Deanna DeMola Releases New Single and Music Video- 'Worst In Me'

About "Worst in Me"
"Worst In Me" is a record written by Singer/Songwriter Deanna DeMola and Grammy Nominated Songwriter/Producer Jimmy Greco. Written, produced and recorded at Soul Azul Music Studios in Whitestone, New York, "Worst In Me" is about the struggle of living in a digital, superficial society and the pressure that our most authentic self will never be good enough.
Human beings love validation. We are constantly searching for it, and for so many, social media is an easy way to provide that. Let's be honest, Instagram is fake. Everyone on that platform is not nearly as happy or as perfect as they like to present themselves. But perception is reality, isn't it? Being a music artist, having a social media presence is essential. It's basically your business card. Although Deanna is aware of this, she was tired of the toxicity that comes with being on social media. She found herself constantly comparing herself to unrealistic beauty standards, finding it difficult to not measure her success based on likes and followers. It was frustrating her that a place that was supposed to help showcase her creativity, was only amplifying her insecurities and self doubt.
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.” – Lao Tzu
Deanna's goal with writing "Worst In Me" was to express that society and their standards are bringing out the worst in her and making it difficult to be accepting of the person she has become and grown to love. But the message isn't just for herself, she also hopes to reach others, specifically in her generation who too are struggling with self love and the negative influence that social media can promote.
