Utah based Americana singer-songwriter Alicia Stockman just unveiled her new single “Halfway To Houston” which is off her forthcoming debut album These Four Walls. Produced by the acclaimed artist Mary Bragg, who has been deemed “Nashville’s Americana Queen,” the song is a heartfelt reflection of love gone wrong and love eventually lost.
Alicia Stockman, who draws influence from legendary songwriters such as Patty Griffin, Brandi Carlile and Jewel, is best known for her stripped-down storytelling and intimate musical delivery, which touches the hearts of her listeners and encourages us all to be a little more vulnerable throughout our daily lives. In “Halfway To Houston,” Stockman recounts memories of pain, longing, and grief for a former lover. Backed by a melody reminiscent of classic Americana tunes, the song features gentle instrumentation and soulful lyricism written as poetry that awakens old memories of the special people that have come and gone from our lives. Stockman confides, “I wrote the chorus of this song while hiking a trail network near my house. It was a healthy way to process the end of this relationship while my ex-partner moved out of the house.” Cathartic and emotive, it is the perfect track to listen to while driving in the car or during a quiet time as a way to move through and release difficult emotions.
“Halfway to Houston” is the second single from Alicia Stockman’s upcoming album These Four Walls, which is set to release on November 5th of this year. The album is a 10-track body of “songs to make you feel and feel seen.” The album says, “I see you. I’ve been there. I understand.” With much more music on the way, we can’t wait to hear what’s next for this talented artist on the rise.
