september stories

Today, we’ve teamed with Ohio alternative/spoken word act September Stories to premiere their brand new lyric video for “Obsession,” a track taken from their most recent InVogue Records release, Unopened Letter. Backed by soothingly delicate piano, singer-songwriter Andrew Baughman’s passionate poetry is front and center, delivering a poignant punch of reality for the listener. You can experience it yourself below.

When asked to offer some insight on the themes present in “Obsession,” Baughman provided the following:

“‘Obsession’ deals with mental disorders—specifically OCD and different anxieties—from the perspective of someone who has them. I’ve been dealing with those disorders my entire life and I feel that a lot of people really don’t take them seriously. Most think that it’s just in your head and that you can simply overcome them at any point, so I just wanted to try to convey what it’s really like and shed some light on the issue.”

Unopened Letter can be purchased digitally through iTunes with physical copies available through InVogue Records.

September Stories will be finishing the Summer Series tour with Chase Huglin and Candy Hearts presented by Substream:

7/1 – Binghampton, NY @ Magic City Music Hall
7/2 – Wareham, MA @ Tesno House
7/3 – Poughkeepsie, NY @ My Place Pizza
