Optimism may be on short supply these days, but Violet LaVelle has you covered if you need a pick-me-up. Originally from the outskirts of Kansas City, she moved to Nashville in 2011 to pursue a career as a performer and has been on the grind ever since. Honing her pop/R&B sound, she has found a voice that is bold, fresh, and unapologetic. She speaks her truth into everything she writes and at the end of the day, she hopes her stories can bring people a little closer together.
She released “Masterpiece” at the end of 2020, a year that was undoubtedly rough for everyone and definitely short on positive feelings. She wanted to write a song to remind everyone that we are still human, our voices and lives still matter, and that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. And this exceptional single sure does deliver.
Tyra Thompson, also a Nashville-based R&B artist, joins in on this boldly optimistic track to deliver an astonishing and beautiful vocal performance to listeners. Set over a soulful piano melody, Violet and Tyra create a calming atmosphere for their powerful lyrics. They remind listeners that we’re all masterpieces, even if things in the world seem uncertain. Both women are strong vocalists in their own rights, but together, they create a tenacious harmony to bring resolute energy to the message.
