Singer-songwriter Brodie Dawson recently released her latest single "Will I Ever", and to celebrate we asked her to tell us about the song. Here is the story:
I wrote WILL I EVER the summer my husband and I separated. I was so heartbroken, bitter and lost and yet hellbent and determined to find myself again.
A beautiful couple I know on the infamous Hornby Island, BC, ever-so-generously offered me their cabin near the ocean for the weekend as a little writing retreat. So I packed up my dog, my guitar and my journal and spent the entire weekend thinking, crying, walking on the beach and writing & playing..
The melody and chorus came first, and the rest flowed out from there. All I can say is when I was playing it I felt so badass and empowered! I used to call it my "bitter break up song" and I didn't realize it at the time, but I now see in hindsight that it's actually more about resilience and faith...
For the longest time it was more of a 'groove' song than anything, and it only had one verse. Cool note: I wrote the second verse the night before recording it in the studio in Nashville!
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen and watch for yourself below and learn more about Brodie here
