heart to a place where emotions are faced head on.

longing had a sound, ‘Waking Up Ain’t Easy’ would be that sound. I
wanted it to sound timeless and classic both lyrically and musically,”
explains Brit. “I wanted people to be able to insert their own story
into the song.”

Brainard adds, “The melancholy song is starkly
simple while embracing the complexities of love, loss and depression.
And Brit Taylor, with a sensuous sound and a tear in her voice, brings
comfort to anyone mourning a loss by simply letting them know they
aren’t alone in their sadness or their depression,” adds Brainard.

liquid alto singing voice, with bright, “teardrop” accents. The
heartache ballad has a languid, echoey atmosphere that is enchanting.
I’m smitten. Send more.”

Easy’ made waking up a little easier.  It gave me hope. Like the pain I
went through had a purpose.”
