Sam Casey Puts Up a "Good Fight"
A dose of Pop goodness
Toronto pop artist Sam Casey’s songs are about her experiences with toxic relationships, struggles with mental illness and fighting through the feeling when things are slipping in and out of control in your life.
“Good Fight” was born out of a conversation between Sam and her co-writer, indie pop artist Laur Elle. They were having a casual discussion about the abundance of female musicians, yet the polarizing lack of females that were in positions of power, as well as the pressure to “look” like an artist rather than just be an artist. From that conversation, came their agreed sentiment that: “All you can do is give it your best go, put up a good fight, and let the pieces fall where they may.”
“Writing this song with Laur Elle showed me that I am really not the only one feeling these things,” says Sam. “I’m not crazy because I feel like the world is crashing down sometimes and the universe is out to get me – I’m just going through something and I will put up my best fight to get over it. Most of all, this song helped me realize that I will fall, lose, be rejected, or have a crazy episode from time to time regardless of how hard I fight the feelings and, if I do fall, then accept it, move on, sweep it under the rug and don’t look back.”
