Rising Boston-based pop singer/songwriter Gillian Heidi is back with her third single of 2021, ‘waves’. The emotional ballad once again shows off her songwriting and melody creating skillset proving she is an artist to keep an eye on this year.
For anyone in need of a comparable, ‘waves’ would go down a treat with fans of Taylor Swift, Alessia Cara, and Olivia Rodrigo. Whether behind the piano or with a guitar in hand, Gillian’s music is a conduit for truth. Journeying through themes of relationship breakups, the pains of addiction, or facing loneliness, she conveys an unbridled emotion and wisdom that belies her 17 years of age.
On the latest single, Gillian explained:
“I wrote waves at the end of eighth grade, when I started to realize that everything was changing… I had this overwhelming feeling of realizing that I wasn’t a kid anymore. Instead, my life was now plagued with worry about tests and relationships and things that, in the long run, don’t really matter. waves was a moment of realization for me – I was growing up.
My life was no longer focused on fun and fairytales, and I was nostalgic for a simpler, easier time. waves captures a feeling of nostalgia and pain, wishing you would’ve cherished simplistic times when they existed and wondering how you ended up where you are.”
