I have been listening to SHY Martin’s ‘Same Old’ for almost 30 minutes now and I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon.
While I listen, I’m also reading all the press material about this talented artist. I’ve learned that her songwriting catalog has gone on to generate 2.5 billion Spotify streams including credits on ‘First Time’ by Kygo ft. Ellie Goulding, ‘(Not) The One’ by Bebe Rexha, ‘All We Know’ by The Chainsmokers, ‘I Wanna Know’ by NOTD (ft. Bea Miller), as well as songs for Jess Glynne, Astrid S, and ALMA, among others.
On ‘Same Old’, SHY shares a bittersweet personal story of moving away to music school and the subsequent breakup with a supportive lost love.
“My whole life changed after I moved, I lived the dream he’d always supported, and I got to see the world we’d both dreamt of. For a long time I thought I wasn’t allowed to be hurt or miss him because I was the one who left. Today I know that sometimes it’s just as hard to be the one who has to leave, if not harder.”
What I love about SHY is her honesty, her openness, and her ability to write songs like this:
I am eager to hear what’s next.
