MusicTAP is pleased to present to you the exclusive video premiere of Abigail Dowd’s “Old White House” — it’s a deeply personal and powerful song that finds Abigail coming to terms with a painful childhood trauma. She says that it’s about “being able to look back at a moment and life and give that version of yourself all the love and compassion, whatever is needed, to start to move on from it without the shame. “
Abigail’s life story is weaved within the lines of her new album, Not What I Seem; she is a child of the South, who ventured to Florence, Italy, then Maine, in search of how she fit into the world – eventually ending up right where she started, with a new realization of the separation between herself and her experiences. Not What I Seem spans songs that tell her story of finding forgiveness, healing and even gratitude, for all that has shaped her. By sharing these parts of herself, she lets them go.
Not What I Seem is currently available
