Charlotte, NC native Margolnick – the artist moniker of songwriter Drake Margolnick – has shared his new single “Breathe It All In,” available now on all DSPs worldwide. It will be featured on Margolnick’s upcoming self-titled album, out on March 4th via Bright Antenna Records. “Breathe It All In” is a soaring alt ballad that seemingly explodes out of the speakers as you listen. It was the first song Drake Margolnick and producer Eddie Jenkins wrote together in London for the album.
“‘Breathe It All In’ is the strongest song on the album,” Margolnick says. “After this song I knew that I had to write the rest of the album with Eddie there in London, and that’s what we did. London itself was a big inspiration for the album as well, the city seeped into each song in different ways.”
Drake Margolnick knows that sometimes you have to hit the restart button. He knows that change is not only inevitable, but necessary, both in your personal life and in your art. He knows that becoming who you’re meant to be can require letting go of who you’ve been. It’s these sentiments that inhabit Margolnick, the songwriter and musician’s debut solo album under the eponymous moniker Margolnick. After spending years playing with his longtime band Flagship and releasing two full-length albums, Drake found himself ready for the next chapter.
In many ways, Margolnick is Drake being his most authentic self. The songwriting is accessible and relatable, with real intention behind it. For Drake, who is free-floating until he’s able to find himself back in London again, pushing himself to go solo has meant beginning again as an artist and as a human. It’s through that new beginning that he’s been able to reconnect with himself, but, more importantly, to connect with his listeners. Margolnick was created inside one person, but it will now drift out into the world, offering itself to anyone who needs some comfort or to know they aren’t alone. It’s a reminder that something good always comes from the struggle and that change can be the thing that saves us.
