With influences ranging from Miley Cyrus to Paramore, Heather Kathryn's dynamic sound and poignant lyrics make her a standout artist in the pop punk genre.

"MY TRAGIC LIFE" is the first single from Heather Kathryn's upcoming EP of the same name, set to release this summer.  "MY TRAGIC LIFE" is a raw and unapologetic exploration of the challenges faced by women pursuing their passion in a male-dominated industry.

Heather Kathryn's bold and unapologetic approach to music sets her apart as an artist to watch in the pop punk scene.

From its inception on her best friend's couch to its release a year later, Heather Kathryn explains her process in creating the song. "I wrote this song with my best friend, and it started as a humorous take on the struggles I face as a woman in the music industry. But as we delved deeper, it became a cathartic expression of the frustrations and obstacles I've encountered."

“It's about reclaiming our voices and refusing to be silenced”

During the recording process, Heather Kathryn found joy in channeling her emotions into every lyric and melody, from late-night sessions in her apartment to hours spent in different studios perfecting the instrumentation. The song's mood is characterized by a blend of anger and angst, making it a cathartic release for listeners who resonate with its message. Whether it's a bad day or a good day, "MY TRAGIC LIFE" is meant to be screamed out in the car or blasted through headphones as a reminder that it's okay to feel frustrated and to demand recognition.

One standout lyric from the song's second verse encapsulates Heather Kathryn's frustration with gender stereotypes and societal expectations: "By now I thought I’d be a rockstar / They told me that was only for men / Being a woman has kinda held me back / Guess I’m only going places cause I’ve got a nice rack." These words resonate deeply with Heather Kathryn, reflecting her personal experiences and serving as a defiant declaration of her worth as a woman in the music industry.
