Julia Ivory – “To the Bone” single
“I wrote ‘To the Bone’ sitting at my piano late at night, in the thick of my eating disorder. It was the first piece of music I truly connected with. I poured everything out, without judgment, without pressure. I finally spoke. Now I am on a journey of self-discovery, using music as a way to tell my story. I’m content with how 19 years has directed me so far, though I credit it all to my sheer determination to survive. Though I am alone, I am not afraid. I believe in myself now more than ever. I’m going to keep trying.” – Julia Ivory wrote inside her diary
‘To the Bone’ contains a haunting narrative, pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. The melancholic tune possesses piano-laden instrumentation flavored with a warm emo-pop vibration. Furthermore, “To the Bone” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear from Julia Ivory in the near future as she continues to release new music.
“Soon this day will end and happiness is running thin. Thinner than my veins, will my life end this way?”
“I’ve decided after countless attempts at writing the perfect description of myself to just tell you what the last 19 years of life have brought me. My love for singing and writing started at a young age but began to slip away after graduating high school. I was battling with my identity as an artist but also with my own sense of self. Everyone’s pressure and opinions got to me…so I stopped.
Time away from what I loved revealed so much more than wasted potential. I had to deal with the damaging effects of constantly feeling I was just not good enough. My dreams were hijacked by none other than myself. Why did I do that? I kept filling my dreams with nightmares of perfection. It was so damaging. This dark path I was now walking along started in early 2020 with my diagnosis of Anorexia Nervosa.” – Julia Ivory wrote inside her diary
“This cage is too loud, can someone let me out?”
“Now, in recovery, I reconnected to music as a form of therapy to rebuild the relationship with myself. I used it as a safe place in the darkest of hours and a home to feel welcomed. The trauma of my time spent fighting the inner demons has been erased by my own mind…a form of self-defense I guess? Or fear? Who knows? But every now and then they come back to haunt me.” – Julia Ivory wrote inside her diary
