Watch out for... Liam Bailey
There’s so much potential in soul music. Liam Bailey has that potential to reach millions and millions more with his music. There’s no denying his talent as his track titled, ‘You Saw The Devil In Me’ shows his creative writing style.
This soul song is an introspective and thought-provoking piano ballad backed by minimalist yet stirring string arrangements and gospel choral backing vocals, over which Liam Bailey bares his heart out, about facing his inner demons. Originally written by Liam himself, the song is very poetic and demonstrates how skillful the Nottingham soul musician is in creative writing.
The visuals for ‘You Saw The Devil In Me’ see Liam Bailey collaborating once again with James Beale, who directed the video for his recent single ‘Brother, Why You Gotta Love Her’ featuring Maverick Sabre. Filmed in Bulgaria, the visuals are stripped back, and allow for the record to take centre stage and grip the audience.
Speaking about the inspiration for ‘You Saw The Devil In Me’, Liam Bailey says, “I was trying to find a calm quiet space to think. At the time I was finding it hard to be real in my writing. The lyrics came about after quite an intense therapy session, where I was forced to be introspective and face difficult truths about how I'd been living. For the video, I was performing in Bulgaria, and once we saw how beautiful the country was, it made sense to film there – it feels introspective but there’s hope in it, and the sunrise landscape gives it a sense of rebirth as well”.
