"away from me"

"Like I've always said, music is my therapy. It's my main form of self-expression and I don't think I'd be alive without it. My main goal in my music is to show that people aren't a lot, regardless of what they're going through. "away from me", my latest release, in a way, feels like the first song I ever wrote. Yes, it is self-deprecation at its finest, but it also led me in the right direction...

"Love is Gone"

"LOVE IS GONE represents the curtain call after a long term relationship abruptly ends. In the wake of the uncomfortable pain comes a sense of newfound freedom that calls for a celebration.

I wrote this song when I had gotten broken up with over the phone after being in a relationship for 6+ years. I wanted this song to be harsh, funny and authentic.

Like the phases of this relationship, LOVE IS GONE mo...

"Say Less"

"Say Less" was inspired by the "disco" era but also includes bass lines that capture today's pop culture. Growing up my mom always played disco music in the car, there is something about it that just makes you want to get up and dance as soon as you hear it. When I went into the studio my goal was to create something feel good and powerful that had a reminiscence of the 70s, mixed with a bit of R&B...

"Heat Seeker"

"Heat Seeker is a song about searching, longing for and going after meaning in life. It's an observation of modern American ways of life, Johnny and the Video Star, paths that lead to no salvation at all. A philosopher is someone who asks "how might we live?" and this song is about the drive to ask that question and go toward answers with the power and recklessness of an explosive missile, toward wisdom,...

"Show Me You"

"I wrote "Show Me You" in my bedroom and my brother (MkX) produced it. It's about my frustration with Instagram culture and influencers making people feel like they need to photoshop and edit their images to keep up. There is this obsession with perfection, but in that perfection, the real, authentic person is buried somewhere underneath it. I never understood it, and one of my best friends had completely...

"For the Rest of My Days"

"This song celebrates the power, freedom, and strength that comes along with living life authentically. Loving yourself enough to ignore the fear of not being accepted by others or judged for simply being who you are."

This Week's Behind the Song
"Sail Away" is also the new #1 song
on this week's What's In-Store Music Chart.

"I got the inspiration from a pin a friend gave me that said Sail Away With Me. I was in the middle of playing a new guitar melody when I just started messing around with that phrase. From there the song developed, expressing several meanings. Love interests to the literal sense of sailing away or to even escaping reality...

"Fire With Fire"

"In a world where emotional unavailability reigns high and commitment is a thing of the past, we tend to settle for relationships that are unhealthy and unfulfilling. Social Media has heightened this behavior by romanticizing fuckboys and glorifying narcissists. Perhaps one of the reasons guys treat us poorly is because we let them. My song, "Fire with Fire" is about revenge and for not being okay with h...

"Return To Sender" 

"I have always had been a HUGE fairytale fan and grew up on tales of magic, prince & princesses and of course, "Happily ever after". Reality proved to be very different. Many years after marrying my "one true love", I discovered that I had been getting cheated on for almost the entire marriage. I was crushed. As I spoke to people about what happened- I saw a trend. It didn't matter how faithful the...
