a bit about my brand new single, static
Moving to Nashville was weirdly unceremonious.
I'd been loosely planning on it for over a year before it happened, and even as the date approached, everything about it was very casual. Our official plan was this: at some point before September 1st, 2016, my mom and I would pack all of my stuff in our cars, and we'd get on the road once we got everything to fit. Once in Nashville, I'd bounce between my sister's apartment and my cousin's house until my lease started Sept 1. I'd get furniture and a job...eventually. Then, I guess I'd start my life?
Before Nashville, I'd been living in the Boston area for about 7 years. I had a reason to be there- I was going to school. I had classes, groups, teams, extracurriculars, structure...purpose. In Nashville, I just had a dream. Sure, I had family and friends there, but I didn't *have* to move. There was nothing really waiting for me in Nashville except uncertainty, and nothing keeping me in New England besides familiarity.
Nevertheless, on a sunny Rhode Island afternoon in August, I stoically hugged my boyfriend at the time goodbye- the last time I've seen him since- got in my packed car, and began my drive to Nashville. I was about 45 mins into my drive when the radio station I was listening to began to break up before completely dissolving into static. I immediately started crying one of those full body cries that makes your abs hurt and your lips quiver. I was sad, I was excited, I was confused, I was relieved, I was exhausted, I was nervous, I was terrified. For better or for worse, I was choosing to bring a significant chapter of my life to an end. Sometimes, that's the only way to keep the story moving.
A year and a half later, I'm excited to share a piece of this story with you. My new single "Static" is out everywhere now. Buy it, stream it, share it, cry to it, dance to it, drive to it here: smarturl.it/ListenToStatic
