I cannot wait to share my next music video with yall. We shot in two incredibly beautiful spots, of which this is one. So much went into it. I am so grateful to my collaborators who were so generous with their time and energy even when we were being devoured by bugs, wading in nasty lake Pontchartrain water, and one of us nearly stepped on a dead alligator. Thank you @juliekodell @cowboyellery @dietzie @bobweiszsucks @majic_sean @alexshizandra (and @mother___superior and @femme4fiend for opening your space). .
The song, What Have I Done, is on my last album, Shadow. It's about lost friendship. Specifically it's about losing a friendship and not knowing how or why. That always leaves me feeling so powerless and confused, the not knowing. I think it's something we can all relate to. I don't avoid confrontation. I always want to know what I've done to upset someone and I always want to share my feelings with whoever brought them about. This doesn't go over well with everyone. I've learned to accept that and know it's not something that's wrong with me. It's just an incompatibility. I am not too much. Neither are you. If someone thinks we are, we can let them go. Realizing that, I feel more at peace than ever. I am no longer trying to change myself according to anyone elses wants or needs. I am not trying to make myself likeable or loveable to anyone in particular... except myself. I know I'm not perfect and I love me! .
You can hear the song on Spotify and bandcamp and iTunes. There is no release date yet for the video but I'll announce it as soon as I know. Now we start editing! .
