Behind the music

Read a bit about Sorry CVS directly from Lyrah

Helloooo hellooo! For those who don’t know me, I’m Lyrah :) I’m a writer/producer/singer based in LA. I originally grew up in Pennsylvania, in a sleepy, small town that kinda forced you to find your own source of entertainment (hello music). I played piano since I was 3 and was singing at everything from church to skate park shows. Fast forward to college, when I started writing toplines for EDM, toured with a band as their keyboardist, and started to teach myself how to produce. And now today I love making my own music that feels like someone’s personal soundtrack in a sad but dancey world. It’s hard to write about this song, because the song was intentionally written to never state the very thing it’s about — cancer. But to truly know the song, you need to know the backstory. A few months ago, my brother started experiencing some health issues. His doctors weren’t concerned and even denied requests for booking any additional testing. My mom got on the phone with his doctor and begged, yet nothing changed. My brother and parents independently secured an appointment. We went from a doctor refusing to schedule any testing to a stage 4 cancer diagnosis. From shows like “Breaking Bad” you imagine that someone sits you down and creates a space for you while you process difficult news. But instead, you get results uploaded to your chart for you to interpret on your own. A few days later a doctor will call to say “I’m so sorry” and they’ll bill that 5 minute phone call to your insurance. And then you’ll pay your $20 co-pay for a call you’ll never forget. The healthcare system often feels so criminal. In response to this, my mom joked that we should just start stealing things. When we went to CVS later that day, I may or may not have stolen a pack of peanut m&ms to make her happy. That night I went to my brother’s apartment. And while he played guitar, I told him about the peanut m&m adrenaline rush of the day. I joked to his girl friend (now wife!) that we should just write about stealing from CVS but then that’s exactly what we did. The chorus was the first thing we wrote and verse 2 flowed out fast behind it: Chorus: Stealing from the CVS this time. I’m not sorry bout your bottom line. Doing donuts in the parking lot. I mean I’m eating em with all my heart. They say the best things in life are free, and I can tell you if I know what they mean. They say the best things in life are free, and if I take more will it ever hit me? Verse 2: Baby shout me out on the intercom. Peanut m&ms in my inner arm. Hope you got me full screen in the backroom. Filling up the shelves of my bedroom. Writing this song made us laugh. It felt so cheeky and comical. It was exactly what we needed. I knew we had something good just listening to it on guitar, even before we tracked it out in ableton. I then drove back to LA and worked on the production with Nick Booth. We sped it up from 110BPM to 145BPM and the song came to life in a whole new way. 13 versions later and it's exactly what we want. This song means so much that I wouldn't give it anything less <3 Given the background of this song, I want to give 100% of the ETH from this drop to cancer research. I’m currently finding the best people and projects to fund directly. Thanks for reading this and being part of this moment with me. Love you all (for real), Lyrah ---------- Credits: Written by Steven Warner, Jackie Rogers, Lyrah Produced by Nick Booth, Jon Wienner, Lyrah Additional guitar by Benji Cormack from Slenderbodies
