Dreyfuss has quietly emerged as a rare multi-hyphenate whose undeniable presence on stage and on-screen belies identifiable vulnerability.

Growing up, she learned piano and studied at Boston Conservatory. Establishing herself across theatre and television, she went from a standout turn in Once two years in Dear Evan Hansen. Along the way, she garnered various honours, including a 2018 GRAMMY® Award in the category of “Best Musical Theatre Album” for the Original Broadway Cast Recording of Dear Evan Hansen and a Daytime Creative EMMY® Award in the category of “Outstanding Musical Performance in a Daytime Program” for “You Will Be Found” as performed on The Today Show.

In Dreyfuss’ latest single “Nose To Nose”, the song integrates acoustic strumming and handclaps into a warm electronic soundscape punctuated by shimmering keys and a guitar solo. Overwhelmed with a rush of happiness, she celebrates her three-year-old dog Banjo with playful lyrics about “tug-of-war” and “chasing you in circles just to kiss your face” before a heartfelt hook. “With ‘Nose To Nose’,

I wanted to capture the purest form of love, and I felt like a fun way to express that was writing about my dog Banjo. She’s such a presence in my life,” says Dreyfuss. “The lyrics seem like they’re about a person though! Musically, it’s the joy of having this unconditional love from an innocent animal. It’s a celebration of that.”

The song “Pillow” explores heart-wrenching feelings of loneliness and the impact this has on one’s mental health. “‘Pillow’ is where my headspace was for most of 2020. I was trying to find comfort in what I could control in a very isolating environment,” says Dreyfuss.

With sweeping acoustic guitars, tender piano elements and breathtakingly stunning vocals that build into a climatic crescendo of cinematic sounds, “Pillow” paints a vivid and relatable portrait of passion, hope, and longing. Further accentuating the tender narrative, the visuals for “Pillow” follow Dreyfuss throughout the course of the pandemic as she shares intimate memories cuddling with her boyfriend and dog, playing in the snow, and exploring the great beauty of nature while finding solace, connection and joy in the quiet moments that we often take for granted.
