The heartfelt number explores the feelings of chasing an unrequited love and the heartache that comes with the feeling like you’re continuously changing yourself into the person they desire.

“I wrote Ballerina at a time in my life where I didn’t feel like I was going anywhere. I was tired of going around in circles, chasing after someone and getting nothing in return. Ballerina is a metaphor for knowing that you can’t become the person who you think they want you to be. You can only be yourself.”  – Steph Wood

Ballerina is a beautiful debut from a very talented young artist, we’re excited to hear more from Steph as she makes waves in her career. It’s available Friday but you can listen right here exclusively today.
