I wake up in the morning
Trying to catch my breath
In my dream the room was falling
And I couldn’t move from my bed
I know that I’ll be fine
And it’s all just in my head
But I can feel the walls
Pressing down on my chest

And it makes me uncomfortable
Uncomfortable

My sheets feel like a prison
In the middle of the night
Keeping my mouth shut
And my hands tied
All my worst fears come alive at night
When it’s quiet
Just me and my mind

I know that I’ll be fine
And it’s all just in my head
But I can feel the walls
Pressing down on my chest

And it makes me uncomfortable
Uncomfortable

I know that I’ll be fine
And it’s all just in my head
But I can feel the walls
Pressing down on my chest


And it makes me uncomfortable
Uncomfortable

Cannxn - Uncomfortable (Interview)

Interview

We are very happy today. We have a super visit from Megan Cannon. His music made us dance and we were super excited.

Megan Cannon, we really want to get to know you better. Tell us about yourself.

Hi! My name is Megan Cannon and I am a songwriter and producer working under the name CANNXN. I’m currently drinking my third cup of coffee and procrastinating tracking vocals for a new song.

We would like to know your history as an artist.

My music journey started one week after I went to go see Taylor Swift for the first time. After seeing her play “You’re Not Sorry” on the acoustic guitar, I knew that was what I wanted to do. I picked up a variety of instruments slowly over time, and started playing local open mics around town, and exclusively played covers. I went to go see a lot of shows over the years, and really started to get serious about songwriting the more I went. I was sick of covering the same songs, and wanted to make music like the bands I was going to see every weekend. From that point onward, I learned to produce demos for the songs I was writing and those demos turned to fully produced tracks, and that is where I am at currently!

Tell us the story of this song.

I started this song in April, and it was one of the first songs I wrote while really in quarantine. A couple of weeks before I wrote this song, my laptop crashed and the whole disc was wiped, so everything I had been working on for the past 6 months was gone. I felt like I had lost all sense of direction and had an overwhelming feeling of anxiety. I paced my bedroom for a few days and was just aimless, and eventually just sat myself down and wrote about everything I was feeling since being home. It gave me something to dedicate all the excess energy to, and moved me in a forward direction. Production wise, most of it was done by me, but I had some additional help from Connor Weinstein of 137 Productions, and he really helped bring the track to life. I really wanted to give the track anxious undertones, because that was the main feeling I was writing about, and I’m proud of how it came out.

Tell us a funny story from your career.

The first open mic I ever played is equally funny and sad. It was at a local coffee shop, and I had prepared a cover of “High and Dry” by Radiohead. I went up front to the makeshift stage, and played the cover. Looking back, it wasn’t the worst thing ever, it was shaky and I messed up the chords once or twice, but not terrible, but at the time, it was the end of the world. I was so overwhelmed with all the attention being on me for the first time (as I was very much a shy introvert) that I broke down and cried after the song was done. The host of the open mic, my parents, my vocal coach at the time, and one of the performers all came to give me a hug and cheer me up, but I just sat there and cried for a few minutes, and eventually the tears shifted to laughter, and we all sat there laughing. It’s a funny story to look back on, especially because that was my first time ever performing.

Also tell a story of overcoming.

I think my best story of overcoming is really just putting myself out there and releasing my first single. My whole life I was always the quiet person who kept to herself that had a love for music, and I was never the type to sing loudly around friends, or truly say what I was thinking. Putting out music is a very vulnerable thing, and releasing a song where everyone listens and hears what you have to say is scary, but worth it.

Leave a message for your fans.

Check out @cannxnmusic on Instagram and tell me about your day. I love hearing everyone’s stories and would love to connect with you! I would also like to encourage you all to wear that crazy outfit you keep in the back of your closet. Life is too short to save the sparkly mini skirt for “someday”.

Megan Cannon, your music is fantastic. Thank you for being here. We wish you much success!

And see you in the next interview. Bye!
