Country Pop Singer-Songwriter Sykamore Releases John-Hughes-Inspired Track “Stay Broke” Out Now

Inspired by the 80s, Sykamore Releases the Song and Lyric Video for Her Second of Three Monthly Releases

Toronto, ON – Canadian Country-Pop singer-songwriter Sykamore releases her new track “Stay Broke” and accompanying lyric video today. This song comes hot on the heels of her track “Cheap Thrills” and is the second in a trio of planned monthly releases. Released via Music Knox Records/Wheelhouse Records, the song is available everywhere digitally today and the lyric video is now live! Listen HERE.

Embracing 1980s pop culture Sykamore wrote “Stay Broke” inspired by high school dance scenes often found in John Hughes movies – like Pretty In Pink and Sixteen Candles. “I wanted to explore this idea of being unapologetically in love – for better or for worse – even if it means being broken,” says Sykamore. “And I feel like that is a very kind of teenage way to look at love, when someone would rather stay broken and feel what they think is love than have to move on and piece yourself back together.”

Drawing inspirations from George Strait to George Michael and Shania Twain to Lana Del Rey, Sykamore’s mixture of humor and heart is a fixture in her writing, which lives for sly wordplay and lyrical winks. Last year she released her five-song escape, California King, produced by ACM Award-winning producer Michael Knox (Jason Aldean, Kelly Clarkson).

Originally discovered via Twitter by veteran songwriter Rhett Akins, the vulnerable lyricist has shared bills with artists ranging from Miranda Lambert to Josh Ritter, and she was recently named a CMT 2020-2021 “Listen Up” Artist.
