Lois Morgan Gay releases her debut single ‘Don’t Be That Guy’ which is now available on all music streaming platforms.
The track is influenced by a mix of performers including Lianne La Havas, Amy Winehouse and Aretha Franklin. ‘Don’t Be That Guy’ explores the inner monologue of yearning more from someone rather than just being friends.
“Have you ever gotten to that point in a relationship where it is going really well and you are hopeful that it’s going to work then…BANG! They are not ready for anything “serious” and then end up being just another failed relationship? That’s what this song is about haha” Lois says.
Lois crafted the single with musician/guitarist Jack Louis Rennie who helped with music arrangement and also plays guitar on the track alongside Meelie Traill on bass, and Max Blunos on drums. The track is produced by Ben Robbins.
The London based singer/songwriter was born and raised in Bristol, she delivers smooth R&B with a soulful feel to her voice, writing about heartbreak, relationships, and yearning. Her music is vocally led, having been heavily inspired by the likes of Adele, Aretha Franklin and YEBBA. Music has always been a huge part of Lois’ life, there was always music playing in the house growing up. Lois began her performing career in theatre and then discovered her love for singing and writing at the age of 14. She states “Telling a story and expressing my feelings and inner thoughts through my music enables me to connect with the audience and that is the best feeling in the world”.
Lois is currently in the line-up of the final to win a £100,000 record deal with Alpha records, she will perform at the Indigo at the O2 Arena on March 30th where she will debut this song live for the very first time.
