Misao McGregor's Debut Album"KID IN THE CORNER"
ABOUT KID IN THE CORNER // "Kid In The Corner" is Misao McGregor's debut album, featuring 11 tracks and 9 songs, and will be released to all major streaming platforms on December 17, 2020.
In a time of such political divisiveness, Misao finds that storytelling and relating personal details can help humanize one's experiences of difference, allowing others to empathize and shift their perspectives, even if only slightly. Her album seeks to provide a voice for those who feel marginalized and disenfranchised while also showcasing her unique and individual experience as a queer, non-binary, mixed-race human in this world.
"After graduating from college and having an existential crisis about what my life is and is supposed to be, I started to focus all of my anxieties into making this album. It's autobiographical and takes an introspective look into the last 24 years of my life. I openly sing about empowerment, abuse, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, body dysmorphia, self-harm, queerness, PTSD, trauma, and healing, and hope that it can provide some modicum of comfort to anyone experiencing something similar.
"Each song is meant to shed away another layer of all that I can be to get to the core of who I am. It's an homage to the experiences that have shaped me, both good and bad, and acts as an end to a chapter only to start anew."
