Demi Michelle - Four Leaf Clover (single)
Demi Michelle Schwartz is a pop and country songwriter from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. From a young age, she has surrounded herself with music, playing piano, singing her favorite songs, and going to as many concerts as possible. While in college, she discovered her passion for songwriting and decided to turn her experiences into lyrics. The thought of writing a new song is always in her mind, and she can’t resist typing lyrics into her phone and recording melody ideas when she’s inspired. Her songs hold an authenticity that shows who she is, staying true to herself as a songwriter.
She released her debut album Dear Diary last year. Now, Demi Michelle is wrapping up her Dear Diary chapter with “Four Leaf Clover.” The song was originally supposed to be on her 11-track album, but she decided to hold onto it and release it as a single.
“‘Four Leaf Clover’ reminds me of springtime. I thought it’d be fitting to release this song as the closing entry of Dear Diary.”
Demi Michelle’s 2022 is off to a marvelous start. Along with releasing her rendition of “Homecoming Queen” by Kelsea Ballerini and original country-pop single, “Across the Pond,” she was invited to be the first artist on the Bubba Show Live and Local Music Spotlight on 100.7 STAR, Pittsburgh’s top 40 station, for an interview and airplay of her popular track, “Will I Ever.” Now, she’s ready to share “Four Leaf Clover,” a song that explores hopes of falling in love through beautiful metaphors and gentle instrumentation.
“Four Leaf Clover” is a fully acoustic pop-folk record that shimmers with vulnerability and authenticity. The delicate acoustic guitar and bass line support Demi’s emotional vocals as she pours her heart out into the song, singing, “All I can do is wonder if someone will ever feel lucky to find me, like I’m a four leaf clover.”
The four leaf clover metaphor at the heart of this song shows Demi’s creativity as a songwriter. The lyrics are full of vivid imagery, and the floating melody gives off both a magical and dreamlike quality. The fully acoustic nature of this song brings a level of intimacy that allows Demi’s songwriting to shine through. The simple arrangement lets the message come across, let the emotions resonate with the listeners. We all know the feeling of longing for love, wanting to find that special someone. You hear everything in Demi Michelle's voice - the hope, the desire, the loneliness. The honesty of this song is striking and it shows the audience that singers are also only humans.
"I can't escape the cold that comes with feeling alone, like I'm on the island in the middle of the ocean"
