Weightless

Weightless was written in mid-2020 when, among other things, I was confronted with the fact that after four years of struggling with an eating disorder, I still had crippling anxiety and stress about gaining weight or not being “at my ideal.” Even though I wasn’t skeletal like I had been two years prior, I still had the same fears and emotionally-abusive thoughts. So…I wrote them all down in a song.
Through the process, I realized that these damaging thoughts were leading me toward the “ideal” of being weightless, but obviously, I’m a human being…I can’t weigh zero lbs. Suddenly it became funny, the absurdity of it all. What was I chasing? The perceived ease of nonexistence?  How ridiculous!

And yet, it still takes some work to quiet all those thoughts down. Just like in the song, I had to release my grip on them; I had to shout “they’re not mine!” at the top of my lungs. Writing “Weightless” signaled a switch in my thought process, and one of the first positive steps in my own journey of recovery, however difficult it was to express. Now, I can happily say that I have been delivered from what I now know is anorexia, and those damaging, self-destructive thoughts have no sway on me anymore.

Talon David grew up in a musical household just outside of Nashville, TN. Her parents, being retired performers themselves, introduced her to a vast array of musical styles including Journey, the Eagles, the Beatles, Cindi Lauper, Barbra Streisand, and the original Broadway cast album of Wicked. Talon loved them all, and little did she know that as she listened, she was creating a unique musical vocabulary for herself. She wasn’t to fully use this vocabulary until her freshman year of high school as she wrote her first song. This freedom of expression was intoxicating to Talon and she dove into songwriting headfirst. During her senior year, she got a call that she had won the GRAMMY Foundation’s Teens Make Music Contest with her song “Deep Snow” and got to attend the GRAMMY Awards in LA that year. Suddenly, her music could be for other people—there were strangers out there that would listen to what she had to sing. In late 2021, Talon released her first full-length album, Miscellaneous, completely written, sung, recorded, produced, mixed, and mastered by herself. Six years in the making, it served to center her focus on her sound and draw her niche listeners out from their introverted dream worlds. As she looks toward her second album, set for release in 2023, she aims to take them on a journey into her own dream world.
