“Wanted a friend, you became my lover. A best of best worlds, we’d never expected…” Or was that just a fantasy? Was this a dream? Or will it turn into a nightmare? It’s up to you. It’s up to us. Will you let it be? Will there be tears of joy, or just tears of pain, unrelenting?
Anna Shoemaker does her A-game, as her single ‘Won’t Make Me Cry’ – mahogany and plainly beautiful – captures the sliver of thought and wisps of emotions that makes us human. Lyrically contagious, and vocally deep, it pertains to a place of solace, where living on love’s razor’s-edge seems to be it all.
Anna said: “I was just feeling like, damn, everyone I date is so dramatic and game-playing, I’m over it…”You’re not going to make me cry, why can’t we just be cool and real with each other? As a songwriter I feel like I romanticize everything in my personal life, but some days I think to myself, ‘this doesn’t have to be that deep!’”.
“Then there’s a side of me that says ‘yes it does’…”
Collectively predictive, and warmly affectionate, towards for all who’d gone down that road, Anna’s sumptuous allocations of lust, love, embrace, and understanding, brings that extra to her audience.
