“Once I took the pressure off of myself and the people I was working with, my music got better and bigger opportunities seemed to flow to me with ease. There’s always been a romanticization of the struggling artist, but sometimes the struggle is what’s holding you back. Not to sound nauseatingly “new-age, but I do strongly believe that the more trust I have in the universe, the more results I get.”
“This is the final song of the album and the final single before it comes out, so I really wanted to make this music video a digital scrapbook of all the amazing people and places I got to encounter and work with throughout the process. When I wrote this song, I was putting so much pressure on myself to be “successful” and ended up in a place where I just wanted to give up.
On music, but also on life. But as soon as I thought I had made that decision, everything came so easily. I was inspired again and eager to work and hang out with people. I think I just needed to know that I’m a person outside of the art that I make. So this video is mostly about all the people that have made life worth living and music worth making, even though that’s DISGUSTING to say. Don’t tell them I said that.”
