CLAY is an LA-based R&B/Soul singer-songwriter from San Francisco, California. Not too long ago, she released a music video for her “Orange” single.
CLAY – “Orange”
“Roses are red and I wish I could see them bloom. But all I see are orange hues and all I do is think of you. Now you’re stuck in my head and I wish I could sing the blues. But all I sing are orange tunes and all I do is think of you.” – lyrics
CLAY seeks to use her voice to make music that reflects what’s going on in the world. Music that moves people and sparks conversation. She hopes that in delving into herself, her own experience and truth, she can open up space for others who feel the same.
‘Orange’ contains a relatable storyline, sweet soul vocals, and an enjoyable instrumentation embedded with a delicious soul bop.
“I wanted to write a song about Donald Trump and this is what came into fruition. It has since taken on so many additional meanings. The color orange is often associated with joy, light, and happiness. And to me, given the current social climate, through all the hate, discrimination and injustice, these sentiments are hard to feel. This song is meant to be sung with two middle fingers up and a big smile on your face, as sometimes all you can do is either laugh or cry. While writing it, I did both.” – CLAY
