Gild Walton – “Convince My Mind” lyric video

“I tell everyone I’m doing better without you. It’s not easy when you’re falling apart. It’s not easy when you no longer know who you are. I’m overdosing every morning so I don’t have to think about you. Sipping medicine to fix my mind, I’m nothing if not blue. When I wake up in the evening, might be seven in the afternoon, I get so high to convince my mind that I’m not missing you.” – lyrics

‘Convince My Mind’ tells a heartfelt tale about a young woman who struggles to cope with life after her significant other’s departure. Apparently, she’s been trapped in a bad dream ever since he left her loveless, drowning in tears. To cope with the pain, she gets high to convince her mind that she doesn’t miss him. Also, she tells people that she’s doing better without him, but deep down inside she’s falling apart miserably.

‘Convince My Mind’ contains a relationship-based narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and razor-sharp lyricism. Also, the likable tune possesses piano-driven instrumentation flavored with a  warm emotional pop aroma. Furthermore, “Convince My Mind” introduces listeners to Gild Walton and her dark experiences with overcoming drug addiction and prostitution.

“When I first read the DM from Gild and listened I was overtaken by how simply perfect it was from top to bottom. I was blown away by not only her music but her artistic abilities. They are just so deep. I can’t wait for everyone to hear what I hear and see what I see.” – Tommy Brown stated

Gild Walton translates life’s beauty, pain, and truth into haunting lush pop music inflected with cinematic overtones and poetic lyrics. As a kid, she developed a fascination with the darker side of culture, obsessing over Edward Scissorhands, The Phantom of the Opera, and Marilyn Manson in equal measure. Beset with depression and later self-harm, she shuffled through high schools before opting for homeschool. Aspiring to a career as an opera singer, she eventually attended Utah State University, where she ultimately decided to major in criminal justice with hopes of working in the FBI cybercrime division.

However, life took a series of unbelievable twists and turns. Faced with financial hardship, she covered expenses by operating a phone sex line, which eventually lead to webcam modeling and sex work. Drugs and alcohol anesthetized the shame, but couldn’t save her. Returning to San Diego, she detoxed alone and triumphantly got clean. On a whim, she shot a direct message to Tommy Brown [Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber] with her music enclosed. Within ten minutes, conversations about her own artistry began. In the aftermath, she signed to his Champagne Therapy Music Group and Republic Records and makes her introduction with “Convince My Mind.”
