The first time I got the chance to hear Craig Stickland’s ‘Leave Me To The Wild’ EP was when he performed it live, while opening for Alessia Cara on her ‘Know-It-All’ tour. The minute he started singing the first song I was automatically hooked because the lyrics were so incredible and meaningful.
Every song on the ‘Leave Me To The Wild’ EP is amazing and has its own message behind it. I’ve listened to the entire EP a few times now and I can safely say that my favourite tracks are “Be My Queen”, “Deja Vu”, and “Break Every Rule”. These three songs I can relate to based on past experiences, the lyrics are very moving and captivating.
“Be My Queen” is one of the few tracks on the EP that is upbeat. The minute I heard it, it was automatically stuck in my head! Not just because of the beat, but the way it was pieced together musically and lyrically. This song shows the listener that you can do anything you want for that certain someone, and shouldn’t be ashamed of who you are and what you do in life.
After listening to this country/folk inspired EP, I automatically became a fan and I am looking forward to what else Craig Stickland has to offer. I would recommend this 8-track collection of songs to anyone who is a fan of music, because the genre is so unique and the songs are relatable.
