EEESSS OUT!! 🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳 And don't worry, I still don't have my sh*t together. Find out more below! :D

I wrote many (i.e. all) of the songs on Best Self out of frustration with myself. "WHY CAN'T I GET MYSELF TO HUMAN LIKE ALL OF THE OTHER HUMANS?!" I would (and still) cry. Why can't I just text back? Why can't I keep up? Why do I keep biting off more than I can chew? Why don't I learn?! 

And then I found out that there are many reasons why I struggle to human like other humans. Namely, like many of us are realizing, ADHD is real, depression is real, and anxiety is stupid. I mean, REAL. And for those reasons, my best is going to look a heck of a lot different than the wakes-up-at-5am, fictional, yoga goddess/girl boss that I keep comparing myself to. Heck, fictional yoga goddess/girl boss probably has her own comparison traps that she gets stuck in, too! Also, (importantly) she’s not real!

In a world that is more complicated than ever, why are we harder on ourselves than ever? And seemingly more bent on achieving perfection? There are a lot of good reasons for that, I think, and they all begin and end with a system that is not very much interested in the wellness of the human spirit. 

You are not crazy. THIS *gestures to everything* is crazy. You are doing your best, and I promise you that it is more than enough. I hope you know that, and I hope you listen to our album knowing with your whole heart how ridiculously complicated everything is, and by some amazing miracle, how very, truly awesome YOU are. 

You are enough and I LOVE YOU SO MUCH! ❤️❤️❤️

Shrink

Repost from The Little Miss...

OUR NEW SINGLE, "Shrink," IS OUT TODAY!

On a record of fully produced and fleshed out tracks (thanks to the magic of Daniel Grimsland, Tyler Grinham and Omar Leyva), I'm releasing this stripped down, one-take acoustic song as a single because, frankly, I'm feeling it the most these days, and figured that you might be feeling these things, too.

"Shrink" is about how hard it is to be nice to oneself. In a year that left so many of us alone with our thoughts, I think many of us saw firsthand how much our thoughts impacted our desire and motivation to work, call up loved ones, or simply, to exist. "Shrink" was the realization of this phenomenon in my own life, particularly as I've come to terms with my own anxiety and depression.

If you're like me, you've spent most of your life thinking that self-criticism is simply self-accountability. We're afraid to be nice to ourselves because we think it'll mean that we'll lose motivation to achieve, perform or be responsible. In the last few years, however, I've found it to be quite the opposite. The harder I am on myself, the more that I feel the need to avoid, numb out or hide.

It's not our fault for being hard on ourselves, either. Most things in this world tell us not to be satisfied with ourselves or our lives. We're always hearing how there are better ways to live, work, have relationships, eat, exercise, look, etc. But what if there aren't? What if everything you're doing is fine, no matter what your brain might be telling you right now?

You may think you need to do more, be more or have more, and I want you to know that I think you're doing great as you already are.

Have a good rest of your day, and if you can, try to be nice to yourself (whatever that means to you). Know that I'll be tryin', too! ❤️

A Life Less Ordinary | Daniel Grimsland on Patreon

I released one of my favorite old instrumentals on my Patreon today!
It's a somewhat whimsical tune, featuring lots of strings, acoustic guitars, and mandolins. This was an early experiment with Garageband. I was just learning how to use it, and was having some fun! The song reminded me of the movie "A Life Less Ordinary", so I decided to borrow the name. There's lots more music and videos over at https://www.patreon.com/danielgrimsland, I hope you check it out, and consider becoming a Patron!

This is what we came up with.

From Bandcamp...

"The Covid-19 pandemic continues to impact all of us, and artists have been hit especially hard as tours and shows are canceled for the foreseeable future. With such a major revenue stream drying up almost entirely, finding ways to continue supporting artists in the coming months is an urgent priority for anyone who cares about music and the artists who create it.

On March 20, 2020, we waived our revenue share in order to help artists and labels impacted by the pandemic. The Bandcamp community showed up in a massive way, spending $4.3 million on music and merch—15x the amount of a normal Friday— helping artists cover rents, mortgages, groceries, medications, and so much more. It was truly inspiring.

But the pandemic and its impact on the music community aren’t over, so today, as well as on June 5, and July 3 (the first Friday of each month), we’re waiving our revenue share for all sales on Bandcamp, from midnight to midnight PDT on each day.

Musicians will continue to feel the effects of lost touring income for many months to come, so we’re also sharing some ideas below on how fans can support the artists they love and how artists can give fans new, creative ways to provide support.

It may sound simple, but the best way to help artists is with your direct financial support, and we hope you’ll join us through the coming months as we work to support artists in this challenging time."
