"Burn it to the Ground" fuses Americana, folk, country, and blue-grass. Starting at the beginning, "Burn it to the Ground" heats up the intro with vocals (sans instrumentation) that enter on the ultra catchy chorus. Singing in layers, the vocals are fantastic. After the first guitar strums, the layers of plucking, finger-picking, twangy leads and foot-tapping percussion will have you clapping along. Sohayla has mastered the art of building up to a chorus as the song drives forward and the chorus stands out like a firecracker in the night sky.
The song is about putting the flame out on a bad relationship, stomping it out, and rising from the ashes -it can easily catch fire with Americana fans everywhere.
