Discovery: CJ Wiley

CJ Wiley is a Canadian alternative country singer songwriter who has caught my attention through their new track Running Backwards.

By Graeme Smith

What stood out for me most about Running Backwards was its storytelling lyrics. CJ brings their world to life through her words, narrating the exciting everyday antics of a friend. A bright instrumental arrangement combines rock and country influences into something that isn’t quite either, but absolutely compelling to listen to.

CJ’s debut EP All Our Love is set for release this summer and promises more stories of teen nostalgia, relationships and finding humour in hardship. You can give Running Backwards a listen below.
