Today’s song is “Cocaine” by Meghann Wright. The Brooklyn-based Americana songstress Meghann Wright. She has a soulful fire that has been said to “embrace the closing-time bluntness of Amy Winehouse, the conviction of Sheryl Crow, the husky soul of Janis Joplin, and subtle grit of Dolly Parton.” Wright also founded The City & The Heart, one of NYC’s top organizations to help support independent female artists.
This song is off her self-titled EP out July 29th 2014. Meghann says
“Cocaine” is a “satirical examination of what humans do when they are feeling lousy. We are all guilty of exploiting negativity in search of answers and ‘good feels’ only to find that what we are trying to escape is still right where we left it when we sober up on the bathroom floor. Most of my music is a reflection of the human condition. It’s my intention to create music to which people can relate – hopefully, they get something positive out of it, and feel less alone. It’s important to remember we are all connected and we can’t thrive without helping each other. After all, we’re all just ghosts driving meat-coated skeletons made of stardust, amiright?”
