Morgan Wade people… write it down.
The Virginia-native is one of the most promising young stars we’ve heard in some time, and if you won’t take my word for it, take the word of Sadler Vaden, the longtime guitarist for Jason Isbell… he produced it.
Her OurVinyl Sessions are a must-listen, but today, she’s back with a brand new release titled “Don’t Cry.” And in typical Morgan Wade fashion, it’s a gut-punch of a song.
“I guess what I most would like people to take from this song is that we are the toughest on ourselves. I feel there is a part of me I see — and a part I let others see,” Wade shares. “To me, it’s about killing the ego and being yourself. And allowing yourself to feel what you feel and not be ashamed that you’re struggling. In the midst of falling apart, I’ve found myself. I hope others can, too.”
Here’s a taste of the chorus:
“Don’t cry, don’t cry, don’t cry
At some point, your hero must die
To escape the hands of time
It’s okay to not be alright
Let it go, let it go, let it go
Face the truth and bare your soul
Lose yourself and break your heart
It’s a beautiful thing to fall apart”
“I wanted this to be the single because this time of year is tough on people with the time change, colder weather, holidays and then to top it off a pandemic,” she continues. “If one person can hear this, and connect with it, then I’ve done my job.”
Morgan joined producer Vaden and engineer Paul Ebersold for a two-week studio session to shape and record the songs she has written over the years…. so stay tuned, there is more to come.
