Singled Out: Katie Garibaldi's Follow Your Heart
The title track of this album, "Follow Your Heart," is a song very special to me that I wrote about the importance of following the voice inside your heart. No matter what people say or try to push you in different directions, as long as you stay true to the voice inside your heart, things will always work out. In my experience, I've learned that with anything in life, when I go against my gut or ignore my intuition, things end up not working out, or it's at least a harder road getting to where I want to be. And when I do follow my heart and fight for what I believe in, no matter how hard that may be, things not only work out, but they succeed even better than I ever expected or imagined.
I think it's a pretty powerful message that a lot of people can relate to. We've all had those moments where we think, "If only I had listened to my intuition." I feel like that voice inside us is a little compass that won't ever steer us wrong. Sometimes it's a loud voice, but sometimes it's only a whisper. Our job is to listen to what our heart is saying, and then not be afraid to follow through with it once we hear it.
I feel like "Follow Your Heart" is my anthem and definitely the message that I want to spread. When I wrote it, I knew it was going to be the cornerstone of the whole album, both in the theme of the songs as well as the journey I took to record it. I like to think of it as a little lullaby to remind people, as well as myself, that even when things are tough, hang in there, follow your heart, and it will guide you to where you need to be.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
