Atlanta based singer-songwriter Erin Kirby has released an anthemic new single entitled ‘Practice Girlfriend’, combining heart-felt lyrics with a strong sense of empowerment. Her powerful voice has a huskiness to it, which is complemented by the explosive, buoyant drop of the chorus. This is a dance-inducing track with emotional depth and vocal capability – in other words, the perfect pop song.
Speaking of her new release, Erin says: “‘Practice Girlfriend’ is an upbeat pop song that I hope makes other girls feel empowered. The lyrics tell the story of a real life dating experience of mine, and stresses not settling for anyone that does not treat you how you deserve. This boy I was talking to used used to tell me that it was okay that he was seeing someone else at the same time because she was just his “practice girlfriend”. I was telling Nate Flaks and Noah Longworth (who co-wrote and produced the track) about the situation, and this upbeat pop song is what naturally arose; I hope it is able to be a supportive anthem to some.”
Erin Kirby’s powerhouse vocals have drawn comparisons to Carrie Underwood and Jessie J, and earned her recognition as a John Maxwell Rising Star and Jezebel Magazine’s songwriter of the year. This pop prodigy made it into the Top 60 of American Idol and the top three on Showtime at the Apollo with Steve Harvey, as well as receiving notable critical acclaim. Now with her empowering new single ‘Practice Girlfriend’, it’s undeniable that Erin Kirby is a songstress poised for great success.
