“Priscilla’s songs emanate authenticity, making others feel they have a place at the table, and someone new to relate to” – MusicRow
Additionally, Block releases today her brand new song and lyric video, “My Bar,” a defiantly independent track written by Block, Stone Aielli, and Lexie Hayden. Illustrating her firm-footed approach as she embarks on this next chapter of her life, Priscilla’s empowered stance in “My Bar” is a glimpse into the overall feeling of Welcome To The Block Party – an unapologetic recapturing of one’s own self-worth and unwavering confidence.
“I cannot believe that my debut album is almost here. It has all the trash, all the sass, and all the sad. But hey, that’s my life, and I’m so excited for the world to finally hear this. I wrote all of these songs from a real and raw place, and I am grateful that I have the opportunity to show various aspects of where I’ve been and who I am.
Everyone knows that I love a good bar, so “My Bar” felt a perfect place to kick off the new record!!
Welcome to the Block Party Baby!!!! “– Priscilla Block
