“Smile! .. Because that’s what you’ll be doing after listening to this hidden gem from emerging Swedish singer-songwriter Derya. Straight out of the Americana songbook with an unashamed organic production reminiscent of Joni Mitchell and Bruce Hornsby supporting Derya’s angelic vocals. Authenticity strikes you from the first line and you will want to play this again .. and again.” Dutch Van Spall – Producer and BRIT Awards Judge
As I was on my way to get my coffee one morning I realized something…I don’t smile that often anymore…not since this whole pandemic started. And as I was thinking that, all of a sudden a short sentence and a melody that felt upbeat came to my mind.
‘Smile’ is about remembering to focus on the good things in life and not let the mind linger in the past. It is now available on all digital platforms💕
