Song Premiere: Holley Maher, “Whispered Words”

Good things comes in threes. On Holly Maher’s third EP, the Nashville-based songbird teams up with producer Chris Grainger and electro-pop artist Kyle Andrews. The result? Euphorics, a collaborative record that shines a light on all three sides of Maher’s personality: the ballad-singing crooner, the intimate singer/songwriter and the technology-savvy, pop-loving experimenter.

“‘Whispered Words’ is about how rumors, the opinions of others, or even our own doubts can almost undetectably seep into the cracks in a relationship and drive people apart,” says Maher. “I’m a superstitious person, and I believe in the weight of words once they’re spoken. We can breath negativity into our own lives by giving speech to our doubts, or allowing the words of others to cloud our judgement. This song is a reminder that sometimes we need to close our ears.”
