RIANNE DOWNEY has shared her second EP ‘Come What May’.
Marking another step forward for the fast-rising singer-songwriter, the four-track collection explores mental health, relationships and personal growth in heartfelt fashion – demonstrating her growing prowess as a songwriter and performer.
The EP is launched with final single ‘Alright’ – a live favourite that comes armed with a message of reassurance and resilience for whoever may need it. A full-band effort, it’s an uplifting ode to a brighter future.
Speaking about the track, she said: “This came from a place of darkness, a struggle with my mental health and being able to articulate how I felt. I was acting impulsive and irrational, distancing myself from people and being bad with money. I sat down to write a song and, in the process, something clicked. ‘Alright’ was a moment when I thought about my life and other people, realising things would be OK.”
Having bagged the Tennent’s Breakthrough Award at the 2022 Specsavers Scottish Music Awards, Downey is looking to build on this success throughout 2023 with a UK tour to look forward to – including sold out dates in Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds and her native Glasgow.
