September 9, 2018
Licy Be releases her latest single 'Be The Change' feat. CASS & WYLD
Devoted rapper, poet, suicide prevention advocate - Licy Be is a an artist on a mission. Hailing from New Zealand, formerly from Perth and now based on the Gold Coast, Licy (pronounced Leecy for you non-kiwis) is proud to share her new single ahead of its September 10 release, Be The Change.
Teaming up with fellow Kiwi CASS and UK producer WYLD, the song shines a light on making a stand for suicide prevention. Licy says of the collaboration “We wrote this song to speak to a generation struggling with suicide. We believe it's everyones responsibility to 'Be The Change' and reach out to those in our lives that are struggling with life, depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts and mental health challenges. Whatever it may be, there is hope. Services are important as well, but together if we take up the challenge then maybe we can all contribute towards saving lives and making a difference as well.”
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.
