about

“I rented a cottage in the Berkshires and brought my guitar with me,” says English of her writing process. While the singer-songwriter stays true to her indie-folk roots on the Savannah Theory, fans of English’s first record, City Limits (NewSong Recordings, 2017), may be surprised to hear more electric guitar on this compilation.

The songwriter offers a fully realized version of herself in this collection of melancholy songs, with dark lyrics and instrumentation and an introspective, indie-pop lean.

“You will hear my Fender Jazzmaster guitar featured on much of the album,” says English. “This record demonstrates an honest, sincere insight into the ups and downs of my relationships and life experiences.”

English’s songwriting, paired with her graceful vocals, earned her a finalist spot in the 2015 NewSong LEAF Competition. More recently, in 2019, she won first prize in the Singer/Songwriter category in the New England Songwriting Competition, of which Meghan Trainor is a past contest winner.

lyrics

You don’t know why I’m mad
You don’t know why I’m mad
And you don’t understand
You don’t know why I’m mad

Now I hang on your arm
Like a bad luck charm
Gonna bring you the harm
Gonna wait in the car


You don’t move me
Why’d you choose me?
Excuse me,
I’m not like that,
I’m not,
I’m not like that

You don’t mean what you say
You don’t mean what you say
You just get in the way
You don’t mean what you say


You don’t move me
Why’d you choose me?
Excuse me,
I’m not like that,
I’m not,
I’m not like that
I’m not,
I’m not like that
I’m not,
I’m not like that
