The popular busker from California's Bay Area known as Little Happy has released her debut official EP album, “Hi People.” The album contains three integral Little Happy singles, “Jealous,” “If This Really Is Goodbye,” and “Little Happy” for an approximate total listening time of 10 minutes. Raw, unadulterated and overflowing with heart and soul, “Hi People” may very well be the most genuine pop-punk record of 2017.
Little Happy cites as main artistic influences Goo Goo Dolls, Smashing Pumpkins, New Found Glory, Phil Collins, Boys Like Girls, and Gin Blossoms. Her music is perhaps most akin to that of New Found Glory, but ultimately her sound and style are her own.
“I feel I've pretty much lived and breathed music all my life,” says Little Happy. “When I was 15, I started writing my own songs. I probably started seriously pursuing it as soon as I left home. That was when I started playing for money at train stations.”
A popular and well-known face around the Bay, Little Happy is mostly famed for busking with her frequent collaborator, DSueetz, but has already been featured on 89.9FM in Vallejo in spite of having no publicity manager nor advertising agents.
If it isn't her upbeat music or the infectious positive attitude with which she infuses each song that is responsible for the growth of her popularity, then it may be her startling work ethic as a music artist.
“I do most of the writing,” she says. “I have probably about 100 songs saved up over the last 10 years. Once in a while, my friend and frequent collaborator, DSueetz contributes a verse or composes the music.”
Asked to comment on the general theme of her new EP, Little Happy writes, “I don't think I'm really trying to share one message in particular. I just write what I feel, and hopefully people can relate to it. I guess if I had any particular message, it would be, stay happy. No matter what happens to me, no matter how bad things get, staying happy always gets me through it.”
“Hi People” from Little Happy is available online worldwide from over 600 quality digital music retailers now.
