Cami Petyn is a Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter who just released her edgy alternative-pop anthem to overcoming anxiety and self-doubt, “Static.” With lyrics like, “And the pain keeps me up late waiting, contemplating,” and “How am I supposed to sleep when my thoughts are on the run I chase them down, pull out a loaded gun,” Cami is unafraid to push artistic boundaries, be unapologetically herself, and turn pain into power.
Although the track’s substantial lyrics are hidden a bit behind the upbeat song, “Static” remains transparent, backed up by Cami’s rich vocals. With this song, she hopes to give the listener an electrifying listening experience and to allow them to feel less alone in their own hardships.
Her hopes are being accomplished, because we definitely felt the vibes of the song and could relate to it all at the same time.

“The song, “Static,” was birthed while having an existential crisis one night,” says Cami. “I was panicking about the future, knowing I wanted to pursue music, but at the same time being full of such extreme self-doubt and anxiety. To say it lightly, I was an anxious wreck that night. Until, I decided to try to write about what I was feeling as a form of catharsis. And thus, a couple hours later, “Static” was born. Quite beautiful poetic irony that this is now my debut single as an official artist.”
With over 400,000 followers on social media, Cami is here to stay, make a difference, and share her talent with the world.
