This Electro Pop Artist from Long Island Offers a Safe Space for Emotional Frustration. - Listen to Jaime Deraz: Lie
Was she really just lying to herself when she said he was worth loving in the first place?
Jaime Deraz shows a distinct shift in her typical cadence with new track "Lie." Moving away from her signature sweetness, "Lie" combines a sense of indifference and detachment with a harsh, direct lyrical tone. A driving pulse pushes the momentum forward as we explore the awkward meeting between unearned trust and easy betrayal.
Prone to heartbreak, Jaime Deraz is a singer-songwriter who crafts lyrics based on her own real-life experience. A native of Long Island, Jaime's blissful nature pairs with a melancholic vocal presence to create a sentimental ambivalence that is complemented by her writing style. Jaime’s diverse range of inspiration includes Bon Iver, Fleetwood Mac, Julia Michaels, and The Japanese House. Her talent for musical creation is directly linked to her ability to capture emotion in a raw and visceral way. Jaime hopes that her work can serve as an outlet for heartache and despair, and offers her own beautiful heart with every song. Acting as a caretaker for her mom with a motor neuron disease that is still undiagnosable to doctors for the last four years has exposed Jaime to an inner pain that she copes with through her songwriting. "Lie" is a pop-savvy mix of electronic vibes and unhinged frustration, with a hidden layer of self-incrimination: was she really just lying to herself when she said he was worth loving in the first place?
