Hazy Shea is an Indie Pop singer/songwriter whose style sparked from the various music genres she was exposed to growing up. Although artists like Janis Joplin Lauren Hill and Lana Del Rey inspire her; Hazy Shea has a niche style that is evident in her music. Her single, "Golden Gates" combines her love for Psychedelic Rock, R&B and pop. With undeniable elements of funk as well, "Golden Gates" can be described as a jazzy funk inspired pop tune. Hazy Shea has been mostly compared to Lana Del Rey with the soulful sound of Adele.
When first hearing Hazy Shea's hit song ''Golden Gatez", I was instantly blown away. She shows her lyrical skills off with such confidence and professionalism. The beat pulls you in from the first pound of the drums and the piano has a heavenly feel. The lyrics depict the mind of a Gemini lost in love and dealing with their emotions and split personality. Sometimes in relationships you can feel insecurities and be torn into two directions. Hazy Shea reminds me of Ledisi, Alicia keys and SZA with the calmness of Lorde. Her voice and accent is a perfect match for the music. If I had to rate this song on a scale of 1 to 10, I would definitely give this one a 10. I believe it has the potential to become someones favorite and if she continues, she will surely be a star with the right opportunities and guidance.
