Hey Our Basement,
When I first began to write the lyrics for this song, I was in LA and just wanted to escape reality.
I wasn’t comfortable in my current situation, having so many disappointments fighting the music business for the last 10 years.
I often feel so different when I’m in another country and feel like there’s so many new opportunities that I feel like another person.
On that trip, I began to see a little light out of the blurriness and started writing in the backyard of my Airbnb. Two years later, back in the studio, the song came to life.
With the confinement and closed borders we are facing now, the urge to escape is heightened.
It’s okay to start all over again and to take risks. I hope “Runaway” serves as a reminder that it’s never too late to change things around and move on and take a different path.
Thanks for lending this song your time,
