when i moved to nashville a decade ago i arrived at the greyhound station from atlanta with my guitar and my cat mortimer hidden in my bag. i had a headful of stories and songs. i quickly realized that women who looked like me who lived with their families in north nashville weren’t exactly celebrated and centered in music city. so with a defiance bordering on delusional, i decided to celebrate myself.
on this #internationalwomensday i encourage every woman out there to do the same. claim your crown. take up all the space. say your name. sing your blues.

in that vein, please swipe for a poem by my idol Lucille Clifton on the importance of celebrating the very act of surviving this world run by mad men. ⚡️✨ #iwd2019 #nashville #reclaimingtheblues #sayhername 📷: @nolanknight_

Paris. I can’t wait to bring my blues back to you. See y’all soon at @popupdulabel 🖤🖤 #dopequeentour #silences 📷: @texmexington

i remember writing this line in “bring her back” after feeling frustrated at how i was too often addressed in the world. i think about how women are so often infantilized and dismissed in our day to day lives. put some respect on your tone when u talking to us. don’t call us sweetheart, don’t call us love. i ain’t your baby. 🖤(this would make a pretty sick T-shirt too, if i do say so myself!) #silences #dopequeentour #bringherback #listentowomen #respect

last week before our show at @roughtradenyc i took a choppy cab ride from @atlanticrecords through Manhattan and Brooklyn with Jon Pareles of @nytimes where I told him the story of my silent life in NYC as a 19 year old girl who moved to the city to find the New York Julian Casablancas sang so convincingly of in his songs. Fast forward 13 years and that same girl has the ears of the New York Times. Thank you Jon for allowing me to speak candidly on the blues and its importance in my life as a southern black woman. thank you to @aarondessner and @caroranwill for contributing context and nuance. And thank you to all of you who encourage me to speak through my Silences. Stay true to you, center yourself and the world will catch up eventually. Read the full interview at the link in my bio.
