“burnout” is Gillian Heidi‘s favorite track from her upcoming album, 3AM, and it brings you into the emotional world of her younger self. It’s a heartwarming tune that many can relate to about growing older and wearier from life’s tumultuous happenings. She sings, “If she’s all you are now, do you think that she’d be proud? Or would she wish that she had never grown up? Go through the pains and the change that it makes in you… Don’t know who you are, so you look to the stars; maybe they’ll tell you. But your head’s in the clouds. All stars do is burnout…”
This Boston songstress uses her music as a conduit of truth, and it shines through her soulful vocals and the delicate melodies from her guitar and piano. She takes simple matters and explores them with poetic eloquence and thoughtful clarity, quite impressively for a 16-year-old songwriter.
Deserving a seat next to other young stars like Billie Eilish and Lennon Stella, Gillian Heidi strives for full authenticity. She takes her music seriously and keeps it close to her heart while she takes it to the rest of the world.
