BLAIR ST. CLAIR Drag Race Alum releases debut album
“CALL MY LIFE”
Fresh from her emotional turn on Drag race season 10, Blair St. Clair (aka Drew Bryson) has been busy dominating the music scene and gaining hordes of fans. Having been voted “Top 20 New Artist” by elite music platform VEVO following the release of her premiere single and music video, “Now or Never,” which has reached 1.7 million, she hopes to enchant her fans with album Call my Life.
“Call My Life is a mixture of different elements that have personally affected my growth and have helped me not only find but OWN my inner voice,” said Blair. “I think of this album as a novel - each song is a chapter in my life and each lyric is one page closer to the end of this volume.”
All for pre-sale orders on all platforms include “instant gratification” tracks “Now or Never” and “Call My Life.” The full album will become available on all platforms on Friday, June 29, 2018. The music video for “Call My Life” is available on VEVO.
What inspired you to write an album?
Call My Life has been such a special project for me. I love music. They say in theatre that when you have too much emotion to speak, you sing, and when you have too much emotion to sing, you dance! Music has always been my way to escape and to emote what I feel.
Why that title? What does “Call My Life” Mean?
Call My Life is a mixture of different elements in my life that have personally affected my growth and have helped me not only find but own my inner voice. Now I’m using that voice a little more literally. The song “Call My Life” is a metaphor for the busy, worldly lives we lead versus the simple moments we forget. I’m trying to call attention that sometimes the most glamorous life of all isn’t outwardly driven but comes from living a happy life.
How was the writing process?
I love song lyrics. Every lyric on this album was written specifically for a reason- some silly and others a bit metaphorical. I think of this album as a novel - each song is a chapter in my life and each lyric is one page closer to the end of this volume.
Your last music video, for “Now or Never” has done extremely well. What was the concept behind the video for “Call My Life?”
The concept for the music video for “Call My Life” came from this idea- what if we show how glitz and glam doesn’t equal happiness, but a full life actually comes from a deeper meaning? The lyrics “Call my life; here I am; I’ve been waiting for you” refers to the idea of waiting for fame, while “Call my life; take a chance; ‘cause I know you’re real too” symbolizes the chance one may take at fame to risk losing everything that may have been real in life.
