GABRIELLE PAPILLON – SHOUT
Shout is a triumph. It starts with the inner rumblings of the mind of an anxious person, someone who struggles with crowds and big groups of people, someone who craves solitude but does not really want to be left alone too long. It becomes the burst of energy and the surge of feeling that comes from the heart’s willingness to fight to be understood, to be less alone. Shout is propelled by equal parts synth, big piano, and anger, exploding in thoughtful, danceable art-pop anthems of uprising, hope and a delirious celebration of self.
I made Shout to share with the ones who are itching to bust out of their shells, of the boxes other people have built for them. For the awkward dancers, and the crowd-averse. For everyone who ever does anything brave even when it is hard. Whether it’s coming out, or reaching out to people you love who have shut you out. Whether it’s saying “Hey! I matter!” Whether it’s setting boundaries. It’s for the people who try new things even though it is terrifying, because they know it might end up being worth it.
I hope that you will like it. I do. But you know what? If you don’t, that’s okay, because I love it, and most days that will be enough. This is me at my very best yet and I am mightily proud of the journey chronicled here.
