Today, we are pleased to join forces with the great Remy Garrison has returned with the release of her new music video for “Sorta, Kinda, Maybe,” a visual that captures the upbeat and free-spirit nature of adolescence and teenage love through quick glimpses in the life of Garrison’s life and romance.
About the song, Garrison comments “Shooting the video for Sorta, Kinda, Maybe was so exciting for me! I absolutely loved everyone that was apart of it! The video for Sorta, Kinda, Maybe is about a guy that is in my band and we start going on dates and fall for each other. The inspiration for the title Sorta, Kinda, Maybe came from this guy I was taking to awhile back. I would say “Sorta” and he would follow by saying “Kinda” and then I added “Maybe”. It always made us laugh. Then it occurred to me that it would make a good song idea.”
Remy Garrison was born to be a singer. Hailing from Birmingham, Alabama, she had a natural gift for music from an early age that stunned everyone around her. “I’d hear music on the radio or TV, I’d hear it once or twice, and then I’d just know it,” she explains, “It was instinctive.” Coming from a nurturing home, her family were quick to rally round her and put her talents in front of people who needed to hear them. “My dad is a songwriter because of me,” she laughs, “He’s a lawyer, but he started writing to help get me in co-writes in Nashville.”
A relative newcomer to music city, she quickly started dazzling industry veterans with her intense commitment to craft and process. “I came in to my first co-write with a melody, and a title, and I knew how I wanted it to go. The people I was working with were surprised I came in with so much.’” she explains, “So I’ve done it in every write since then. I’m never unprepared.”
Her tenacity has those in the know on the edge of their seats waiting for her upcoming single drop. But for those coming in fresh, what can they expect from this Southern firecracker? “I’m a little bit of everything,” says Garrison, “I have a song for every mood. Love songs, feel good songs, songs that’ll make you cry, songs that’ll make you wanna go and slash your ex’s tires…
Not that you should do that.” Drawing from a range of influences encompassing everyone from Aretha Franklin to Lizzo, Garrison loosely defines her sound loosely. “I do write towards pop country, but one song can be more country, one song can be more pop, one song can be a bit more rock,” she clarifies, “I just write about life. The song is whatever it is meant to be.”
Garrison’s empathy as a human being is quickly becoming a cornerstone of her brand as an artist, her effusive positivity easily winning people over to her troupe. “You were born uniquely you, you should love yourself.” she explains jovially, adding “I want people to feel like they’re having fun with what I’m doing. I want them to feel represented in me and my songs.”
When it comes to representation, Garrison is already mindful of what that means to her. Even at this relatively early point in her career she is planning for an empowered future. “I love girl power. And I don’t feel like women get recognized enough in our industry,” she says, matter-of-factly, “So when I made my team, I made a girl team.” With a majority female cabal around her, she is beginning as she means to continue, by amplifying and empowering the women in her orbit.
