Just in time for Christmas, Manchester based singer/ songwriter Abbie Ozard comes through with her charming interpretation of ‘Stay Another Day’. With just two releases under her belt, Abbie has already caught the attention of Blossoms via their Spotify playlist as well as a range of radio support and notable festival appearances, including Manchester’s Neighbourhood Festival.
Getting in the festive spirit, ‘Stay Another Day’ has been beautifully re-worked by the young artist, stripping back the instrumentation to provide a warm, atmospheric performance of East 17’s quintessential seasonal hit. Over this soft backdrop, Abbie’s pure, unfiltered vocals take centre stage wholly justifying the early excitement that is building around this emergin talent.
Taking influence from a range of modern artists such as Snail Mail and Fenne Lily, Abbie fuses Melancholic sounds with introspective lyricism throughout her work. Speaking on the release Abbie states “It’s the ultimate Christmas anthem and comes with an iconic crimbo video, the harmonies scream festive cheer so anyone who says it’s not festive is lying. The lyrics are so heartfelt too it’s like a Christmas hug in a song and I like hugs”
It was whilst studying at Manchester’s BIMM that Abbie was able to refine her talent as both a songwriter and a vocalist. With a full debut EP to be released in early 2019, Abbie Ozard is a voice to be heard.
