I TRIED WORDS
Moriah Bailey, Oklahoma's experimental folk-pop harpist/songwriter, releases the long-awaited follow-up to her 2017 LP with I Tried Words, out December 2, 2022. "I Tried Words" is a reflection on being taught that it is impolite to say no and/or moments when Bailey should has said no and her no has been violated. The album sits with the experience of speaking and not being heard and how that experience has shaped her relationships with herself and others. Within that, the album explores definitions and expectations of womanhood and femininity.
