Nashville’s pop sensation Chris Jobe shares his new infectious single ‘Lonely Lives’, an ode to finding strength in vulnerability. The single strikes a feel-good beat, but with a much deeper undertone to it; whilst the production playfully displays atmospheric elements and electronic synths, the lyricism delves into important themes such as insecurity, empathy, and honesty.
“‘Lonely Lives’ is about how people hide their insecurities by trying to seem fine on the outside, which results in shutting people out. I wrote the track after attending a show in Nashville. The first person to perform was a super talented producer friend of mine. Despite his giddy intro, it went horribly. I helplessly watched him sink into a dark place as no one dug it. When I tried to console him afterward, he acted as if nothing happened, and that bothered me. If we were all more open and honest when we feel down, then we would give the people around us a chance to empathise in order to realise we’re not so alone.” – Chris Jobe
