“It’s about getting to that point in a relationship where you’re sick of going around and around talking about the same issue with your partner and it’s time to wave the white flag,” Huett says. “We’ve all been there. You just don’t think it’ll get solved, and it’s like, ‘Oh, just shut the fuck up and hold me.'”
An official video for “STFU & Hold Me” — shot on a road trip to Calipatria, CA — will be released soon.
Huettgrew up in Riverside, California, with her ear glued to the radio, listening to everything from pop acts like Tom Petty and Pink, to ’90s country superstars. Not long after she decided to move to Nashville to pursue her music career, she was hired as a backing vocalist for Taylor Swift, with whom she toured for three and a half years. With Swift’s blessing, she decided to come off the road and throw herself into writing her own music. Huett quickly lined up a publishing deal with Warner Chappell, began writing songs, and worked on developing her eclectic pop sound. Now signed to Interscope Records, Huett delivers her songs with a genuine vulnerability that makes her work appealingly relatable. Her sly lyrics go down smooth thanks to her intimate vocals and bright melodies.
