“Raised By Rivers” is a young man willing to confront his difficult upbringing for the first time.
"This has certainly been my most vulnerable and personal song I’ve recorded, and that process has been a challenge. My journey with self-acceptance and keeping my demons at bay is ongoing, I’ll probably feel that way for the rest of my life. I hope to continue to embody this value of mine by staying honest and open in my songwriting."
It’s a coming of age experience to look down the barrel of a chaotic relationship and decide against it due to your better judgement from your life experience. I think it’s an experience so many of us have in our twenties. This song is the story of the first time this happened to me.
