Mary Duff releases her long awaited new single “Crayons and a Canvas”.
The new recording, written by Nashville writers Kent Maxson and Randy Finchum, is a song about being true to yourself above all else. Produced by Mary Duff‘s long-term musical director Steve Milne, the release had the input of a number of accomplished musicians both in Ireland and the USA.
“Crayons and a Canvas” will be featured on Mary Duff’s forthcoming album, which is two years in the making. The album mostly consists of original material compiled from a diverse range of award-winning Nashville songwriters.
Commenting on the new single, Mary Duff says:
“‘Crayons and a Canvas’ is the first release from my forthcoming album which has been two years in the making. It’s a song about stepping outside the box, living your life in colour instead of in black and white, following your own dreams and being true to yourself.
As a performer, it’s very easy to be pigeonholed into a specific genre. People usually categorise me as a Country singer, but over the years I’ve recorded material by artists as diverse as Patsy Cline, Vera Lynn, Frank Sinatra and Beverley Craven to name a few, plus a lot of original material.
So, I suppose this new song is my message to younger people starting out in the music business or following a dream in general. Be inspired, be creative – but most of all be yourself!”
