“I love this song because of its simplicity” says Rowlette, “I wrote it about a day a friend of mine came to visit me in my hometown. It was a wintery Sunday evening during the pandemic and there was really nowhere to go.
We ended up going to Mr. Price and having a great time – it’s one of those places you always find things you didn’t know you needed! I got a lovely journal to write down what I wanted for the year, and I assumed he would think I was a bit silly, but instead he was just really supportive.”
“Obviously big gestures and that are nice, but I think there’s nothing better than when you can tell someone really believes in you and has your back.”
Talking about what she’d like from the song Rowlette hopes it reminds people to tell the people around them they believe in them; “Honestly there’s so much fake crap out there and online, I think the impostor syndrome is real for everyone! Tell your friends “You got this!” We all need to hear it sometimes.”
The acoustic pop track was produced by Dave Skelton and mastered by Aidan Foley. The singer’s distinctive vocals sit beautifully on top of her trademark acoustic guitar, alongside piano and some orchestral elements mixed with modern pop percussion and bass.
2022 was a busy year for the artist who hosted a packed out headliner in the British capital with fellow musician Faraway Martin, supported CMAT, Rofi James and Junior Brother, and released a string of new tracks. 2023 is shaping up to be an even busier year, with much more music planned for release.
