3 THINGS TO STAY SANE BY “MYSELF” IN LOCKDOWN

I wrote “Myself,” after first moving to LA and spending a lot of time by myself and getting used to being alone. The song expresses a need I was feeling for love and intimacy as a distraction from deep-rooted feelings and problems. Adapting to the isolation which came only a few months later from the COVID 19 quarantine helped to inspire the creation of the visual. 

The video for “Myself” shows my adjustment to creating while I’ve been quarantined in Miami, where I have been staying with family. It was shot completely on an iPhone X and produced by friends, who began media and production company GOODHOUSE Productions, as a reaction to the quarantine as well. This is their first-ever video they have made together. The video is created to make it look like I am a moving image in a static picture and incorporates many graphic elements to convey the feeling of reading a personal journal. “Myself” is the first single off of my upcoming YELLOW BLAZER EP, out October of this year.

To stay sane, I asked my friends for suggestions on the 3 things they do to keep sane during the lockdown:
