Newcomer John-Robert has released his debut EP, titled Bailey Barely Knew Me, and it's absolutely breathtaking.
The intimate five-song collection is anchored by the 19-year-old singer's stunning debut "Adeline" as well as new songs "Urs" and "Love Won't You Stay," the latter of which comes with a newly released acoustic video, filmed in his Shenandoah Valley hometown of Edinburg, Virginia, where he has been spending the quarantine.
"I wrote 'Love Won’t You Stay' when I was at a crossroad, searching for a sense of identity and purpose," says John-Robert. "At the time I was confused and frustrated to find myself between high school, and college, with no job; no plan. I began questioning my sheltered understanding of sex, drugs, and religion, while recognizing my co-dependent tendencies."
