Matching vocal firepower with a message of romantic growth, the uplifting track marks the first look at an inspirational new talent, as Papa asks fans to step into the light of positivity.

Taryn Papa is a force of nature. She’s a fighter with a tireless drive in the pursuit of her dreams. A strong and soulful young woman with something to say, she’s got a fresh take on modern country music and a knack for writing songs that feel like anthems. Her bold and sultry voice is both inspired by and infused with the powerful vocal range of Martina McBride and the pop attitude of Kelly Clarkson. As a tenacious 16-year-old, Papa formed a band and started booking her own shows across her home state of Connecticut. With moxie to spare, Papa later pulled up stakes and made the move to Nashville determined to blaze her own trail, without a safety net, without knowing a soul and without a plan B. It’s her relentless drive that kept her going playing night after night in Music City’s honky tonks, as one of the few females fronting a band on lower Broadway. Papa put in her time honing her stage presence and trying out new material in front of live audiences. Papa spent the bulk of 2021 writing daily and focusing inward. Her debut single, "AWAKE,” puts a new face on the future of pop-country, offering a modern take that feels relatable and simultaneously fresh yet familiar.
