Former Cochrane musician Sydney Mae has released "Lucky Am I" as a follow-up to "Feet First."

Mae says it's directly inspired by her current relationship.

“I met an incredible guitar player playing shows on a European cruise. When I decided to visit him and his family, one of his twin sons and I were immediately fascinated with each other,” recalls Mae. “We adore being around each other, and he’s one of the easiest connections I’ve ever made. This song represents every soul mate story, and it’s easy for people to see themselves in the lyrics.”

“Lucky Am I” was written by Mae with Allie Moss and Bess Rogers, the same collaborators responsible for  “Feet First."

Since its release in January, “Feet First” has generated 190,000+ streams on Spotify and was the #1 most played song on Stingray Music’s Pop Adult channel (Mar. 8).  She was also a Top-100 CBC Searchlight finalist.

Mae is an award-winning, singer, songwriter, storyteller, and recording artist now based in Toronto who nurtured many of her skills at a young age in Cochrane, originally performing country music.

Her contemporary musical influences include JP Saxe, Lennon Stella, Kacey Musgraves, and Julia Michaels.

“Songs are a place where everyone can escape and find some sort of healing. Being able to tell stories and make others feel human and understood fills me up with so much joy,” explains Mae. “I love it when an artist transports me out of my own life for a few moments, and that’s exactly what I strive to do for others.”
