“Hung Me Dry” is a collection of songs composed during and inspired by Watts’ five years living in the city of Ottawa; an emotional and evocative art piece that illustrates Watts’ longing for relief amid the solitude and darkness of a city.
Watts features her raw vocals and classic fingerpicking on acoustic guitar, and debuts an elevated sound with lush arrangements of bowed bass, warbling würiltzer, and subtle drums, that project warmth and juxtapose with her somber lyrical themes. Watts opens her grieving heart for the duration of “Hung Me Dry”, engages your own heart’s strings, and immerses your memory with hers of a mid-sized metropolis.
