Souly Us brings warm light and healing when we need it the most!
Hi Ben and Kate, welcome to VQS, Tell us a little bit about you and your music.
We are country pop duo Souly Us from a coastal Victoria, Australia. We’ve been making music together in 2018.
What started as two band members became a love story and a musical journey that brings us here. In just 12 months we released 3 singles, a 4 song EP, an album and 2 music videos.
“The music we create together is from deep within us, our life experiences poured out into a song. The stories both of our souls have lived through.” – Ben & Kate
Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration for this new single?
Released 12/11/20. This song began forming in April 2020, right around the beginning of the pandemic and the lockdowns. We had taken time off work to isolate and we had been lacking inspiration. So much had changed in such a short period of time. We wanted to write a song to reflect that because it was not an easy transition but once everyone was experiencing together. This song happened quickly.
It was a therapy song that allowed us to pour our hearts out with the emotions we were feeling.
What was your vision for this song?
‘Everything Has Changed’ represents change and how life has changed during this process of COVID-19. Change is something we are familiar with, and through our lives we have had to experience a lot of it. While everything in the world may be changing, it is important to stay true to oneself.
We hope that we as artists are able to be an example of not letting the changes negatively alter who we are as people and that people can find comfort and healing through our music for years to come.
What is your favorite part of this song?
We are both self-taught musicians and this song let us explore and develop those passions. Writing together has brought us so much joy and the lyrics that Katie wrote for “Everything Has Changed” hold a special place in our hearts.
We draw from life experience as a huge inspiration for ideas for our songwriting.
Anything else we should know about it? Future releases? Upcoming events?
Hopefully, once life eases back into normality, we will be moving to Nashville,TN and pursuing a music career stateside. Until then, we will be writing and recording music together in anticipation of whatever life brings our way!
