About "The Problem"
I wrote "The Problem" wayyyyy back in 2015. I wrote it at a time before I had a songwriting "process". I had recently gone through a breakup, and decided that it was probably a good idea to just drink a bunch of wine and work out my feelings with a notebook and my guitar. Two-thirds of a bottle later, I had the framework for "The Problem". I recall texting said ex-boyfriend and telling him "Hey, I'm Taylor-Swifting you right now." He took it lightheartedly and wished me the best. He said that if the song ever made the top 40, the least I could do was buy him a boat with the royalties. It seemed like a reasonable request.
I've written a lot since 2015, but it feels really good to put this song that's been with me for so long out to the world. I hope you enjoy it.
So, what else is new?
Single Release Schedule
Originally, I planned to release one song a month, then Christmas happened. Then January happened. (Is it just me or was January a crazy month?) Then I adopted a puppy on top of it all. All of a sudden I found myself in the month of February trying to get back on track. I made lots of goals for 2019 and I wasn't about to forget them. I got the new pup settled (mostly) and decided it was time to get my sh*t together. I got two songs back from our mixing engineer and I was ready to roll. I have "The Problem" queued up for release on March 8th, then a song for April 5th, and a song for May 3rd!
In other news, I am booking my very first tour! I'm heading to Colorado in June for several dates along the front range. As that starts to become more concrete, I will be sure to send out updates.
