Shiré - (Don’t) Lay Me Off

Posted 7 years ago
Tags: Shiré
Producer:
Triple A [for Hot City Music Group]
Album:
Pickin' Up The Pieces

While nobody’s enjoying the current economic downturn, you have to admit it has a bangin’ soundtrack (Joell OrtizBout My Money and Cam’ron‘s I Hate My Job come to mind).  The latest recession-era anthem comes courtesy of a certain Baltimore soul singer.  Struggling to pay her bills in the face of cutbacks at her workplace, Shiré lives in fear that her boss might come along and announce he’ll Lay Me Off. Produced by Triple A, (Don’t) Lay Me Off, in addition to touching on a current hot-button issue, further proves that Shiré isn’t about to let an A&R change her—as previously demonstrated on I Used To Lovher, she’s determined to continue marching to the beat of her own drummer.  Her debut album, Pickin’ Up The Pieces, is currently set for a fall ‘09 release (by which time, hopefully, our blasted economy will be on the road to recovery).
