From the artist, on “Cabin Fever”
I wrote this song about my cabin fever during a low period of my summer depression, pre-Covid, but the song and video have had renewed relevance from the pandemic and remain poignant for even more people than before. The video, filmed while home alone, attempts to show my day-to-day activities trying to get myself to do something, anything. The song was later released to all streaming services in 2020 on my first EP, Robin’s Egg Blue.
