Today we’re looking at a song that’s been available for awhile, but sometimes it takes an artist and a song awhile to get some notice. Then the song can become “new” again at least in terms of the mainstream listening audience.
The artist is Risa Binder. It looks like she’s been working on her dream in Nashville for quite some time. That’s common in the country world. It takes time to become an overnight success.
Anyway, check out this new song.
Pretty – Risa Binder
There is some real meaning to this song. It’s about the struggle that many face in life. There are lots of pressures today. Our private lives really aren’t that private. There can be constant pressure to be “on” all the time. Sometimes you don’t feel like you can just be yourself.
The story and the lyrics and the sentiment in this song are something that many can relate to. Risa does a great job performing the song. I really like the production too with the soaring chorus singalong that kind of brings something extra to the song that I think listeners will like.
Like I said, this song has been out for awhile now. It looks like it was released back in 2015. It looks like Risa has been independently releasing music for quite a few years. That’s one cool thing about music today. The artists can build their careers and work to get picked up by the labels.
Maybe that will happen for Risa.
