In the rich tapestry of singer-songwriters, Don’t Call Me Tina, alias for Christina Brennan, stands out as a remarkable artist who wreathes the contradictions in her heart into poetic expression in her latest single, “I’m Not Human,” released Sept 8.
Remixed by Tyler Ripley in the singer’s hometown guts down a soulful confession from the first strum of the guitar. “I’m Not Human” immerses listeners in its raw and emotionally charged atmosphere. Don’t Call Me Tina, gifted with powerhouse vocals, takes on a more somber and reflective tone in this track.
At its core, “I’m Not Human” explores the profound emotions tied to love guilted with one’s conscience when the person has unintentionally taken their partner away from their home and friends, only to grapple with the consequences if the relationship were to falter.
Don’t Call Me Tina’s influences, like Sheryl Crow, Bonnie Raitt, and Grace Potter, shine through in her music and her vocal styling taking on a contemplative route. Her ability to convey complex emotions through her soulful vocals and storytelling aligns her with these musical legends.
Initially recorded in Nashville, Tyler Ripley later remixed it in the singer’s hometown, Philadelphia.
“I’m Not Human” invites us to reflect on our own experiences with love and guilt, and it does so with honesty and vulnerability. Don’t Call Me Tina’s soulful confession of guilty love is a powerful reminder of the emotional complexity that makes us all undeniably human.
