Raised in Dallas and now based in Los Angeles, 24-year old BAILEY BAUM has a knack for capturing the emotion of what it’s like to be a twenty-something woman navigating life, love, heartbreak, friendships, and everything in-between.
Like many of the best songs, the inspiration for ‘Bad For Me’ stemmed from a particularly crushing breakup. “I wrote this in 2020 with some incredible songwriters [Cameron Mitchell & Emily Fullerton] during the process of healing from a heartbreak,” Bailey says. “I wanted to fall back into the person because I missed them but I knew doing that was bad for me, which inspired the song.” The dreamy pop single sparkles with atmospheric production and Bailey’s signature ethereal vocals as she captures the familiar rollercoaster of emotions we experience as we try to fix a broken heart.
‘Bad For Me’ will join past singles, ‘Over It’ and ‘Take Me All The Way’ on Bailey’s debut EP, ‘Over It,’ slated for release on July 30th via Next Wave Records / Ultra Records. The 5-track EP is a raw emotional story of young love, packaged with ethereal soundscapes, captivating melodies, and vivid lyricism.
Explaining the reason behind this project. Bailey says. “I want the EP to help people feel empowered to get ‘over it,’ while also acknowledging how important it is to let yourself feel everything deeply. No emotion or thought you have is invalid, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel of heartbreak. We all deserve to find happiness and peace and fulfillment and that all starts within yourself. I’m still learning and growing from my experiences, this EP is all about that process.”
