listen hear! Song of the Day: Allison Ponthier is her own "Harshest Critic"
listen hear! spotlights a song we like and think you will too!
Texas native/New York transplant singer-songwriter Allison Ponthier just released the deeply introspective song, “Harshest Critic.” It’s the follow up to her debut single, “Cowboy”, and “I Lied,” her clever collaboration with Lord Huron, a track we recently features as a listen hear! Song of the Day.
“I wrote ‘Harshest Critic’ around the time when labels were knocking on my door, and I kept wondering what it would feel like when other people were judging me. It ended up being a song about how, when you’re an artist, everything feels like life or death. But in reality, it’s your happiness and who you are as a person that really matter. You might as well enjoy the ride, because no one’s ever going to be as hard on you as you are.”
Catch the listen hear! Song of the Day each weekday morning at 11:10.
