We were not ready to share her euphonious sound with the world yet. IYCM doesn't gatekeep, but we wanted the magic she oozes all to ourselves for a moment.
However, holding artists hostage is not how we do things over here, so without further ado, we introduce Amber Ryann to the rest of the world with her track, Happy You Came Around.
Amber Ryann produced, composed and wrote Happy You Came Around, alongside her co-writer Sol. Then Jack Heidelman jumped into the process to mix it, with Dave Fore mastering it, and it's safe to say the end product is straight-up dream team antics.
Her intention when writing Happy You Came Around was to create something that resonated with her genuine personal truths.
"I thought of all the tribulations I’ve gone through regarding my mental health and my battle with depression throughout my life. The song addressed the people in my life who came around when I needed them most, even when I wasn’t much fun to be around, even if I just wanted to stay inside and watch movies." - Amber Ryann
It felt like a significant risk to release such raw yet relatable content, she recognised that perhaps someone else out there needed to hear this to feel better, which is what drew her to music in the first place—the ability to make a difference in someone's life.
"Growing up listening to so much music that I could relate to made me feel a lot less like I was all alone in this world sometimes." - Amber Ryann
Happy you came around is three minutes and twenty-five seconds of pure honesty and vulnerability,It gives the listener a glimpse of the mind's roller coaster ride while battling depression.It speaks of the loneliness, the void, and the unworthiness one can feel, but then there are moments when you reach the surface to take a gasp of air, and someone comes around, and you are exposed to the light, the brief yet powerful feeling of happiness, and this is what keeps you going.Amber Ryann we are happy you came around!
