Toronto-based singer-songwriter Julie Title is back with her new single “A Wreath To Lay”, which you can stream exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
“A Wreath to Lay was conceived in that weird state between being awake and falling asleep,” says Title. “I had this really traditional folk melody pop into my head and started groggily singing into my phone to record it. The next morning I built the rest of the song around those first few lines. To me, the song is about how the people in our world shape us into who we are, for better or for worse.”
Having struggled since adolescence with abuse and mental illness, songwriting has always been an outlet for Title to create meaning out of feelings of suffering. She uses a lyrical style that is sparse (but powerful) to convey the blend of vulnerability and hope that make up the recurring themes of all her work. Inspired by a diverse array of genres and artists such as Adrienne Lenker, Fiona Apple, Stevie Nicks, Rose Cousins, Sarah Harmer and Courtney Love, Title is a fierce political activist whose music a depth that is INCREDIBLE.
