From popstar to indie artist, Swedish-born singer FAYE has made a tough transition in the music industry wanting to “use her vocals in a different way.” FAYE, formerly known as Fanny Hamlin, was introduced in the music scene at the age of 12 as the lead singer of Swedish girl group Play. Touring with Destiny’s Child and N’Sync, the girls were a global pop sensation successfully breaking into the coveted US market and selling over a million records worldwide.
FAYE emerged as a solo artist earlier this year with a new sound combining her pop roots with unexpected electro additions, strong vocals and heart-felt lyrics. “Water Against The Rocks,” is by far in a way her most musically ambitious project yet channeling Sia-like vocals and Ellie Goulding beats. FAYE’s honesty and emotion shines through making for a welcomed change from her days in Play. It is clear in listening to this electro ballad that FAYE has found her sound and her soul, with fans will soon follow. She may be indie now, but she’s got the pipes, the attitude and the experience to become greatly recognized once again.
