Jodee Lewis Announces Americana Single, “It Ain’t Killed Me Yet”
The new Americana single from Jodee Lewis, “It Ain’t Killed Me Yet” is an empowering kiss off from a broken-hearted lover picking up the pieces and starting over. With emotive vocals and a rolling chorus, the single has the last word, as Lewis gives an active voice to anyone left with the short end of the stick in a broken relationship. “It Ain’t Killed Me Yet” is off the upcoming album, Buzzard’s Bluff, due out April 6.
Love isn’t always a recipe for success, and somebody is inevitably left out in the cold. “It Ain’t Killed Me Yet” gives the broken hearted a voice. Every musical element drives the big picture home. From the infectious melody to the dancing fiddle, each piece builds on the whole. Lewis even added some key changes that remedy a sense of rising determination, and pay tribute to traditional country songwriters like Merle Haggard. She explains, “We decided to put a couple modulations in - something I’ve never done before, but heard all the time on the old country tracks I grew up listening to - particularly Juice Newton’s ‘Queen of Hearts’”. That change creates a literal shift and brings the song to it’s empowered resolution. Even though there isn’t always a clean break, you can hold your head high as you walk away.
