Abby Shreve’s debut single “Misery” is truly something special.
In this upcoming single, Shreve explores the idea of feeling lost and needing help from someone because their hope is being lost. This song will truly transport the audience into the moments in their lives where they felt more lost, increasing their connection to the song and, also, showing them that we all feel differently in moments of “misery.”
Additionally, Abby’s soft vocals help her share her message smoothly, making the audience feel drawn to her voice as she makes us contemplate what “misery” is and the meaning it has for each of us, as she shares what misery feels like to her. The depiction of mental illness that Shreve provides in this song is raw, emotional, and at the same time beautiful – a true reflection of how many of us have felt in times of loneliness and despair.
