"...All the wonderful pieces together encompass a beautiful harmonic atmosphere, often with melancholy, and, from time to time, with sadness, although never veering into a depressive direction. No, as paradoxical as it might sound, in this sadness lies a bit of happiness. The voice of our protagonist is uncommon: partly it goes in the direction mentioned above (Nancy Griffith) then it swings a bit in the direction of Dolly Parton. Ultimately, however, she proves to be a voice all her own along with a soft, fragile expression. This all adds up to highly emotional songs that are filled with harmony and beautiful shine. In the end, enriched with a wonderful string quartet, we are sent off the record with music that inspires dreaming and relaxation."

I am SO incredibly excited to finally share with you the official music video for my new song, "Push On"! It's a song about perseverance that I wrote with my pal Robby Hecht down in Nashville and recorded in Los Angeles with my brilliant production team Anthony J. Resta and Karyadi Sutedja. "Push On" is about finding the strength to take a step when you think you can't take one more. It's about moving on through loss and heartbreak, and keeping your head up when you feel defeated. I know I've felt all these things this year and have used this song as a reminder for myself to keep going, like the little girl in the music video.
I hope you love the song and video. If you've got a story of determination, share it on social media with the tag #PushOn.
I feel really lucky to have had the talented team of director Nathan Laver and animator Kathleen Gleeson create this beautiful video. Please share the hell out of it.
