Nashville-based singer/songwriter Ellisa Sun recently released her new soulful single “Once Upon A Time.”
With captivating lyrics like I’ve been counting sheep, but I can’t sleep, you always creep into my dreams, “Once Upon A Time” is a lyrical fairy tale listeners are sure to fall in love with.
“Sometimes you need to end a relationship in order for both people to feel at peace, but the grief lingers,” Ellisa shares. “This song was a product of that grief and I hope it helps paint a picture of what it feels like to long for someone, yet also know it was better to end things than cling to something that wasn’t working. I want whoever is listening to my music to feel like they’re eating a slice of the best apple pie they’ve ever tasted, by candlelight, while wrapped in a weighted blanket.”
Ellisa launched a wildly successful crowdfunding campaign last year with ifundwomen and successfully raised $15,000 to support her upcoming record, “Sarabi.” The album will feature 8 original songs and a team of Nashville’s finest musicians, producers and songwriters. “Once Upon A Time” is the first single to be released off the album.
