Non-binary singer-songwriter Grayson just released a new song “Cherry Pits“. This is Grayson’s second single, following “Brother” last year. The tracks are both from the upcoming debut EP Head To Head, coming out on May 10 on One Half Records.
Grayson says of the song,
“It is important to let other people help you and be a part of the process of growth, but at the end of the day, you are alone with yourself and your thoughts. ‘Cherry Pits’ is about the need to take ownership of my self. This desire brought up many questions: What are my needs? What are our needs
People often say, ‘You can’t have everything.’ You definitely can’t have it by stepping on someone else in order to get there. It warps the success of whatever that thing may be. Misery loves company, as the cliche goes. Confrontation has never been my strong suit, but ‘Cherry Pits’ is a firm voice giving me permission to no longer stay in a damaging cycle. Toxic behaviors often repeat, but when you can finally turn the corner of letting go, the energy around you feels super-charged.”
Grayson grew up in the Mormon Church and has been singing in front of audiences since they were 3. At 17 Grayson relocated to Seattle and co-founded the indie synth-pop band NeuYouth.
Grayson currently lives in LA.
