This week Shayna has partnered with StarPulse for the exclusive world premiere the music video for “Wake Me When It’s Christmas.” This energetic video sums up the excitement that comes along with Christmas and the desire to be with the ones that you love.

When asked about the inspiration behind creating an original holiday song, Shayna shared, “The thing that has always been the most definitive for me about Christmas/the holidays is time spent with loved ones. As people begin to come and go from our lives with greater frequency, the preciousness of our time with the people we love becomes more and more real. I wanted to write a song about that. We all know what it’s like to count down the days until we get to see someone we really miss. It doesn’t matter what religion you are- I think this experience is universal. Love is often… always… what it comes down to.”

Shayna Leigh Premieres “Drive (Back to Where You Lived)” Video – WATCH NOW!!

Shayna Leigh, DUMBO

New York City’s rising talent, Shayna Leigh, is getting set to release her second EP, ‘Hey Shayna Leigh,’ this coming fall. Today the pop singer-songwriter has revealed the full video for the project’s first single, “Drive (Back to Where You Lived),exclusively on Artist Direct. The song was co-written with songwriter Peter Zizzo (Celine Dion, Vanessa Carlton, Elizabeth Gillies) and produced by 2x Grammy-winning producer Michael Mangini (Run DMC, Joss Stone, The Corrs). “Even when, or especially when, things get difficult,” says Shayna of the meaning behind the single. “And you feel like you’re not making any progress, you have to keep your foot on the gas… Keep moving forward. That’s the only way you’re going to get to where you’re going next.”

“To me, ‘Drive’ has always been about facing life’s obstacles head on — about choosing to move forward in even the most difficult times, so I really wanted the music video to reflect that,” Leigh told us. “This video is the story of how life can be heartbreaking and scary, how it requires us to put ourselves out there pretty much every day, but that through the disappointments, we will inevitably face, we can find the courage to move forward. Through our hardships, big or small, we become a stronger person. We become who we are. I like to think this is something we can all relate to. It is my hope that the video reminds you of something that happened to you growing up… so that you can take a second and see how amazingly you overcame it.”- Shayna Leigh
