On her debut project, Delacey spills her heart out with zero inhibition, speaking truth about love and sex and fear and strength. Released via HITCO—an independent label founded by legendary hitmaker LA Reid—the project centers on the Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter’s self-aware yet sharply poetic narrative voice, ultimately building a fascinating body of work. In bringing that batch of songs to life, Delacey worked solely with producer Ido Zmishlany, holing up in his Brooklyn studio and tapping into the potent chemistry the two discovered after meeting in a 2016 session.
Originally from Orange County, Delacey started writing songs and playing piano at age seven, mining influence from the massive vinyl collection her dad handed down to her. Breaking into songwriting with “New York City” (cut by The Chainsmokers for 2015’s Bouquet), Delacey later lent her lyrical and melodic finesse to tracks by artists like Demi Lovato and to Halsey’s #1 hit “Without Me.”
