Run is the lead single off Singer/Songwriter Nick Deutsch’s EP “Crazy Ride”. Run chronicles the decay of a relationship between two men, one whom is unable to break free from the destructive bonds of shame. While heartbreaking, it’s ultimately a story about perseverance as the lead singer discovers the strength to leave the relationship behind. It’s written for anyone whose been through the heartbreak of falling for somebody who can’t love you back.
As many of you know, I’ve spent the better part of this year writing and recording my record “Crazy Ride.” While largely a meditation on the loss of my mother, it also explores the heartbreak, confusion and excitement that govern life. I don’t think it’s possible to experience loss without somehow gaining a new lens with which to view the miracle and occasional misery of human life. With that said, while I’ve become more fearless in chasing my singer/songwriter dreams, for many years I’ve struggled with both how to and whether or not to address my sexuality within my writing. Despite coming out at 13, I have never made a conscious effort at merging my personal and professional life. Generally I’ve stayed within the realm of caution, telling myself, “it’s about the music.” Now that my video “Run” is coming out, I know it’s time for me to take a strong stance as a member of and an advocate for the LGBTQ community, exploring my truth and building strength with anyone who carries the burden of difference.
