NEW MUSIC: Soulful Songstress Y'Anna Crawley Releases EP 'This Is Me' Available Everywhere Now
Soulful songstress Y'Anna Crawley just released her highly-anticipated EP "This Is Me" under her independent label Sassy Soulstress Music. The EP is available today wherever music is sold and streamed. “This Is Me” arrives just in time for the new year, during a time where everyone has much to be thankful for post-pandemic, reflecting on the trying year and preparing for a new one. The six-track EP is Crawley's latest and most vulnerable body of work to date.
“This Is Me is authentically Me! I wanted to sing my heart’s position without constraint. It’s been a while since I released a body of work and I wanted to make sure I embodied the essence of me," says Y'Anna. "Every song has a specialty to it. Just give me 24 minutes of your time! Sit with the music and allow these songs to play as I tell a story through melodies and lyrics.”
“This Is Me” EP Track List:
This Is Me (Intro)

This Is Me (Intro) by Y'Anna Crawley Lyrics
This Is Me
It's been a while yeah I know
Because I was trying to figure this music thing out
What felt natural and fun to me
Now felt like "blah..whatever"
But then I started to miss it
I had gotten too far away from it
And so I thought "Yanni, we aren't going to focus On whether this is considered a hit
We are going to do this because you love music"
I decided to open up my heart and listen to what My soul had to say and it felt so good
It feels good that I made it.
