New Music Alert: Chris Jobe

Nashville-based multi-instrumentalist, Chris Jobe, is insanely talented. On top of playing his own music, he writes and produces his art. His single, “Cry” is vulnerable and a look into his own head and thoughts.

He tells me, "At times, I feel so bogged down with noise from social comparisons, stereotypes, and the weird gender roles that come with them, it can be really hard to feel like myself or even feel at all. The day I wrote ‘Cry' with my friend Anna, all I wanted to do was actually cry and feel that release, but I couldn’t, so we did the next best thing and wrote a song about it."

"Behind the scenes, I've had my fair share of fights with anxiety and depression since I was 18. I hold back tears and show little emotion in these battles. To me, crying seems like defeat, and the way that society views crying doesn’t help that feeling. I always think, 'I'm supposed to be happy.’ So, with the help of my friend Anna Graceman, I wrote and produced a song that had the emotions I wanted to feel so bad, but wouldn’t let myself have."

    March 25 can be noted as a pivotal date in my life. No, it isn't my birthday. For all the 1D fangirls out there, it was the shock of the century when Zayn Malik left the band. As a Zayn girl, my heart broke into a million pieces. I think this hit me harder than any actual breakup. All was forgiven, though, when he coincidentally released his solo album that same day a year later. Also, don't make me choose as I love Z and the band equally. I'm currently in Justin Timberlake's hometown of Memphis, Tennessee working as a personal trainer. If I'm not at the gym, you can more than likely find me at a concert. Feel free to find me on social media. I love meeting fellow fangirls! Twitter : samfonggg, Instagram : samantha_fong, Snapchat : samanthafong
