With her knack for penning evocative lyrics paired with timeless melodies and hooks, “Not Where I’m Going” is a poignant, reflective track about coming to terms with knowing something is bad for you even when you desperately want to fall back into the old routine.
“I know that’s where I’ve been/but it’s not where I’m going,” Savannah achingly sings as she comes to terms with her decisions in “Not Where I’m Going“. On the inspiration behind the track Savannah states, “Realizing the things that are bad for you is hard. Making a commitment to put boundaries on those things is harder. Writing this song, I was in a place where my boundaries and personal commitment were being tested. Everything felt wrong, so It was so tempting to go back to old patterns where moderation was not in my vocabulary for anything. The vocal that you hear is the scratch vocal from the day we wrote it, which I think is so fitting for the song. Raw and honest.”
Along with the release of “Not Where I’m Going” is the announcement of Savannah Conley’s new EP, ‘Surprise, Surprise,’ out April 30th. “Not Where I’m Going” follows previously released tracks “Don’t Take Me Home” and “Surprise, Surprise“, all of which will be featured on Savannah’s EP.
Raised in Nashville by a background singer mother and session guitarist father, Savannah Conley’s musical education was deeply ingrained from a young age. She started performing at the age of seven and by nineteen she was taking home the John Lennon Songwriting award. Her debut EP, Twenty Twenty, was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell, John Prine) and released in 2018 to critical acclaim from top tier media outlets.
If you’ve ever wondered what the sonic lovechild of Oasis and Dolly Parton would sound like, look no further than Savannah Conley. Combining nostalgic musicality, unavoidable Southern charm, and a healthy dose of cross-genre inspiration, Conley has carved out a sound that feels both fresh and timeless. Her ability to transcend genre boundaries has led to an impressive resume of gigs supporting Ben Folds, Brandi Carlile, The Head and the Heart, Willie Nelson, and Ruston Kelly, just to name a few.
