Piper Connolly Makes A Twisted Play For Your Attention

The newcomer delivers a message of freedom & self-discovery in her debut single.

Piper Connolly gets a few things straight in her debut single Twisted Play — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

The first release from the rising 13-year-old Arizona singer-songwriter and performer is about breaking free from an identity forced upon you and becoming the real you. Connolly shines as a promising newcomer, effortlessly fusing rock and pop to create an enticing soundscape that captivates listeners.

“I wrote this at a time when I was feeling really stuck musically, being someone I wasn’t, just to make others happy,” she reveals. “It had started to really mess with my mental health, and I decided that I wouldn’t do it anymore. I need to be true to myself, musically, however that shows up. Twisted Play is that declaration.”

The song carries a moving message of freedom and self-discovery, encouraging listeners to embrace their identities. With its passionate melody and empowering lyrics, it tells a story of escaping from norms and daring to be authentic. The powerful vocals express a longing for expression, turning the music into a symbol of individuality and liberation. Beyond a bop, the song serves as an inspiration for those seeking to reject conformity and live authentically. Connolly collaborated with producer Marvin Fockens to create the track.

Hailing from Phoenix, Connolly combines a vibrant blend of introspection and sonic exploration. Her sound has been compared to Avril Lavigne and Paramore, with an essence that radiates beyond her youthful age. Incorporating aspects of both old and new, rock and pop seamlessly through her work, Connolly takes us on a thrilling ride of musicality. Her music, deeply rooted in early rock ’n’ roll, ’90s grunge, and ska, and subtly infused with R&B and soul elements, mirrors the raw feelings born from the diverse experiences of her lifetime.

On stage, she entices crowds with her irresistible aura; the energy behind this charisma is built up over years of performing on stage and in front of cameras as an actress. Beyond mere songwriting, she advocates for authenticity and self-expression, making her an example for other people looking for inspiration in this world that craves genuine voices and connection.
