After kicking off their 2023 to deliver the BBC Introducing Scotland-supported single 'To Miss You', as well as European shows with Calum Scott, and appearances at Zermatt Festival and The Great Escape, Scottish singer-songwriter Blair Davie returns with their empowering new offering 'Lovely'.
Written and produced alongside Joe Rubel, 'Lovely' cements itself as one of their most triumphant releases to date. Dedicated to the trans community, the song stands as an anthem for self-acceptance and discovery, calling to those struggling with their identity to feel completely unapologetic about who they truly are.
Speaking about the track, Blair said,
"For as long as I can remember I’ve suppressed and hidden parts of me I didn’t want the world to see. The world can be so unkind to things that are different. I never spoke about it with anyone and had become so used to being someone I truly wasn’t that I barely even thought about it. Then one day last year I watched an episode of Queer Eye about a transgender person just letting themselves be who they are and celebrating that and it awoke something in me. Being unapologetically who I am can be terrifying and difficult but every day that I try, I find that I shine a little bit brighter.”
After introducing themselves with a flurry of exciting singles, including the highly-praised ‘Stairs’, ‘Platform 10’, and ‘Him, Hymn’, the latter being their own unique personal approach to coming out to their family and friends, 22 year-old London-based Scottish born and raised singer-songwriter Blair Davie has been tipped as one of the most anticipated new artists on the rise right now. As a seasoned performer who has been writing music and fronting bands since they were a teenager, Blair’s rise can be pinpointed to their intimate songwriting that feels more honest than others in their field.
Blair Davie has been announced as support for Sam Fisher on his upcoming UK and European tour.
