PREMIERE: Laryssa Birdseye Releases New Single “Loser”

Heading back to Portland, we find our next artist Laryssa Birdseye who returns with her new music video for “Loser.” While the ultra classic Beck hit song deals with pretty much non-sense, this new song has a sort of a deeper meaning. As Laryssa comments:

“Loser is a song that I wrote when I was going through a difficult time with alcohol. I was stuck in this endless cycle of binge drinking that led to awful decision making, regret over said drinking and decisions, and then the repetition of all of it almost immediately after promising myself that each time was the “last time”. I woke up with another hangover just hating everything, and said the words, “you’re such a fucking loser” out loud. Then I looked at my guitar. Loser is a song about embracing the worst parts of yourself, not apologizing for where you are in life, and living out the destruction that you need to wage until you make it through to the other side. It’s an anthem for all the losers out there that feel the judgment everyone holds for them, and just not giving a fuck about it. It’s a challenge to the ideals of perfection that we all feel held accountable to. I’m not a perfect person, and I’ve been through some dark times, so I would never present myself as anything but the flawed person that I am.”

Portland, Oregon is a city ripe with musicianship, talent and creativity. Despite all the city has to offer, Laryssa Birdseye effortlessly stands out as one of Portland’s most captivating musical acts. Generating new fans at every performance, Laryssa has been gaining steady momentum with no signs of slowing the pace.

Self-described as a folk singer that accidentally began to write pop music, Laryssa uses humor and honesty to mesmerize her audience. Having struggled with addiction and an eating disorder, Laryssa’s songs reflect the turmoil of heartbreak, dependency, regret, and the persistent strive towards healing, making her originals relatable and her hooks infectious. Her soaring vocals are filled with flawless riffs and soulful melodies. Best known for her biting wit and clever lyricism, Laryssa stands out best as a songwriter, offering tremendously relatable content—often serving to inspire, often breaking your heart open as she spills hers.

Laryssa has been active in Portland for the past two years, with notable performances at venues like the Doug Fir and Mississippi Studios, appearances on Portland Radio Project (99.1 FM) and has been featured on KGW’s Mic Check. Her new music video for her single “Loser” will premiere in late August 2017 and will be one of 12 songs on her first full length record, “So What” set for release on September 14th, 2017.
