Alex Whorms crafts music that is essentially a genre unto itself. From her beloved piano, the Hamilton singer, songwriter and screen composer flows freely and flawlessly between styles and sounds, gracefully blending classic singer-songwriter pop, jazz, rock, folk and almost anything else that strikes her fancy — while investing everything with honest tales and authentic emotions drawn from her own life and experiences.
Alex shares “One Day I’ll Be Gone” in anticipation of her third EP due later this year. This is a song telling you to go for it, whatever “it” is. Not settling, or becoming complacent or too comfortable. It’s about chasing down those special moments and experiences, and truly appreciating them in the moment instead of wasting time “wishing and waiting” for them to happen.
Artist Statement : I wrote the first draft of “One Day I’ll Be Gone” when I was a 12th grade student in my hometown of Pickering. I was thinking about how I would be moving away for the first time to attend university in less than a year. I didn’t know where I would be going yet, which felt very exciting and full of possibilities. But at the same time, I was sad at the thought of leaving my hometown and childhood friends. Some of my older friends had graduated the year before and were already gone. This was a song to help me come to terms with those changes.
