I always appreciate songs about standing for yourself and believing in your strengths. “I Don’t Need Anyone”, the first single by Darrian Gerard, a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentist from British Columbia, Canada falls in this category.
“I Don’t Need Anyone” is a great song, well written – the hooks are there, at the expected places but still feel fresh – and cleverly produced. The song is catchy but doesn’t feel formatted for commercial radios. Its indie-pop vibe reminds me of some of Alanis Morisette and Angels & Airwaves music.
I like the fact that Gerard played all the instruments, sang and produced the song – she proves her point, she doesn’t need anyone. To me this shows how strong a direction and vision an artist has on their own music. It also is a proof of raw talent which I admire.
For a first impression, this girl makes a strong one and I can only wonder what’s next for Darrian Gerard. One thing for sure, she’ll stay on my radar.
It also helps to stream and share their music; you can obviously find it in the following Playlists: Debut Bands (Off The Radar), 12 New Songs This Week , Less Than 1,000 Followers, Fresh Singles, Female Rising Stars and Indie Only,.
