Today, critically-acclaimed artist Kalie Shorr released her honest new single “Lying To Myself,” a song she wrote after an unsuccessful relationship in Los Angeles late last year. Offering fans a glimpse into her own mistakes, Shorr perfectly blends her pop-punk and country influences as she questions “were you lying to me, or was I lying to myself.” As Shorr turns the page to her forthcoming Open Book: Unabridged deluxe album, due out on December 4, one thing won’t be in question - her authentically irreverent point of view. As seen with her previous single “My Voice” and now “Lying To Myself,” Shorr continues to carve her own path with her self-assured, rebelliously-unique sound.
“Every song on Open Book came from personal experiences, and the songs on Open Book: Unabridged are no different,” says Shorr. “Late one night in West Hollywood with Cora Jane Sugarman and Elias Abid, this song basically fell out. I had just ended things with someone, and I was looking back on it wondering if it really was as serious as it had felt like it was. It's so hard sometimes to keep my head out of the clouds and not idealize situations. This was me taking an honest look inside to see how maybe I had set my expectations too high, and it wasn't their fault. Sonically, I love how this song can feel ethereal while still having the grungy guitars that I love so much. It's one of my favorite tracks that I've produced, and I loved getting to do it with Elias and Skip Black across two different cities.”
Last month, Shorr launched a podcast in partnership with iHeartMedia called “Too Much To Say with Kalie Shorr,” executive produced by nationally syndicated radio host Bobby Bones.
