Watch the video below.
Set in motion by its tenderhearted melodies and piano structures played by Alex Lebowitz, “Spring Street” feels familiar and comfortable as Ashley Elle expands on the memoir of a touching family experience. “I wrote and recorded this song after I’d just found out that my parents were separating,” she recalls. “The lyrics came straight from my journal, and the final vocals used were that of real and raw emotion. Music is truly my therapy, and this song was my way of trying to conceptualize the feeling a child may have when grieving undeniable changes and separation of their family.”
“Spring Street” is sprinkled with emotional and harrowing pain drawn from her firsthand experience, yet it is evident in this video that it is also a song of strength, beauty, and power. Family is important to us all, but no family is the same. Ashley Elle realizes this as she dives deeper into her childhood experience through this song. With lyrics like, “Family doesn’t mean everyone stays there forever” and “Our family’s not perfect, but we try to be.” The mother-daughter relationship can be one of the most valuable parts of a young girl’s life, even when imperfect.
“Since the day I wrote ‘Spring Street,’ I knew I wanted to do a live performance of the song,” she says. “Thank you to Revolver Recordings for making it happen and handling this track with the same amount of love and care that went into the original version. I am beyond happy to finally share this with the world.”
