- Lying To Myself Bailey Coats 3:09
Alabama native Bailey Coats is a pop artist with a voice and style ready to captivate the hearts of millions globally. In 2017, Bailey began working with vocal coach Robert “RAab” Stevenson (Justin Timberlake, Dave Matthews, Rihanna, Pharrell Williams, etc.). In 2019, Bailey started working with VP of A&R and co-head of Urban Music at Arista Records, and Grammy-award-winning producer, Khris Riddick-Tynes (Ariana Grande, Kehlani, SZA) to provide his expertise and experience on her upcoming projects.
On January 31st, 2020, “Stand By You” by Jac & Harri was released by Revealed Recordings which features Bailey as a vocalist on the dance track. Later on that year in October, Bailey released her debut single with The Rascals titled “Stranger Things” and has gone on to amass over 100k+ streams alone on Spotify. Throughout 2021 and 2022, Bailey continued to release numerous singles, but chose to focus on various songwriting opportunities during this time including her contributions to “Clarity” by ZOE Music which has gone on to amass over 200k+ streams on Spotify.
To start off 2023, Bailey will release more singles leading up to an EP set to release later on this year in addition to several features and collaborations with other artists throughout the year. Bailey strives to be a positive influence on all ages both on and off the stage and she especially desires to be an empowering role model for young individuals everywhere. With a diverse catalog and an ambitious work ethic, each of Bailey’s songs reflects her authenticity and passion as an artist and an individual.
Bailey wrote “Lying to myself” with veteran producer of The Rascals’, Khris Riddick-Tynes (also known for his work with Ariana Grande, Kehlani, and SZA), who also had a hand in producing all the songs on Bailey’s upcoming EP, and Republic Records artist Amanda Reifer (known for her work with Kendrick Lamar). Bailey wrote this song about a real-life experience of putting aside her ambitions and passions for the the sake of making someone else happy.
Worrying about potentially missing out on life, she realized that she had evolved and was no longer the same person she was when she started her romantic relationship. The end result is this lyrically honest track that Bailey hopes encourages her listeners to embrace the truth in themselves and pursue their passion, even if it’s not the easiest choice.
