“Lyrics-wise, she’s such a classic songwriter in my mind, but her production is advanced,” Sirah explains. “The two coupled creates a whole different world where her music lives for me. It blows my mind when someone writes a song that for all intents and purposes has already been written — all roads lead back to love, money, faith, loss, etc. — but Ellie has a way of painting it differently. She pulls out pieces in her songs I’ve never seen. I’m always hearing something new no matter how many times I’ve played it.”
As for tracks in particular? “It depends on the day, but I think ‘My Blood may currently be my favorite,” she says. “It cuts.”
