Up and coming singer-songwriter Abby Shreve releases her debut single "Misery." The single is now available for streaming and download on all digital streaming platforms.
Newcomer Abby Shreve's new rock single "Misery
" encapsulates the feeling of drowning beneath one's mental struggles and the desperate reach for a hand in the dark. As Shreve's pitch-perfect voice weaves a heartbreaking story, the instrumental accompaniment of searing guitar and a pounding drum beat that build to an electrifying final verse. The sentiments Shreve shares are ones that many can relate to ("Shaken hands and shaken hopes/I am trying to hold you close/Yet I am forgotten again/Why am I here, why do I breathe/Why I am tired, why I can't sleep?") and the grungy production harkens back to the early days of female rock vocalists breaking the scene in the 1970s and 1980s. Listeners are wrapped in "Misery
" from start to finish thanks to Shreve's hypnotizing tone and the emotion that cuts through every riff.

Jill Pavel, owner of Heart
Group says, "Abby takes you on a journey when she sings a song. She truly takes your breath away with her seamless segues from verse, to chorus, pre-chorus and back. I have never worked with an artist who can navigate her way through several vocal delivery changes in one song. It is just a joy to watch her bring her written vision to life on the microphone."
