Licy Be Shines A Light On Social Media Influences On New Single 'Grown'
Devoted rapper, poet, motivational speaker, suicide prevention and mental health awareness advocate Licy Be shares her new single ‘Grown’, featuring Brisbane newcomer Anaru and Perth production guru Isaac Sherwood.
Following on from spring single Be The Change that continues to shine a light on suicide prevention, Licy highlights the issue of comparison issues across social media. "I think a lot of us are trying to 'make it' or get somewhere with our dreams and along the way lose ourselves with the dangerous influences of social media. It's easy to go down a path of forgetting who you are and where you come from in an attempt to be 'grown'."
Licy’s love of poetry and subsequent natural talent for rapping has culminated in a series of online videos achieving in excess of 100,000 spins. Licy performed at the Sydney Opera House in 2016 as a national finalist in the Australian Poetry Slam and has since gone on to support at sold-out shows by Rn’B artist Sammy Johnson’s and Perth emcee Marksman Lloyd. Licy has also done numerous school appearances and performed to a 3000 strong Youth Alive crowd at HBF Stadium.
