Annie Parsons is a super important friend of mine in Nashville.
And this week is super important for her. Here’s a quote from her blog:
I moved to Nashville because I am a songwriter. But truth be told, at the time that I moved, I could count the number of songs I had actually written on one hand. More “brooding” than “brilliant,” I was never one of those children who composed music at age 6. The decision to write was just that: a decision… that I made when I was 23. But here I am – a completed EP in hand. Words and music by… me. Songs that, I believe, stand on their own – and brought to life by my dear friend and producer Joshua Stevens. They’re a small offering, but they’re mine – and I can’t wait for you to hear them.
That’s right, friends. Our own Annie Parsons has an EP out!!
The songs are beautiful. The cover art is BEAUTIFUL. I absolutely love the EP. So you should buy it for that reason. Because it’s great music written by one of our friends.
But more importantly. You should buy it because it’s our turn to step into Annie’s dream. Trust me- I watched this EP get made- from Annie eating at home for months to afford studio time, working a full time job and recording on nights and weekends, she has put her heart and soul and finances into seeing this EP become a reality.
This is what it looks like, y’all. To move to Nashville and make it happen.
Annie did it. And I couldn’t be more proud to call her my friend.
If you’re interested [and I bet you are], Annie is doing a series this week over at her blog, writing about each song on the EP. So pretty much, it’s “Annie Parsons: Behind The Music”- which is just. plain. cool.
