Video Premiere | Yvonne McDonnell – I’m Not This Layer of Skin


Empowerment is the theme of Yvonne McDonnell’s upcoming EP Not Her Own, something which is certainly evident on opening track ‘I’m Not This Layer of Skin’ – a song inspired by Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem ‘The Lady of Shalott’. McDonnell’s emotive vocals tower over the gentle guitar and stirring strings in a powerful mix which draws the listener in. With the EP due out on June 17, we can today bring you the video premiere for the lead track. Yvonne said: “In short its challenging the shallow portrayal of women in the media and focusing on their minds and substance (hence all the activities in the vid, some normal everyday and some showing talents and interests).”
