Her song, “Lonely Girl,” is one of acceptance and of hope. It was born out of a hurtful time for Symon, but the message of her song is one that will make you feel something. She incorporates sign language into her song, and it can be heard on radios across the country now. Symon sat down with Glitter to talk about her music, what inspired “Lonely Girl,” what projects she has down the pipeline, and what being an artist means to her.

 

GLITTER: How would you describe your sound?

SYMON: Definitely pop but with a Symon twist! 🙂

GLITTER: What does being an artist mean to you?

SYMON: It means everything to me. I can’t imagine doing anything else in my life. I feel very blessed to have multiple platforms of art that inspire various parts of my artistry.

 

GLITTER: What can you tell us about your single, “Lonely Girl?” Did any event inspire you to write that song?

SYMON: “Lonely Girl” was born from an experience where a group of people hurt and betrayed me beyond anything I could have imagined. They were like family to me and went behind my back and sabotaged a lot for me.

 

GLITTER: We know that you also know sign language. Was there a specific reason why you wanted to include it in your single?

SYMON: I always knew someday I would incorporate sign in my art but never knew how. When the release for lonely girl was coming near I had this feeling in my gut that this would be the perfect song to sign. The song is the most authentic song I’ve ever released and sign is one of the most precious things in my private life I thought, why not combine them. One of the loneliest times of my life was when I was in high school being outcasted by other girls and my outlet was sign. Signing Lonely Girl was just full circle for me and felt so appropriate. I feel so incredibly blessed from the response this video is getting, thank you!
