On December 3, Nashville-based singer and songwriter Herine, pronounced “Heron” or “Hair-in,” debuted with her first indie pop single, “Favorite Things.”
The indie artist found her roots in Nashville, the heartlands of songwriting and lyricism. At a young age, she spring-boarded into music. One of her favorite activities (other than playing piano, guitar, and singing in church choir) was playing A&R on carpool rides with demos her best friend’s father had brought home from his work at a label.
Through her colorful lyricism, the pain she experienced during her turbulent upbringing is palpable. Herine struggles with anxiety and depression, and so writing quickly became more than just a childhood hobby— it developed into a coping mechanism and creative safe space to process feelings. Her move to Los Angeles has helped her process these feelings into palpable lyrics, and from lyrics into songs. Using these experiences to develop her skills, voice, and eventually her artistry, Herine bursts onto the indie pop scene with a vivid, intensely emotional voice, ready to tell her true story.
Embracing the most imperfect part of her identity, Herine hopes to inspire listeners to hold on through any adversity they may be facing. This is a new beginning Herine is excited to share with many who also need liberation and the courage to move forward to achieve such a dream. In an interview with thread, the artist shares, “In being open about my flaws and traumas, I hope to inspire listeners to hold on through any adversity they may be facing and let go through the songs. This is a new beginning I want to share with anyone who seeks the same freedom, the eye in the storm, that music has always brought me.”
