One of the most outspoken advocates for mental health awareness, Slow Magic is a master of weaving inspirational themes into his music, using his platform and music to support and inspire others to not be fearful of being themselves, sharing their emotions, and embracing the process of healing after hurt. For anyone who may be hurting or going through something, this track and all Slow Magic is for you, gently reminding you that everything will be ok. Take a listen below:
“What do we lose by avoiding our pain? I finished this song in the midst of learning that I had lost a family member. I spent a lot of time grieving and mourning for that person and reflecting on times in the past. There was a rush of nostalgic feelings and extreme pain that reminded me that we cannot go back to those times. Although I had been thinking about the meaning of the song and the vocal samples for a while, it became even clearer during my period of mourning. I hope people can find their own meaning and understanding in the words and music of this song and remember not to be afraid of their emotions, and to talk to others about them.“
