Single launch of McGrath's track 'Conditions'
Upcoming emo pop/rock artist Jayden McGrath has just announced his debut single and accompanying video 'Conditions'. To celebrate the new release McGrath will be headlining at the Evelyn on 7the June.

'Conditions' was a collaboration with Dave Hunter of Band Factory Digital Media (Drown This City, Captives) and artist Joey Klarenbeek. The track is a mix of pop, rock and RnB and is engaging with its dark hypnotic notes. "Conditions is a track that came up for me in a rather dark period of my life. After some big changes, I started to question the meaning and purpose of my life. At the time it felt like every step forward sent me two steps back. Conditions is a kind of morbid acceptance of everything being dull for me at this point in time. Luckily since then, things have changed, " says McGrath.

Performing at the Evelyn 7th June

McGrath was born in Alice Springs but raised in Virginia, USA. His powerful vocals demonstrate his range as an artist and the accompanying video for 'Conditions' is visually intriguing and tells a story. The track deals with loss, inner turmoil, anxiety and the realisation that life doesn't always go according to plan. When McGrath wrote 'Conditions' he was dealing with a break-up and period of confusion in his life. To me, this is where magic happens - beauty is often born out of less than perfect situations. The lyrics are heartfelt, moody and honest and encapsulate McGrath's mindset at the time he penned the lyrics.

"To be honest it feels quite surreal to be releasing Conditions! It's been quite a long road for me to get to this point, and I have been lucky enough to accomplish a vague painting of my life through storytelling and song writing. I feel like this track, being one of the first tracks I produced as an independent artist, is a fitting opening scene for what's to come from myself in the future," says McGrath.

If you're looking for an inspiring night out and your chance to hear 'Conditions' live, head to the Evelyn on Friday 7th June.
