Seth Alley was born in Sparta, Tennessee. He’s been immersing himself in the Nashville music scene since 2012. His new song “Be Yourself” is a true testament to Seth Alley as not only as an artist, but as a person.
The song’s verses have a vibe that is twenty-one pilots mixed with mainstream country. Alley has impressive phrasing, which is demonstrated throughout the song. His lyrics are honest and vulnerable with lines like “I’m valued by my success/ no rest if I want to be the best” and “be the best without being too different or it’s like you don’t exist/ so I sing about small towns and dirt roads.” Alley puts a spotlight on his internal struggle as an artist, one that we can all relate to some capacity, how to feel unique. In the end, he comes to the conclusion that “stop worrying about everyone else/ be yourself.” This is the ultimate pick-me-up song for anyone struggling to fit in.
