Nashville, TN, August 30, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Big Noise and singer-songwriter Mason Zgoda are proud to announce the release of "Where Else Can I Go."
The seven-song EP, written entirely by Mason, is named for its upbeat title track "Where Else Can I Go," a song about a neurotic young woman who moves and starts a new life every time troubles come her way.
According to Zgoda, the song stands as an ironic and exaggerated picture of herself and her inner desire to run from problems. "You have to laugh or you'll cry, as they say. That was the point of 'Where Else Can I Go' for me. It’s upbeat, it could even be described as cute, but the happy sound and playful lyrics belie a more troubling reality. Truthfully, it is a song about fear - the fear of failure, of rejection, of things not being what you thought."
The record was written after the artist moved to Los Angeles from her home in Charlotte, NC. Citing So Cal and the music of the sixties as the album's major influences, she says, "I drove down the freeway, listened to 'Pet Sounds.' I stood on the pier, listened to 'Blue.' I went into cafes and bookstores, listened to 'Bridge Over Troubled Water.' I stared at lots of sunsets and let myself be sad. I went out lots of nights and let myself be happy. And in between, I wrote these songs."
In 2016, The Recording Academy placed Mason on the Official Ballot for the 59th Annual Grammy Awards for Best American Roots Performance and Best American Roots Song.
Mason is now embarking on a house concert tour of the South, co-headlining with singer songwriter and friend Mandy Pennington.
Mason is currently residing in Nashville, where she thinks she just might stay.
