Why do we like this?

I'm in love with Ashley Koett's voice and maybe that's personal, somehow. It sounds like a girl I once knew whose named was Jamie.

Maybe it's the hints of pain in her delivery that I can hear, that I love. More simply, it could just be how powerfully the raspiness of her voice resonates with me.

There's a sadness that I feel too, from deep inside her belly -- exhaled in form of vibrato. The breaths I can almost hear after every note has left her diaphragm are ghostly. It's like the mix engineer cut them out completely, yet I can imagine them to sound the way exhaustion does. 

No matter. Simple words with a country music kind of quality. Simple delivery, simple beat. This smooth track, titled "Lover," will be one dedicated to masses of soul-crushed lovers and smashed hearts that 2018 will surely leave behind. 

As for Jamie, I was never her lover, but somehow the words she wrote to me made me feel that way, from time-to-time. I imagine she is well and has gotten over all the heartbreak that life consistently seemed to keep shooting her way..

I hope. 

P.S. for anyone out in Austin next week/weekend, check her live. Ashley plays guitar too, aside from her lovely singing, coding and video-directing. #babe
