A track from Kirsten Proffit's acclaimed 2012 album My Devotion, "California" is a song about getting over the past and moving on with life.
"California is the realization that you can't go back to love affairs of the past," Proffit declares. However, many listeners also interpret the song's lyrics to be about a personal love/hate relationship with California itself.
One who attracts, repels, embraces, rejects, welcomes, shuns and tempts back once more can simultaneously represent a person, place, lifestyle and an obsessive dream, and "California" musically expresses it.
Other outstanding women artists on the L.A. music scene, including Manda Mosher, Jaime Wyatt and others, are joining her on other musical projects.
Spending much of her childhood in Majorca, Spain greatly expanded Kirsten's worldview, sharpened her instincts, and rounded her perspective.
The depth of her songwriting reflects the dynamics of a diverse life that typifies Californian philosophy.
Kirsten Proffit's music is prominently featured on many hit TV shows and in Hollywood films due to her intensely passionate songwriting style and straight-forward delivery.
"California" is a song that represents the emotionally honest appeal of songwriter Kirsten Proffit. According to many, "California" is the best of all songs about California this year.
