It's Okay (Not to be Okay)
Written just before brewing chaos changed life as we know it, “It’s Okay (not to be Okay)” was born in Cambria, CA while on my January West Coast Tour of my latest album. Influenced by my musical heroes, Fran Healy of Travis and Michael Stipe of REM, the song reflects current authentic human feelings of anguish and fear surrounded by a giant ambient hug. It’s okay not to be okay. It’s okay to have hard times and bad feelings. And it’s okay to talk about them.
