Brooklyn, NY-based artist TOMI today shared “Every Morning I Feel Like Running Away,” the second single from her new EP, What Kind Of Love, out May 18th via RCA Records. The song represents the culmination of TOMI’s journey towards self-empowerment. Its unfettered and emotionally supercharged sound was born from a fierce determination to find her voice and be herself, even in the face of life’s obstacles.

“I grew up with three sisters in a small house outside of Hartford, CT. My family went to church every week; I still have a lot of Catholic guilt in me, and although I came out at age 12, I stepped back into the closet as a teenager (for reasons also connected to that guilt). It wasn’t until the end of high school that I fully accepted who I was,” TOMI explains. “Then when I first moved to Brooklyn, I was playing with my band at least two times a week in dive bars all over the city while working Monday to Friday as ‘Pam the secretary’ at an investment bank in midtown. It was my personal hell. A year in, I took my first holiday, crashing on my friends’ couch in Los Angeles, and woke up in the middle of the night to him frantically running into the living room to see if I was still there. He’d dreamt that I was gone and all that was left on the couch was a note that said, ‘I’m sorry.’ He’d understood my secret: every morning I felt like running away. This song is an ode to overcoming the desire to leave it all behind and finally accept who you are.”

“Every Morning I Feel Like Running Away” follows the anthemic title track first single, “What Kind Of Love,” which can be heard HERE [LINK]. Read more about TOMI at her bio HERE [LINK].
