‘Heavy’ is an emotional reality check for listeners of all ages. Ayer’s poignant lyrics find a way to subtly strike at the hearts of both millennials and baby-boomers with pinpoint accuracy. The post modern production sets the mood while the soaring vocals and raunchy guitar riffs seal the deal. For this release, Chris has collaborated with the hottest up and coming writers LA has to offer, including producer Keith Varon (Federal Empire, Nightly, Lindsey Stirling) and top-liner Jessica Vaughn (Laces, Charlotte Sometimes, BRZY). This trio of talent is proving to be a lethal combination of songwriting and production. Listen for yourself!
