This is my first exposure to Kira Isabella. The first impression is a good one. She’s been out there for a long time releasing quite a few videos and singles. From the first listen this song comes across as something different. Give it a listen and see what you think.
Quarterback – Kira Isabella
The sound of this song doesn’t start out like the usual high school romance song. And as things start going you realize that is exactly the point of the song.
I’m sure some kids do fall in love in high school. They’re entirely respectful of each other, but that is not always the case, unfortunately. That’s the story of this song. It’s about the star of the school. It’s the quarterback of the team taking advantage of a young girl; feeding her beers and then taking advantage of her.
The guy thinks he’s indestructible and hurts a girl that just wanted to be a part of something and wanted to feel love for the first time. I’m sure this story is all too familiar for some out there. It’s unfortunate that is has to happen and all you can hope is that justice can be served in some way.
Great song here from Kira Isabella. It makes a strong first impression both for the song and the performance. She’s a great singer and great storyteller and this is a story that needs to be told.
