeheartedly believes that she can affect lives in a positive way with her music. She’s been blessed by God with a talent. She has a great power within her and she’s on a mission to make change. She is a Super Hero.

While Kevon Carter is most known for his funny videos on social media, music was his first love. Having released his first album a decade ago and composed songs for Bishop Paul S. Morton, Jonathan McReynolds and more over the years, Carter has stepped back into the artist room to release another album titled Finally (I Felt That Music).

The 16-track gospel album has already hit no. 3 on iTunes and Amazon Christian music charts! 

His press release states: The project features tender ballads such as “Through the Pain,”  “You Survived” and “Open Heaven.” There are fast tracks such as “Be Exalted” and the retro groove, “Give Him Praise.” However,  “Check Their Fruit” which is based on Galatians 5:22-23 is getting attention. “It’s a fun song with a message, a real message,” he says. He adds that “Always A Reason” is a simple ballad that explains that there’s always a reason to praise the Lord. “Again” is another fine ballad. “It’s a self-reflective song about the guilt and shame that comes with making poor decisions,” he says. There are also three brief comedic interludes sprinkled throughout the set. 

When God has a calling on your life, it’s hard to ignore it. Believe it or not, Carter had no intentions of being a comedian but he stumbled upon a way to combine the talent with his passion for music. 

“I decided to do a funny song about vocal runs to post on Facebook. I knew nothing about making videos online. When I posted the video, it went viral. I started getting so many friend requests that my personal page reached the max to accept friends,” he says. “After going viral,  I decided to do another video weeks later and that video also produced thousands of views. People would comment about how much they enjoyed the skits, and they encouraged me to do more and so I did.  As I kept going, I slowly began to see that the comedy and humor was also a ministry.”

Take a listen to Kevon Carter’s Finally album below. Then, keep scrolling to take a look at some of his funny videos.
