Vocalist/guitarist MC Cunningham explains:

“Tell Me” is a song about losing your sense of self and trying to get it back. In my experience as both a musician and an academic, I have found that there is a terrifying sense of helplessness in trying to figure out who I am and what is unique about me, and, when people tell me I’m doing it wrong, it’s easy to take that really seriously. This song is about confronting that helplessness and choosing to turn to my closest support network of family and friends to remind me of who I am at my core.

The Dreaded Laramie feel that they are part of a chorus of young Southern bands challenging what it is to be normal. Bassist Drew Swisher comments: “Normalcy defines our dreams and what we think is possible. But everybody’s weird, we just try desperately to hide it.”

Everything A Girl Could Ask was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Justin Francis, Produced by Adam Meisterhans, and written by The Dreaded Laramie and Adam Meisterhans.
