Singer-songwriter, bassist and actress, Heather Youmans has penned her uplifting new song, Shine as a love letter to her younger self.
“It’s everything me now would tell me then: you are beautiful, you are strong,” says Youmans, who recorded the track during the pandemic this year.
On the track’s message, Youmans says: “Hold your head up and honey, let your hair down sometimes. I want this song to be an anthem for not just millennial women like myself, but ladies everywhere. Life’s hard right now, and I just hope this song and video gives everyone a much-needed dose of optimism and happiness.”
All of the sessions for Shine, except for the lead vocal tracking, were done virtually – from the production and session musicians, to the mix and master. Youmans engineered the background vocals you can hear in the post-chorus herself in her home recording space.
“Thankfully, due to technology, it’s more possible than ever to make great music from home. You just have to get resourceful!”
