Indie Rock Artist Faye Explores Unrequited Love

Indie Rock musician Faye has released her latest single “Alexandra.” The song is about being in love with someone you can’t have and it is now available on VMN Music.


In an age of heavy production, Faye embraces an authentic garage sound with a focus on lyrics and a raw vocal that blends with smooth electric guitars and drums as she sings of Alexandria, the girl we’ve all wanted to be at some point in our lives.

 
 

“This one night, I came back from hanging out with the guy who was in love with Alexandria. I was really sad because he would tell me all of these things, compliment me, and basically lead me on, and then run right back to her,” says Faye. “But I sat down — it was like, 1 AM, and this idea for a song popped into my head which was to not make it about me being sad or losing the guy but to revolve the story around her. I wrote it in about 15 mins. It’s definitely one of my more vulnerable songs.”


“Alexandra” was written and performed by Faye and produced by Jon Fintel at Relay Recording and features Jon Leonard on guitar, Jared Knutson on guitar and drums, and Jenna Jaworski on bass.


Faye is an indie-pop award-winning musician based out of Columbus, OH. Faye began her performance stage career at age 6 as the youngest act in her school talent show. Since then she has gone on to compose over 100 original scores, teach herself guitar, win numerous talent competitions, become an avid music business entrepreneur, joined many music associations and created her own band.

 
 

When Faye crafts her vulnerable music she draws deep inspiration from the abuse she faced being the victim of a parent who may have Munchausen by Proxy. Having escaped from that environment Faye is left with scars that have since manifested into songs. She credits music for keeping her sane. That and the dream of using her voice, music and story to inspire others in similar situations and in general. All in all, music is where Faye finds true freedom and she hopes others will find that same freedom in hers.


Fayes embraces the influence artists such as Nirvana, Chris Cornell, Halsey, Pearl Jam, Taylor Swift, Jojo (and many others) have left on her. Her vocals lend themselves to pleasant, sultry, velvet tones that have been assimilated to that of Norah Jones and Sheryl Crow. Faye's original score "Pink Dress" was selected in 2018 as a semi-finalist in NSAI's national Top 40 contest. Recently she became a semi-finalist in the Unsigned Only International Songwriting Competition out of over 10,000 submissions.
