BRN welcomes Baywud (pronounced bay-wood), a L.A. based indie artist, musician, and songwriter, to the playlist with two tracks. “Hold On To Me” was written with Rune Westberg, the song was initially inspired by a friend of Baywud who had lost her mother in a car accident. It was written for anyone feeling lost or broken and knowing it’s okay to reach out for help in times of struggle. The latest single “(We don’t have to ) Walk Alone” came at a time we can all use uplifting messages of hope. It was written remotely with Westberg during the pandemic and reflects on the current state of the world; a world divided by race, religion, and politics. It is about uniting, putting our differences aside, and learning to love each other despite our many egos.
