Frawley, the remarkably gifted 19-year old vocalist and songwriter who recently signed to Island Records releases an anthemic new song “Losers” which follows her buzzed about debut song “Hard Boy” which Paper Magazine included in their “10 Songs You Need to Hear This Weekend” roundup. “Losers,” which interpolates Beck’s 1994 hit “Loser,” is a catchy chant/mantra to celebrate misfits and is a part of a series of music and content to follow this summer.
On the track co-penned with Kinetics & One Love (Hailee Steinfeld, Melanie Martinez) Frawley, Frawley states, “If it makes me uncool to not care about my imperfections, then that’s okay, I’m a loser baby!”
Born and raised in New Jersey, Frawley has been immersed in music since the first time she sang “Mamma Mia” as a child. She made the transition from diligently studying voice, dance, and musical theater in school to posting videos on Facebook and Instagram. Influence and inspiration came from vocal titans such as Beyoncé and Christina Aguilera, and electronic visionaries like Avicii. Her Irish roots led her to the eclectic sounds of the Wolfe Tones, the Dubliners, and the Cranberries, while family trips to Ireland opened her mind to the Celtic cadences, energies, and undercurrents that inform her music.
Ambitious and driven at an early age, Frawley began uploading covers of Rihanna, Adele, Demi Lovato, and Tori Kelly to Soundcloud, organically generating millions of streams. Frawley’s take on Alessia Cara’s “Here” exploded with a staggering 12.8 million plays in 2016. Frawley’s profile grew, and she ultimately inked a publishing deal with First Access Entertainment and Warner Chappell. Her signing to Island Records followed in 2019.
“I hope listeners want to play my songs again and again,” she says. “I want them to feel so good and happy that they’re lifted. I’m just documenting how I’m growing up and living my life. I’m strong and vulnerable, and I love to love. I want to share this happiness in my music.”
