My first release of 2021 is now being sent to lots of online stores and streaming services! January 21, 2021, Wrong with Me will be available for your listening pleasure. It’s a single that will be part of an EP, but I’ll tell you more about that later.
It feels brand new, but Wrong with Me is a song I wrote almost 2 years ago now. It’s personal. It makes me uncomfortable to sing sometimes. It’s about me, feeling completely overwhelmed to the point of paralysis. If you don’t get what I’m saying, here’s a visual:
For the record, no, I’ve never been diagnosed with ADHD (just anxiety). But when I saw this, it made me think of exactly how I felt when I wrote the first few lines of Wrong with Me (& so many other times in my life that I have been internally panicking).
Releasing this song feels symbolic. They say that admitting there is a problem is the first step to fixing it, right?
I’ve been working hard to understand myself more, to work through issues, to be a productive human being, to be a better mother, friend, collaborator. So, in a way it feels like by releasing this song, I’m moving on, and when I sing this song, I’ll be singing about something from the past. By talking about it, I hope to help remove the stigma around mental illness, and help others realize that they are not alone. They can absolutely move past it (whatever “it” is for them). When the weight of everything is so heavy that you feel like you can’t move, maybe this song could be the thing that helps you get through it, like it helped me.
Anyway, Rebecca Sykes plays drums on this recording, Andrew, from Moon & Sea, plays electric guitar and bass, giving this recording a very Midwest emo vibe. It was mastered by Doug Van Sloun at Focus Mastering. It turned out dramatic, dynamic, and everything I wanted it to be. I couldn’t be happier that it’s my first release of 2021!

& thank you. I love you. Yes, you.
