Shayla McDaniel Shares New Single ‘Depend On’

American singer and songwriter Shayla McDaniel has just shared her brand new single Depend On, a retro soul cut about logingin for someone to depend on in a relationship. 
I am loving Shayla McDaniel's honeyed vocals which instantly command the listeners' attention to her relatable storytelling. Shayla's songwriting is quite natural and effortless, showcasing how talented of a storyteller she is. Apart from Shayla's gorgeous, soulful vocals I am very fond of the song's warm melodies that create the perfect soundscape for her storytelling to soar. 
Depend On is a song about longing for someone to depend on in a relationship, romantically, in business, or a friendship, after being hurt by someone you trust. As much as I may like to say I am great on my own, I would indeed like to have someone to depend on in a relationship. This message is nicely wrapped around catchy melodies packed with intricate guitar plucks nicely intertwined with a catchy beat that create an overall warm, laid-back atmosphere perfect for a chill day at home. Check it out below!



Speaking about the song, Shayla McDaniel said, 
I was in a jam when someone bailed on me. I was thinking in the shower and trying to figure out what to do. I said to myself, ‘I want someone I can depend on, like the kick on the one’s and three’s.’ Then I was like, ‘Dang! This needs to be a song.’ I just sang the lines to see what melody came out, and it stuck.
