I wrote this song during a time when I felt like a part of my life was out of control and other people were trying to have a negative impact on me. I wrote the song in January 2016 and I wasn’t sure it would ever be something that became a single. But over the last year it has become more and more clear that Earthquake is something other people can relate to. When it was finally decided the process of getting Earthquake ready took so much longer than my previous singles, almost 6 months. Writing Earthquake reminded me that I can be the hero in my own story and that I don’t have to let external experience and other people’s actions have an influence on me. My hope is that Earthquake can do for others what it writing it did for me; they can discover the power they have inside themselves.
