Artist: Renaissance Grrl – Happy When I’m Sad

Release Date: 5th of June 2020

“This song captures the feelings of being shut in your room for 3 months with music as your only friend. This single was written at a time of absolute isolation when there was absolutely nothing to do but music. Dark times, but the best of times. This is a song that everyone can relate to. Not only musicians but people who have only the voices inside their head to talk to.”

This song captures the feelings of being shut in your room for 3 months with music as your only friend.

Biography: Renaissance Grrl is the side project of 18-year-old singer songwriter Alannah Jackson from Bristol, known for being the lead singer/guitarist in the band Miss Kill. Renaissance Grrl writes dark and jangly alternative rock/ Garage songs fuelled with fuzzy guitar sounds from either an acoustic or sometimes an electric guitar with vocals described as ‘raw, gritty and angelic’ from fans. Alannah has been writing songs and living the dream of becoming a Rockstar since the age of 9. She is someone not to be missed and definitely one to keep your eye on for the future.
