Singer, Eryn Allen Kane makes a return to the big stage three years after her last project thrilled the industry and she titles this new project, “A Tree Planted By Water” and it captures the amazingness that is her music and her growth in the last five years.
The new project is an affirmation song of some sorts as it showers praises on black women, praising them and their strength and really, this project will connect with a lot of black people on so many levels.
Songs on the project include “Deeply Rooted”, “Feel The Need”, “Fragile”, “With You”, “Love Supreme” and more and she didn’t hold back on any of these.
Beyond being a project that praises black women, it is also a song through which she is trying to find herself. After her last project three years ago, she had difficulties both physically and internally and this project is the one with which she is breaking free of those shackles.
She shared her story about making the project too, saying that: “I [was suffering] from a permanent vocal injury, and that’s why it took me forever to come back and make music. During that downtime where I couldn’t sing and I was trying to get everything together, I started exploring all these different ideas about family and I just started thinking about my mom and talking to her a lot. Just listening to her stories and how similar they were to mine and how similar her struggles and stories of pain were to mine…I just thought that was really interesting and I decided to write a song about it.”
She also teamed up with popular singer and songwriter, Aja Monet on one of the songs and we recommend listening to the songs right away.
