Behind the Song
Emmanuelle Sasson "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, sonically. It's definitely my favorite song I've written thus far. "away from me" is the diary of a pessimist. It's painfully confessional. There was a period of time in my life where I felt extremely depressed and lonely. I never really expressed that to anyone, so I put it in a song." - Emmanuelle Sasson
