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.
Then I moved to Nashville, the songwriting Mecca of America. I had nothing to go on except a hunch that words and music and expression made up a very important sliver of my heart, and that I had a passion and desire to get better at piecing them together.
In the last two years, I’ve been learning a tiny bit of what it means to write. It’s been scary – to admit to myself that I might have something worth sharing, and to open myself up to the possibility of looking like a total loser. I have felt both in equal measure – because nothing says I’M ANNIE PARSONS! like emotional highs and lows.
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.
Check back on Monday to order your copy of my EP, “Wish That I Was”!
