Canadian singer-songwriter, Jacquie Drew has released a brand new and incredibly heart wrenching track, “Affliction.” The song is about the struggle many people go through to finally commit to a relationship and the pain that come along with that. The track starts out slowly with dreamy soundscapes that are soon met with a beautiful acoustic guitar and Jacquie’s enchanting vocals. Her storyteller voice draws the listener in immediately. “Do I ask too much, or not enough?” is a lyric that really hits home for anyone who has been scared to be vulnerable. It’s a very relatable track that is sure to hit listeners right in the heart. This is the first single from Jacquie’s album which will be dropping later this year.
