Emmy Awards buzz is in the air, but there's one Emmy nominee who's crashing the music scene. Liv Keegan, who is a Daytime Emmy Award nominee this year for playing Claire Brady on the NBC soap opera "Days of Our Lives," has just released her second single "Just My Type." You can listen to the single by playing the video above, and also stream it on Spotify.
Music fans will recognize Keegan's name from more than 150 episodes "Days of Our Lives" or her guest appearances on TV shows like "Modern Family," "Enlisted, "Growing Up Fisher" and "Wilfred." But she has now added pop singer to her resume, having posted several covers on her YouTube channel before releasing her debut original single "Queen Is A King" earlier this year. According to the press release for "Just My Type," she's currently working on a full debut album and will continue to release music in the rest of 2018 leading up to the arrival of her complete album.
But there are a lot of pop singers in the music world, and plenty of actresses who have also recorded songs, so what separates Liv Keegan from the many artists who are also in her space? She has hit the sweet spot of what audiences will enjoy. "Just My Type" has the upbeat, high-energy sound that puts the pop in pop music, and will make the single a fine addition to anyone's playlist if they're looking to unwind this summer. But it's also a song that doesn't try to do too much. It's endearing, uncomplicated and fun.
Being that "Just My Type" is only Keegan's second single, it's clear that she's still developing her sound. But this song demonstrates that she knows that, and is making music that's universal. Just as she's introducing herself to listeners, the song is introducing itself as well with its catchy sound and straightforward lyrics. And it's a more than charming introduction. Listen to it by playing the video above and it will leave you wanting more.
