Shine

Sat down and wrote a bad poem 
damn near ruined my whole day
then I noticed the tears of a child
and my selfish sorrow went away  

I claim not to have any answers
it feels like no one has a prayer
though my light is not too bright
it’s somehow lovely when I care

Most of us may never be great
yet we can be kind we can smile
together we can make a change 
will you shine with me for a while 

My Hello Kitty heart can’t believe this day is here. I feel like I’ve posted “album coming soon” so many times but I can officially say ‘bye bitch’ to the days of music pending.

Since the release of my Comeback Queen EP I’ve been working on new music so I could further reveal my heart and soul to y’all. I was really depressed, so I wrote about it. I was fucked off with how women are still objectified, so I wrote about it. I was (and still am) saddened by the state of the world, so I wrote about it. In the past, I tried to be a perfect Southern girl, tried to make my family proud but I realized what worked best and made them proudest was just doing me, no matter how much I fucked up along the way. This education is what led me to my personal motto and the title of my new album, ‘In Loving Memory Of When I Gave A Shit.’

If you’ve seen me live, you know how important it is to me that each of you feels heard, understood, loved and necessary and I wanted to be able to translate that into an album. All that I ask as you listen to this album is that you stand in front of the mirror, in your underwear (you can also keep your clothes on if you really want), scream the words out (just like me) and feel world fade away, just for a little while.

'In Loving Memory Of When I Gave A Shit’ - out September 9th! Get “Shine” & “Not Gonna Let You Walk Away” instantly when you pre-order the album on iTunes or Amazon.

You can also stream “Shine” and “Not Gonna Let You Walk Away” on Spotify or Apple Music, hope you love it 💕
