As she continues her journey to pop superstardom, local songstress Carli J Myers is back with a breezy new single titled ‘Just Doing Me’ – the official follow-up track to singles ‘Just Saying’ and the Mathew Gold-assisted banger ‘Crazy’.
Catchy and perfect to dance along to in front of the mirror or out on the town, this song is filled to the brim with philosophies of self-efficacy and independence. As a qualified and practicing Industrial Psychologist, Carli has written lyrics for it which are also in line with concepts like mindfulness.
“[‘Just Doing Me’ is] about catching the adventures of life and falling into those colourful moments which only really come around once,” Carli tells us of the lyrical content of the track.
The track was written while Carli was in Toronto for the annual Canadian Music Week conference, where she worked with a number of exceptional musicians and songwriters – including Maia Davies and Bobby Morales.
“I was so taken by how music brings different people and cultures together,” says Carli. “I found my attention split between my hometown of Joburg and the inspiration right in front of me there – and that’s how we wrote ‘Just Doing Me’. It captures each emotion I felt and every moment I experienced, how you can be excited about life while still being grounded in your own reality.”
