Queensland talent Aspy Jones encourages listeners to honour their emotions on empowering new song.

In pandemic period of history where many people across the globe have had their lives and livelihoods turned upside down, the ability to acknowledge, accept and express our emotions in healthy ways is critical now more than ever. Drawing on his own experiences, Aspy Jones is encouraging others to explore their feelings, on his uplifting new single So They Say, out 12 March.

Written through his unique perspective on life and the difficulties he’s faced learning to live with autism and anxiety, Aspy’s newest track implores us all to listen to, and respect, our emotional needs.

So They Say is all about dealing with emotions. We all have them, and you must learn to live with them. I hope I’m getting better at dealing with mine,” said Aspy, who’s currently based in regional Queensland.

“Because of my Asperger’s diagnosis as a child, I’ve spent my whole life trying to build relationships with people and I’ve had the most success with that through my songs. It was a surprise to me that people could relate even though most of them don’t have autism.”

Working with ARIA award-winning producer Paulie Bromley and Steve Summers at Yama-Nui Studio, So They Say is the first taste of a new batch of songs Aspy has been writing which have more of a roots/pop vibe than his previous releases. For him, song-writing is a cathartic outlet.

“I constantly find myself scrawling lyrics on the back of beer mats and napkins or singing new melodies into my phone. I’ve got notebooks full of songs, it’s just the way I express myself. I only learnt to play guitar so that I could bring what was in my head to life.”

“On So They Say, as with all of my music, I’m aiming to make a connection with my fans.”
