Carmel Mikol Shares New Single ‘Trying Not to Hurt You’

Canadian singer and songwriter Carmel Mikol shares her brand new single Trying Not to Hurt You, the latest single to be taken from her forthcoming album I Used to Know
I am really enjoying her rich, powerful vocals which effortlessly command the listener's attention to her storytelling. Trying Not to Hurt You is a song that comes from a place of accepting the full realm of life's emotion, a relatable storytelling flawlessly conveyed through her raw, emotional vocal delivery. Backing her gorgeous vocals we have intricate acoustic and electric guitar strums that come together to create a warm and intimate atmosphere perfect for an introspective day home alone.



Speaking about the song, Carmel Mikol said, 
This song, and the whole album it’s part of, is about facing up to the painful “ands” of life: I love you AND we aren’t healthy together; I’m trying to stay with you AND I need to leave. Sometimes we just need to break our own hearts a little bit to make the hard decision.
