Julie Neff’s Powerful Vocals And Harrowing Angelic Production Creates A Once-In-A-Lifetime Experience In “A Lot Left To Learn”
Delicately weaving between difficult emotions and deft vocalizations, Julie Neff delivers an astoundingly emotional performance as she reflects on lost love and perseverance in her newest single, “A Lot Left To Learn” – the final single and video from her Over It EP.
Touching on the vulnerability of sharing yourself with someone, “A Lot Left To Learn” traverses the terrain of love not meant to be – how sweet a partner can be, yet they still may not be for you. Love comes in many shapes and sizes, and while some love is forever, it often is merely a stepping stone – a point of learning in a lifelong journey.
Julie Neff’s ability to create powerful melodies and driving rhythms through her vocalizations is uncanny at best. Her incandescent storytelling is fueled by heartbreak, creating a powerful connection between the breakthrough artist and her productions.
Neff talks about her heartache, saying “I wrote this track right after finding out that someone I really cared about couldn’t continue spending time with me for reasons out of both of our control. It was a moment of deep heartache – but without the anger or bitterness that can make those moments easier.”
Without distracting emotions and vices to occupy her mind, Neff put her sorrows to the ivory keys, letting her heart and hands do the talking as she sat passenger to her emotionally charged cognitive dissonance.
“The song came swiftly,” Neff recalls. “I wrote it on piano, which is not my typical go-to. Since then, I have found beauty and comfort in singing this track. It helped soothe that pain that I felt by creating a piece that I find heartbreakingly beautiful to sing.”
“A Lot Left To Learn” is a beautifully simple ballad. Slow movement and rich harmonization from cello and background singers give the production enough movement to stir up our emotions while keeping us entranced – harrowingly similar to the ups and downs of heartbreak. The song feels deeply eerie all while providing the listener with the comforting touch of angelic voices. It is our own personal emotional battle. It is raw – and it is real.
